The medical drama "Chicago Med" is gaining popularity with each season. With the show already in its sixth season, exciting relationship drama unfolds, but what about their real-life romances?

With occasional cross-overs between other popular Chicago based dramas, including "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Fire," there is never a shortage of twists and turns in the storyline of "Chicago Med."

Several original cast members are still on board, and their onscreen romances continue to evolve. In real life, however, their relationships are rather different, for some, at least.

Yaya DaCosta as April Sexton

Yaya, just like her character, went through a lot of unpleasant events in her life. In 2012 the actress allegedly married independent film producer and director Joshua Bee Alafia.

A year after they welcomed their son, Sankara, the couple suddenly broke up three years into their marriage, but Yaya tells a different story. She admitted that Alafia had never been her real husband and said:

According to her, she broke it off with her ex right after her son's birth because it was "an enlightening experience." The reason for their break-up became known a little bit later, and the two didn't remain friends.

At the end of 2018, the actress reportedly revealed that they lived in separate rooms for months but still shared the same house as they were expecting their child.

Torrey DeVitto as Natalie Manning

This actress's private life is no less complicated than her character's. Way back in 2007, Torrey met her husband, Paul Wesley, on the set of "Killer Movie." 4 years later, the couple got married, but it didn't last.

Paul and Torrey were working in different parts of the continent, which was difficult for both of them. So, when DeVitto landed a small role in "The Vampire Diaries," her husband was happy.

However, 2 years later, the couple broke up for unknown reasons, having said that they remain good friends.

Then Torrey dated Rick Glassman, but the rumor was that the distance wasn't in her favor either, and the couple broke up a year after their relationship started.

DeVitto was working in Chicago, while Glassman was in LA, and there wasn't enough time for them to see each other. 

A few months after their break-up, the actress was spotted with the professional "Dancing with the Stars" dancer Artem Chigvintsev, but again distance reportedly got in the way, and they split as well.

However, this relationship was also over quite soon, 8 months after the couple announced their break-up. In October 2020, Torrey confirmed her romance with the "Blue Bloods" star, Will Estes.
