When did Natasha Henstridge marry Darius Campbell Danesh?

Henstridge began a relationship with Scottish singer Darius Campbell in 2004.

They got engaged but broke it off in early 2010 after work commitments forced them apart.

However, they were reunited after five months and almost immediately got engaged before later tying the knot at the San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara in 2011.

When did Natasha Henstridge and Darius Campbell Danesh get divorced?

The couple filed for divorce in July 2013, and the divorce was finalized in February 2018.

Speaking previously on Loose Women, Darius said: “In the most bittersweet and wonderful way, we’re dear friends.

“We filed for divorce three years ago. I really meant what I said, when you stand in front of someone and you say I’m going to give you my life, you mean it.

“And if you don’t, you shouldn’t be in it, so get out.

He added: “We tried to make it work and we’ve separated and we’re divorcing. But in the best way and we’re still friends.”

Do they have any children together?

Darius and Natasha did not have any children together.

But while she dated American actor Liam Waite from 1996 to 2004, they had two sons together, Tristan River and Asher Sky.

Darius admitted the break-up with Natasha was complicated because he became a father figure for her sons.

Speaking on GMTV, he said: “Natasha had two incredible children, Tristan and Asher, and I had the fortune of – over many years – being a very close friend to them and I shudder to say the word stepfather, but you grow to love these children as closely as you could your own.

“And so that makes a break up difficult, but actually it’s been a very positive experience because we’re both excited about future challenges and opportunities and our careers. “
