The couple have been together since 2011 and believe the secret to their successful relationship is always "speaking their minds".

She said: "I don't let it fester, he doesn't let it fester. We speak our minds. Sometimes you have to walk away."

To which he quipped back: "Don't lie, it's all about rock paper scissors."

And Vanessa feels communication is really important for the pair of them.

She added: "I know that sounds cliche, but he isn't a mind reader. I'm crazy, I go from hot to cold, happy to sad. He's literally like, 'I wanna be there for you, but I don't know how. And I'm like, 'Let me tell you what's going on right now. I have this going on with this, I feel this from the kids, and I want this from you.' And he's like, 'Okay, let's work on this.' Otherwise, how is he supposed to know that? And vice-versa."

And whilst Vanessa is very grateful for the couple's fame and celebrity status, she admits it can make some daily tasks tricky to carry out.

She told PEOPLE Now: "It's not hard because we are very grateful for our industry and what we do and I don't want to sound ungrateful for that. But yes, when you throw in the element of kids and they look absolutely obnoxious. We were in the airport and I just started crying. I faced the wall and tears started coming down. I turned around and I'm like, 'We're ready! Let's go through TSA.'"
