Jason Statham's love life is as interesting as his career. The actor found love with a partner almost half his age, but their thriving family proves that age is only a number.
Fans are often delighted once they spot Jason Statham in any movie. The Hollywood hitman has a reputation for taking on no-nonsense roles that demand intense action with a thrilling plot.
The 54-year-old has convincingly played several high-profile action movie franchises, such as "The Transporter," "Crank," "The Expendables," and "The Fast and the Furious." Statham is a high-speed actor and one of the most well-known action stars in the entertainment industry, with dozens of films grossing billions of dollars at the box office throughout the world.

However, his love life did not kick off as easily as his career did. Statham had to wait until 42 to find love. The actor fell in love with a stunning beauty who captured his heart.
MEETING HIS TRUE LOVE
Statham is often recognized for his ruggedness in his movies. However, he is a nice and vulnerable man in real life. Like anyone else, the actor had suffered from heartbreak and was in search of love.
Being a star actor, Statham was never bankrupt of top-class women. The actor never struggled to get the ladies, but keeping them was tough. The "The Expendables" actor has dated several notable celebrities, but all ended in heartbreak.

The actor dated Alex Zosman, and the duo was an item until they suddenly called things off. Statham also dated Kelly Brook for seven years when he was younger, but things ended badly between the duo. Brook called Statham a "skint" after their split.
Statham later met supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at a party in London in 2009. He was 42-years-old at the time, and she was a stunning 22-year-old model. The couple had an instant connection.
Some fans did not easily approve of their relationship after they went public two years later. Some fans felt their age difference could be a bother, but Huntington-Whitely maintained that age has never come between them.
Huntington-Whitely said she was captivated by Statham's sense of humor. According to the "Mad Max: Fury Road" actress, the "Fast & Furious" actor keeps her in love with him with his unique humor.
STATHAM AND ROSIE'S INCREDIBLE ROMANCE
The former Victoria's Secret model and her charming beau did not waste time building thrilling memories. The duo was spotted on vacation together, and Statham looked more in love than he had ever been.
The lovebirds enjoyed a remarkable time in Miami, where they were spotted cuddling by the poolside. Huntington-Whitely also accompanied Statham to most of his Hollywood events, and they looked like a true power couple.
Things progressed quickly between the pair, and in 2012, the supermodel hinted that she was ready to start a family. Huntington-Whitely posed for a shoot for the September cover of Elle Magazine and mentioned that she would love to start a family with her famous boyfriend.
The actress also noted that motherhood would play a huge role in her life. Despite the demand of her industry, Huntington-Whitely said she was willing to explore other interests, which include being a mom.
After dating for over five years, Statham was convinced he had found the perfect woman for him. Huntington-Whitely was spotted rocking her gorgeous engagement ring on the 2016 Golden Globe Awards red carpet in Beverly Hills.
Years after their engagement, the couple remain unsure of when they will walk down the aisle, but Huntington-Whitely revealed that they still talk about and are happy with the family they have.
STARTING A FAMILY
In early 2017, news emerged that Statham and his fiance were expecting their first child together. The model was spotted with a growing baby bump. The couple welcomed their son, Jack Oscar, later that year.
Motherhood has been a thrilling experience for Huntington-Whitely. The model tries to keep her son away from the spotlight as much as possible, but she sometimes opens up about what the journey looks like.
The 34-year-old is grateful to have Statham by her side for a start. The model once called the "Wrath of Man" actor an amazing dad. During an Instagram Q & A with her fans, the actress said her partner was a supportive and hands-on father.
Some fans wanted to know if Oscar inherited Statham's accent, to which the model replied that their son had a proper English accent and not a loud voice like his father.
In general, motherhood is fun for Huntington-Whitely. According to her, each special moment with her son leaves her grateful. Furthermore, she confessed that motherhood made her more confident.
In a chat with Harper's Bazaar, Huntington-Whitely said, "Motherhood is so overwhelming. It encompasses every single emotion, and at such a heightened level."
Huntington-Whitely's motherhood journey just took a new leap. The model recently shared an Instagram post where she revealed the birth of their daughter Isabella. The new mom shared a picture of the toddler's crib, and fans could not help but comment on the post.
The 34-year-old mostly kept her second pregnancy out of the spotlight, but she shared a picture in August showing her growing stomach. Other model moms shared sweet congratulatory messages following Isabella's arrival.
THE BIG SECRET
Statham and his partner now have their hands full with two kids to cater for. However, the couple has a secret to ensure their relationship stays afloat through any challenges they might have as parents or in their careers.
According to Huntington-Whitely, their age difference has never been an issue in their relationship. Also, the couple has found ways to manage the pressures of their busy lives and the expectations of their fans.
Many fans would love to see Statham walk down the aisle six years after his engagement, but the couple plan to wait a while so their son can grow and take part in the wedding. So far, there's no timeline as to when the "Fast & Furious" actor will say "I do" to his longtime partner.
