During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2007, Ben Stiller said;

When I met her, I pretty much thought, 'That's the person'. It was like, 'Wow, this is a great person. I love her.'?

 The couple gave birth to their first child, a baby girl, Ella Olivia,  just a couple of months after their marriage, in 2002. Almost three years after the birth of Ella, Christine again gave birth to her second child; a son named Quinlin Dempsey in 2005.
