They have been married for almost 17 years now, but the romance between Melrose place star Laura Leighton and her actor husband, Doug Savant, has not yet died. Despite being married for almost two decades, the couple is still truly, madly and deeply in love.
Unlike other celebrity couples, who tend to break apart within a few years of marriage or romance, Leighton and her dearest husband are pretty much in love with each other. And these two love birds have a rather adorable way of keeping their romance alive and expressing their feelings for each other. The happily married couple loves to leave little love notes around the house for each other. Well, how do we know about this? A source told us, of course.
The insider, who claims to be quite close to the much in love couple, gave us this interesting and romantic piece of information about the husband and wife duo. The source revealed that Leighton and Savant love to leave little love notes in the house for when they are too busy to see each other.
“Laura and Doug are like a teenage couple. They are hopelessly in love with each other and they always find a way to express their love in some way,” said the informant.
They further added: “Both Laura and Doug are quite busy with their work and due to their hectic schedules, they sometimes can’t spend private time together. If Laura is free then Doug might have to go for a shoot and if Doug is home then Laura might have to go out for work. So Laura invented this love note thing so she could communicate and leave messages for her husband.
“Now, you may think ‘why not call or send text messages? Why leave love notes if you have smart phones in your hands?’ But sometimes, they both get so engaged in their work that they hardly get time to text or call each other. So they simply leave notes for each other to find.
“This way the couple get the feeling of being cared and loved and they feel that the love notes help them to keep the romance between them alive. They feel like young lovers and Laura thinks that leaving messages on papers helps her feel young and beautiful,’ explained the source.
The Pretty Little Liars star is actually a ‘pretty little lover’, isn’t she? (wink).
The Golden Globe nominated actress is best known for the role of Sydney Andrews in the television series Melrose Place and as Ashley Marin on ABC Family's series Pretty Little Liars.
She got married to her husband in 1998 and the couple has two children: Jack and Lucy. Leighton also helped raise Savant's two daughters from his previous marriage, Arianna and Madeline.
