Jamie Bell has been very outspoken about being a single parent since his marriage with hot girlfriend, Evan Rachel Woods ended. He explained to the HuffPost Live Host, Caroline Modarressy that being a single dad is a ‘difficult job’.

After the birth of his son, when asked what had changed for him, he said, “"I don't really put myself first anymore. As soon as that kid comes out, you waive that right. Everything you do, every decision you make, you are thinking 5, 10 years down the line ... a lot of stuff doesn't mean that much anymore. Things affect me less, I'm much calmer than I used to be."

He adds, “the idea that it takes a village to raise a kid is true, I mean, it's hard. When you're by yourself, you often need an extra pair of hands. You often need someone to lighten the load a second so you can just breathe. But while it's challenging, the reward is that you have an incredible relationship with your child, cause it's just you." Also, he added that he wouldn't trade that for the world.

He was married to Woods from October 2012 to May 2014. They have a son together. Woods first began dating Bell in 2005 when they shot Greenday’s music video- Wake me up when September ends, together. They got matching tattoos of each other’s initials together. Their relationship ended after a year in 2006.

Woods started dating Marilyn Mansion from January 2007. She described their relationship as ‘healthy and loving’. Mansion has painted two portrayals of Woods which are exhibited at Celebritarian Corporation Gallery of Fine Arts. The inspiration behind the Mansion’s song Heart Shaped Glass is Woods. She also appeared in the music video. The couple then separated in November 2008. Woods was reported saying that they had both decided to take some time apart so that they could concentrate on their work. They again reunited and got engaged in early 2010. But the engagement did not work out and they split.

In 2011, after 5 years of breaking up, Woods and Bell reunited. The couple then got married. Evan gave birth to a baby boy in 2013. But in 2014, they separated. They are proud parents of their son.
