Suits Cast's Real-life Couples

The first episode of Suits aired back in June 2011 and had viewers hooked on both the characters and actors’ real-life romances.

Since then, we saw nine seasons and over 130 episodes of the legal drama telling about a fictional law firm in New York City. 

We saw the characters growing professionally and personally, and we've always been interested in who they are in real life. Let's see who the actors from "Suits" are dating.

Katherine Heigl aka Samantha Willer

If there were some actors that you didn't know before the show became popular, Katherine Heigl is definitely not one of them. She previously starred in "Grey's Anatomy," which quickly catapulted her to the A-list. 

Heigl has brought some freshness to the series after so many seasons. We have no idea what's going on in Samantha's on-screen love life, though that scene in one of the episodes when she was talking about having someone special in her life gave us a feeling that she started to fall for Harvey.

While we hope that this isn't the case, the actress is doing fine with her real love life. When Heigl was young and reckless, she dated a couple of actors who were not as famous, but in 2005 she met someone very special - singer-songwriter and actor Josh Kelly. 

The two had an instant connection after Heigl appeared in his music video. Heigel is very lucky, as Kelly, a helpless romantic, completely fell for her. He even wrote her a song called "Hey Katie."

The pair have been married for 12 years now, raising two adopted girls. First, they welcomed Nancy Leigh, a baby with a heart defect, whom they adopted from South Korea. They named the baby after Heigl's mother and Katherine's adopted Korean sister. As the actress said:

"I wanted my own family to resemble the one I came from, so I always knew I wanted to adopt from Korea. We have talked about having biological children as well, but we decided to adopt first."

Three years later, they adopted one more baby girl named Adalaide Marie Hope, followed by Heigl's first biological child. It's evident that for Katherine, her family is the most important thing.

Apart from her career and family, Heigl works for an organ donation organization, and she established the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation to preserve her brother's legacy, who passed away at 15. The foundation managed to save 4,500 animals from kill shelters.

Rick Hoffman as Louis Litt

Louis Litt is one of the most peculiar characters in the show. He needed more time to find his significant other than most of the characters. It turns out, Rick Hoffman and Louis have it in common. In real-life, 48-year-old Hoffman is still single.

According to a rumor that's been circulating for a while, Hoffman is gay. He played the role of a gay man in the 2004 movie titled "Our Time Is Up." After all, Hoffman tries so hard to keep his love life away from the media's gaze.

It's not an exaggeration to say that he has a top-secret stamp on his life. He has a son who was born in 2014, but the actor has never revealed anything about him or his mother.

Hoffman has been spotted with British actress Stephanie Waring a few times. But neither of them confirmed the relationship, so Hoffman is still officially single. Perhaps he's just like Louis - waiting for the right person to come along.

Dulé Hill as Alex Williams

We know that Alex Williams can often be aggressive and mean, just like any other character on "Suits." Bringing his wife and daughter on screen definitely revealed another side of him, revealing his gentle nature as a caring father and loving husband.

Though we saw some issues between Alex and his wife on-screen, it's pretty common when married couples work together in the same field.

Just like it was for Alex, Dule Hill's love life hasn't always been so easy. In 2004 he married Canadian television actress Nicole Lyn. They were both working in the industry, so keeping up with each other's schedules was not easy. 

Though they tried their best, Alex filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences after eight years of marriage. Just like Hoffman, Hill doesn't say much about his private life, so fans are left wondering what happened.

When the actor started the new show "Ballers," he met another actress named Jazmyn Simon. His role was only episodic, but he still had enough time to charm Jazmyn. 

So five years after his divorce, he gave marriage a second chance, and it was not in vain. Just this year, he became the proud father of his first son Levi Dulé Hill.

Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter and Sarah Rafferty as Donna Paulsen

Darvey finally happened! We have been waiting for this for eight years. For some of us, finding out whether Donna and Harvey would end up together was the only reason to keep watching the series until the very end -- and they didn't disappoint.

On the other hand, maintaining a passionate on-screen romance for so many years would probably start being a little awkward for Gabriel Macht and Sarah Rafferty.

However, the pair have been best buddies in real-life since drama school when they met at the Williamstown Theatre Festival more than 20 years ago, making them comfortable with each other. 

Macht was the one who suggested Rafferty for the role of Dona. When he saw the script, he knew right away that she would be perfect for the part. They are both extremely talented actors, but their close relationship in real life adds quite a spark between Donna and Harvey on screen.

But both Gabriel and Rachel have significant others at home who might get a little jealous of this intimacy between them.

Macht is nothing like Harvey when it comes to love. The actor has loved one woman for 19 years - Australian–American actress and former model Jacinda Barrett. After four years of dating, the couple got married and are now loving parents to their two kids.

Macht loves his family a lot, saying: "I hate to label her because she's a billion things more than that. But to produce a child that's going to be good for humanity, that's what I'm more proud of. And becoming a father is enormous."

Besides Rafferty, Macht is also a close friend to another star of the series - Meghan Markle. Even though Markle is now busy parenting and handling her new royal duties, she and Macht are still good friends.

Meanwhile, Rafferty is a happily married woman to her husband Santtu, who she met at Yale University. The two have been married for 18 years now and are parenting two children.

The actress and her husband have chosen very interesting names for their kids. Her older daughter is named Oona, which means "lamb" in Gaelic. The younger daughter has quite the common name of Iris, but the parents decided to add "Friday" as her middle name.

Amanda Schull as Katrina Bennett

Katrina has been one of our least favorite characters from the start, considering how she made it into the firm and her contentious relationship with Mike. But the more the show went on, the more we sympathized with her and her troubles with love.

Let's just say that Amanda Schull is doing much better when it comes to love in real-life. Schull has been in a relationship with her now-husband George Wilson for 11 years, whom she met on set.

The decision to get married wasn't an easy one. After three years of dating, one of them had to leave their homeland. Schull is fortunate that George is very supportive of her career. 

He left Australia so that his wife could carry on her career in Hollywood. It looks like having a baby is the next step for Amanda. Schull starred in Mao's Last Dancer, a movie inspired by a professional dancer's autobiography, filmed in Australia.

It turns out Amanda dedicated 26 years of her life to being a professional ballet dancer, so this role was perfect for her. Her elegant floating over the dance floor caught the eye of the graphic designer of the movie. When Amanda went back home, the distance didn't stop them from dating.

Rachael Harris as Sheila Sazs

There's one more cast member that has proven that it's never too late! Like her character Sheila Sazs, Rachael Harris became the mother to her baby boy when no one was expecting it - at the age of 50.

Harris and her husband Christian Hebel, with whom she has an eight-year difference, were very excited to welcome their second baby last year. Rachael's husband is a violinist, and he's doing a good job taking care of their two kids. 

They only welcomed their first baby in 2016, but Harris and Hebel got married in 2015 in a small New York City Hall ceremony. They had a couple of their closest friends, including Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka, who were their two witnesses, and longtime pal - Kelly Ripa.

Patrick J. Adams as Mike Ross

Mike and Rachel were a perfect couple, but it turns out his real-life wife almost ruined this perfection on screen.

The character named Clair, who knew Mike wasn't a lawyer years before he got into the firm and wanted to expose his fraud, was played by Patrick's then-girlfriend Troian Bellisario -- and their love story is too cute to handle.

Both Bellisario and Abrams were in the middle of intense filming schedules, and he just wanted to have some time to relax, so he invited Troian over to his house. 

Imagine her surprise when she saw that Abrams had built a pillow fort and stapled sheets and Christmas lights to the ceiling. They were just friends at first, but after spending so much time talking to each other, they realized their connection could not be ignored.

Eight years since then, Bellisario posted a pic on Instagram, telling their sweet story and turning it into a tradition to celebrate their Fort Day together with close family and friends. 

Now, they have a much bigger fortress - their new home, where they're raising their first baby girl, who was born in October last year. It looks like they're beyond happy!

Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson

Jessica is an example of a strong, intelligent, and elegant woman. Her own spin-off that came out this July turned out to be pretty successful. In it, Jessica entered the world of dirty politics and had to deal with it somehow. 

Though Gina's career has been on the upswing these days, the same can't be said for her 16 year-long marriage to Laurence Fishburne. As Gina commented herself:

"With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected."

The two parted ways quite amicably, as they are still raising their daughter together. Even though Gina has been through some tough times, she's now doing very well for herself and enjoying her life.

Meghan Markle as Rachel Zane

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Meghan Markle is now the Duchess of Sussex and raising her baby with Prince Harry.

The couple chose to handle their first appearance with their baby in their own way, just like they've done with everything involving their relationship all along. Instead of a big crowd of photographers and people waiting outside the hospital, they had a very cozy reception inside the Windsor castle.

The baby's full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Soon after his birth, the proud parents posted a picture of baby Sussex holding Harry's finger to celebrate Prince's first Father's Day on June 16th.

While busy raising her child, Markle still keeps in touch with her co-stars from "Suits." She is good friends with Rafferty and Macht. It was so cute to see the whole main cast at the royal wedding in fancy dresses and hats. But the bride, Meghan, certainly was the most beautiful woman that day.
