The couple first met in 2009 at a fundraiser in San Francisco, got engaged just one year later and Lynch became the step mother of Embry's daughter Haden with her ex-boyfriend.

When asked about her feelings about becoming a step mum, she said; 'I'm almost 50, and I thought that possibility was behind me, so this is a real delight. I never went through a biological clock experience. I never even heard it ticking. ' (IMDB)

The pair were together for three years until Lynch announced that they were divorcing, after a 5 month separation and it was all finalised in January 2014.

"It's not dramatic. It's not a horrible thing. It's something that we're dealing with," Lynch said of her breakup. "It's two people who just decided it's better to go apart than stay together. We have to remain adults, which we have. We keep everybody's -- especially Haden's -- good in our mind." (
