One quality of Sedgwick that has left Bacon awestruck in their 32 years together is how much of an amazing mother she is to their two kids, Travis, 31, and Sosie, 28.
Bacon praised his wife for her ability to get their kids to open up and communicate with them. The actor commended his wife for getting their kids to open up without crossing boundaries.
Their 32 years love story has not been without some hurdles to cross. In 2008, the couple faced one of the most trying times of their lives together. Following the arrest of Bernie Madoff in what was billed as the biggest Ponzi scheme ever, Bacon and Sedgwick realized that they had lost their savings.
Thousands of people lost their savings, and Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison, but the American actor and his wife, Sedgwick, decided not to let it ruin their lives.
They decided to stay positive and were glad to work and recoup all they had lost. The couple said that losing the money did not affect their marriage. Instead, their marriage made it easy for them to cope with it.
The duo has consistently defied the odds in Hollywood, especially in a time where celebrity marriages easily crumble. Bacon ties their stability to the commitment they gave to their family.
The actor revealed that his wife took decisions that did not favor her career to ensure that her kids and family were doing good. On her part, Sedgwick credits her husband for helping her with the confidence and encouragement to start directing.
The 55-year-old gushed about her husband's support for her. Bacon and Sedgwick's love has served as an inspiration for fans who look up to the way the lovebirds support each other. Hopefully their love gets the perfect ending it deserves.
