Harrison Ford from 'Call of the Wild' Opens up about Secret behind His Marriage to Calista Flockhart

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart have been married since 2010, and it appears their adoration for one another hasn't blurred even just a bit.

In a recent interview with Parade, the "Call of the Wild" actor revealed the simple secret behind his union with Flockhart. 

"Don't talk," Ford stated. Rather, "nod your head," he added. In any case, that's not it — the iconic actor also said to ensure you do all of your chores.

According to Ford, if his chores are done, and the climate is excellent, he'll go flying or stroll in the forested areas. He added that he also accomplishes some work or ride his bike.

Ford and his wife Flockhart share one child, son Liam. The "Ally McBeal" alum adopted Liam before meeting the veteran actor, as reported by Closer Weekly.

Meanwhile, Ford has four additional children — sons Ben, Willard, and Malcolm, and daughter Georgia — from his two past relationships.

A source once told the outlet that the actor has been attentive to giving Liam his complete consideration. 

Ford began dating then 38-year-old Flockhart after meeting at the 2002 Golden Globes. He was 60 years old at the time.

In 2015, their bond was tested when Ford crashed while flying his World War Two vintage plane.

According to Goal Cast, Flockhart made the first move. The actress reportedly spilled her beverage on the actor purposely to meet him.

The couple didn't admit their relationship quickly despite the rumors and their photographs together. In 2009, Ford proposed to Flockhart, and they got married in June 2010 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Ford and Flockhart additionally credit a good sense of humor for keeping them strong always. In 2015, their bond was tested when Ford crashed while flying his World War Two vintage plane.

The mishap left him with a broken back, shattered ankle and pelvis, and a head wound. But Flockhart kept faithful to her promises and took care of him.

"My wife, who is a wonderful lady, understands my passion for aviation, she understands what it means to me and flies with me to this day," Ford said after the accident. 

Ford and Flockhart's romantic tale is a lesson in never judging a book by its cover and tuning in to your heart.
