Break out the Reynolds Wrap! Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy are celebrating 10 years of marriage today and traditional gift-giving dictates lots and lots of aluminum. (Modern folk prefer diamonds.) Defying Hollywood marriage and relationship odds, Bill and Flicka (her nickname) have way more than a decade of wedded bliss between them. The two go back 25 years when Bill spotted a becoming young gal in one of his acting classes at the Atlantic Theater Company. Professional decorum be damned. Teacher and student struck up a relationship and played house for a good 15 years before finally tying the knot — hopefully not in a cow pasture. “I would like to thank the incomparable William H. Macy for taking a chunky 22-year-old with a bad perm and glasses out into a cow pasture and kissing me and making me his wife," Felicity said when she accepted her Best Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy in 2005. The method actors are parents to two daughters, Sofia, 7, and Georgia, 5, who bring their mommy breakfast in bed every Mother’s Day while daddy does the dishes downstairs. Say it with me: Awwww.  So congrats to the happy couple and here’s to another 10 and many more!
