“Caroline is a great mom. She has great common sense. She is thoughtful, reserved and she takes a breath before she speaks.”

One of the reasons for their successful marriage was “Marry the right person,” according to O’Donnell. He added, “I was very lucky. We work at it all the time and have good communication.”

The actor further shared one crucial secret for a lasting marriage saying:

“Somebody told us before we got married, ‘Don’t go to bed angry with each other,’ it’s a little thing but it means a lot. If something is bothering you talk it out.”
