The two have two children of their own. The identities of the children remain a mystery as the couple has been stern about keeping them away from all the attention.
Before Chris met Melanie, he was married to his second wife, Carin, for four years. It is believed that the tension in their marriage began after Chris met Mel in 2008. Carin is the mother of two of Chris’s sons, Thomas and Bram.
