"It was at least lust at first sight for both of us and then, you know, obviously it developed in that day and that moment. We had instant chemistry that day and then we started dating not long after that and here we are, married with two kids," he explained.

John continued, "I don’t know what counts as our first date because we hung out that day and night, and then hung out. That’s as the kids say. And then we started going on trips together not long after that because we didn’t really live in the same city. I was living mainly in New York, she was mainly living in L.A. and so we would just meet.”

"She would come meet me out on the road. We would go on little trips together. We went to, like, Mexico. We went to Italy. I’d say that the time we fell in love was our first trip to Italy and so we ended up getting married there, and we go back there almost every year … Italy is, like, our love spot," John added.

The pair began dating in 2007 and tied the knot in Italy in September 2013. They share daughter Luna, 3, and son Miles, 12 months.
