Back in the day, she was working as a dental nurse and he was a little known actor working for the South Australian Theatre Company.

They got married on the 7th June 1980, and were wed in a Roman Catholic Church in Forestville, New South Wales.

They now have one daughter together, Hannah, and six sons: Edward, Christian, William, Louis, Milo and Thomas.

The pair unfortunately split on the 29th July 2006. According to Wikipedia, Gibson was interviewed in 2011 and revealed that the spilt happened not long after he was arrested for drunk driving in Malibu.

They cited irreconcilable differences and revealed in a joint statement: "Throughout our marriage and separation we have always strived to maintain the privacy and integrity of our family and will continue to do so." (Wikipedia)

The divorce filing also came not long after Gibson was first seen with Russian pianist Oksana Rigorieva. The settlement was notable for being the largest in Hollywood history, allegedly totalling at £400,000,000.
