A private matter! Jamie Dornan and his wife Amelie Warner keep their love in the shadows, but they are still strong.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” star and the musician began dating in 2010 and tied the knot three years later. Their first child, Dulcie, was born in November 2013 and daughter Elva joined the family in February 2016.
Dornan had been ecstatic about his fatherhood a few weeks earlier, telling the Sunday Times: “Being a dad is the best thing. I feel a healthy and wonderful responsibility to provide for my children, and I really like that. It’s okay with me. Making my children happy is a good idea for me and my wife.
He went on to reveal that he and Warner had only had one serious argument so far in their relationship, saying, “There hasn’t been a day that I haven’t told him that I loves. …Sometimes we get upset, usually when we travel with kids, but we never let something overflow and turn into a thing. We know couples who throw plates, but that’s not us. I’m glad it wasn’t us, the plates are expensive.
Before the songwriter gave birth to daughter No. 3 in early 2019, the Belfast actor told us exclusively that the excitement of having a baby never faded. “It’s the best part of our lives,” he said at the premiere of his film “Private War” in October 2018. “I’m just as excited as I was the first two times.”
Dornan was filming a war drama in Jordan and his little ones were missed while he was away from home. “We worked 16 hour days many times,” he told Us. “You just concentrated on your job. It made him a little more tolerant.
As for the future expansion of their family, Dornan and Warner had no specific plan. “Part of me feels [I need to] put a cork after that,” he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! after the revelation of the couple’s third pregnancy. “But on the other hand, I feel like we’re making really wonderful kids. I can just – if my wife wants – do it until we can’t do it anymore.
Like many parents, the duo have had to adapt to being home with their babies 24/7 during the coronavirus pandemic. Discussing his family life in December 2020, the fall graduate said isolation was both “difficult” and “fun”.
“Kids are amazing because they really live in the present,” he explained on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” “That’s why they don’t care what’s going on and why the world is the way it is at that age. You know they just [think], “This is what we have now, let’s have fun.” So it’s great to be here.
While parenthood can be full of ups and downs, Dornan’s love for Warner has never wavered. “I was amazed from the start, I was really amazed,” he told The Independent in 2015. “I like it more now than when I started.”

The couple sparked their romance after meeting at a Hollywood party.
Dornan asked this question two years later.
The couple tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in April.
Her daughter Dulcie was born on November 21.
Three years later, on February 16, her daughter Elva was born.
While promoting the latest “Fifty Shades” movie, Dornan told Ellen DeGeneres that his wife had “not seen” the movies. “I guess I like to think she likes me more than this guy,” he said of his character.
“This is what I live for,” the BAFTA nominee said of fatherhood, exclusively telling Us that he and Warner are “very, very excited” about expecting baby No. 3.
Albert’s daughter arrived on February 19 and Warner confirmed the baby was born on British Mother’s Day next month.
Dornan told Jimmy Fallon that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought “some of the toughest days” for the couple as parents. “It was all encompassing, it was agony and ecstasy at the same time,” he added.
Two years into the global health crisis, Dornan noted that he usually doesn’t spend more than two weeks away from his family at a time. “I have a two-week period,” he told the British Radio Times. “Although I broke it last week because I had to stay in LA longer than I thought.”
