The couple soon started dating and eventually got married on 19 May 1998. Their love story did not last very long as they split in 2009, and they did not have any children together.

While they were married, they lived in a home in Hancock Park before eventually purchasing a 3,000 square-foot four-bedroom Hollywood Hills house in late 2000. They also operated several zoos in Albuquerque together before their divorce.

They started dating, and two years later, on 11 June 2011, the couple tied the knot.

Recalling how they met, Vanessa Claire said: “He would flirt with me a little bit. I was kind of shy, and he’s obviously gregarious, and I wasn’t sure if he was joking or actually flirting.”

French responded that because of their 13-year difference, he wasn’t sure whether he was coming across as trying to capture the attention of a fine lady or coming across as a pervy guy that no one wanted to see. Thankfully, the attraction was mutual.

After their marriage, Vanessa took his last name and became Vanessa Claire Stewart. In 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Helen Claire. They currently live in Los Angeles, California. For those asking about French Stewart children, he has only one.
