The Irish actor married his longtime girlfriend King last year in a small private ceremony in Ballymaloe Country House Hotel in Co Cork. The couple is having a great time together as they vowed in their wedding to be each other forever.
The news of their marriage didn’t make it to the media until it was made public on RTÉ’s Liveline programme by Dublin city councilor and playwright Mannix Flynn.
He became the first person to congratulate the newlywed couple and to wish them “many years of great togetherness and happiness, that’s fantastic news.”
Though the husband and wife have fallen head over heels for each other, this is not the first time that the In Treatment actor has fallen in love and gotten married.
Byrne was previously married to actress Ellen Barkin with whom he has two children: John "Jack" Daniel born in 1989 and Romy Marion born in 1992.
The couple started dating in 1987 and the actor even relocated himself to New York despite being an Irish citizen. The pair tied the knot a year after their hook up. But unfortunately, they separated in 1993 and then divorced in 1999.
After the separation, the Emmy award-winning star had a relationship with the late TV producer and presenter Aine O’Connor. They also didn’t stay together for very long and now after years, the actor has finally found his better half.
The television film producer King has stolen his heart and the actor is over the moon with his talented wife. King has produced documentaries and docudramas for Discover, Current TV, and PBS among many others.
After all the tumultuous relationship and several ups and downs, Byrne who is strictly private about his personal life revealed in 2012 about him being in a committed relationship with his then girlfriend and now wife King and also said that she was “lovely, intelligent, and beautiful, absolutely beautiful”.
Byrne is one of the most popular actors in Ireland, has been heartthrobs of countless women despite his age so his marriage might have broken several hearts.
The actor, who recently appeared in a TV series named Quirke, is a very private person and does not give away much information about his personal life. So it is really very difficult to find any further scoop about his married life.
He has been listed as one of the “Sexiest Man Alive” whereas Entertainment Weekly has named him one of the hottest celebrities over the age of 50. He published his autobiography, Pictures in My Head in 1995.
