Henchy, a talented screenwriter, and producer, has been sharing enduring love with his wife over the years. Being married to her for almost two decades, Henchy plays a big part in Shields's life, as reported by Closer Weekly.
Since 1990, Henchy has been a prominent screenwriter, writing for comedy shows such as "Campus Cops" and MTV's "The Larry Sanders Show."
His first big break was when he created and produced the television series "Battery Park" in 2002. As the years went by, he became an accomplished professional in his chosen field.
LITTLE SPACE IS KEY
While going about in his career, he eventually met Shields on a TV set in 1999. They tied the knot in April 2001.
The 'Blue Lagoon' star said having a "little space" is a key for a long-lasting marriage. Shields is grateful for Henchy for giving a healthy space in their relationship, as reported by Closer Weekly.
Just like the rest of the world, the couple is practicing home isolation in line with the coronavirus pandemic.
SOURCE OF COMFORT
She recalled a time where she asked Henchy for a company amid their busy calendars. Without any questions, the couple spent quiet time together over coffee. "He got the paper, and we went and sat out. It maybe lasted 45 minutes!" Shields said.
Just like the rest of the world, the couple is practicing home isolation in line with the coronavirus pandemic. The crisis made Shields admire her husband even more deeply.
