When they are not portraying our favorite characters, these actors and actresses are the stars of their own real-life stories, and we are so curious to know whom do they share their romantic adventures with.


The second spin-off to come out of military drama/police procedural series “NCIS” has been entertaining American audiences for six seasons, and after seeing this amazing cast week after week for years, we want to know more about their lives. 

Who do they return home to after another day of hard work to bring us one of the best crime series out there? What is their family life now? Here’s a little about the real-life spouses of the stars of “NCIS: New Orleans.”

The 64-year-old actor plays Special Agent Dwayne “King” Cassius Pride in the series. He has been married to 62-year-old actress Chelsea Field for 10 years now, sharing two children with her: Wil Botfield and Owen Barett.

Before marrying his “NCIS: New Orleans” co-star, Bakula was married to Krista Neumann from 1981 to 1995, which resulted in two children named Chelsy and Cody.

After his first marriage suffered because of his career, the actor decided to make his family the priority, and he made sure to do things differently in his second marriage, always saving time to spend with his wife and children.

The 36-year-old actor plays Special Agent Christopher LaSalle in the series. He married Maggie O’Brien, a lawyer, in 2010. They have two children together named Sophie Jo and Augusta York.


Black and O’Brien started dating in 2006. The two now also work together, since O’Brien is in charge of all of her spouse’s contract negotiations.

The 44-year-old actress played Special Agent Meredith Brody for the first and second season of the series. She finalized her divorce from ex-husband Jean-Pierre Gillain in 2016, after being married for four years.

The two share 5-year-old son Sebastian and they were involved in a prolonged and intense custody battle over him that included McLellan’s co-star Bakula testifying in support of his colleague in court.

The 31-year-old actress played Special Agent Sonja Percy until Season 4 of the series. She married her girlfriend of two years, commercial director Sabrina Skau, in 2018.

The happy couple met through a dating app and dated long distance for a year due to Grant having to film in New Orleans.

The 38-year-old actress joined the series on Season 3 to play Special Agent Tammy Gregorio. While she has never been married, she did give birth to son Vince as a single mother in 2007. The identity of the father is not known.

“I’m obsessed with my son. I take parenting to the fullest. I breastfed until he was 2. I’d pump all through the night and have a driver send it to him when I was working,” Ferlito once shared.
