The pair eventually became an item, marking the start of a long-lasting union. After sustaining their relationship for years, Julia and Brad Hall tied the knot on June 25, 1987. The actress was twenty-six at the time, while her soul mate was 29.

Five years into their marriage, the couple welcomed their first son, Henry Hall, born 1992. Their second son, Charles Hall, arrived in 1997, completing the perfect family of four. Over thirty-three years later, Brad and Julia remain steadfast in their marriage.
