Leighton and Adam have been married for nine years. They began dating after filming The Oranges together back in 2010. They got engaged in 2013 and tied the knot in a small ceremony on Feb. 15, 2014.

And while she knows their relationship is far from perfect, the EXmas star said they've found a way to "just make it work" through the "good and the hard" times.

Leighton and Adam also have two children together, who they prefer to keep out of the spotlight — an 8-year-old daughter named Arlo and a 3-year-old son, whose name has not been made public yet.

The two have continued to flourish on-and-off screen as they've shared the screen together on several projects, including episodes of Single Parents and their latest action-thriller River Wild.
