Interestingly, when the Hollywood couple met, they were both recently divorced and had completely given up on getting into new romantic relationships respectively.

Despite their lack of interest in dating, they formed a great friendship, with Steenburgen admitting that she could not have as much fun when Danson was absent in a gathering.

The pair's friendship would later take a turn after a canoe and picnic trip organized by Danson. According to him, they both came back smitten with each other, and thus, their love story began.

Two years into their relationship, Danson proposed to his beau on her birthday—while she was filming a movie. On October 7, 1995, the couple said their "I dos."

Steenburgen describes having a blended family as a remarkable experience, adding that they are both very in love with their four children.
