They now have two daughters- Stephanie (1991) and Cassidy (1996). Cassidy lives with her mum in England while Stephanie lives in Los Angeles.

Austin also adopted Jade, Clarke's daughter from her previous marriage to Chris Adams.

Clarke has been credited with helping Austin develop his 'Stone Cold' persona. Allegedly while he was toying with changing his ring name from 'The Ringmaster' to something new she told him to drink his tea before it got 'stone cold' and then suggested the nickname. She was also apparently integral to creating the Austin 3:16 catchphrase.

The coupe got divorced in May 1999.
