James and I have shared a great life together and have many wonderful memories. We've enjoyed working together, most recently on The Brave, where he joins us for our two mind-bending finale episodes.

The couple has an 8-year-old son named Atlas. Anne was previously married to Coleman Laffoon, a cameraman from 2001 to 2009 and has a 15-year-old son named Homer. Anne met James on the set of 2006 dramedy Men in Trees and soon started falling for him. The duo who appeared together in the Syfy network show, Aftermath started living together in August 2007.

Anne also dated Ellen DeGeneres for 3 years from 1997 to 2000.
