Although a private couple, Darryl and Tempestt, came into the spotlight when they appeared on Fox's 2009 reality show, "House Husbands of Hollywood."

The show focused on showing the daily lives of stay-at-home husbands of successful career women.

Tempestt was announced as the new host of the Emmy-award-winning daytime show, "Clean House."

Despite having an unconventional relationship, the duo's love for each other remains unwavering. While speaking about his long-lasting relationship with Tempestt, Bell explained that the actress made him very happy.

Even though Bledsoe and Darryl don't appear to be rushing into marriage any time soon, they revealed that they believed in matrimony. Bell said:

"...we are happy and we have been happy, so we will see what the future brings."
