British-American actress Jane Seymour from "B Positive" is a mother of four adult kids from her failed marriages. Even with her TV career, she was a present parent, attending to her children's needs while taking them on work tours.

Aside from juggling work and parenting, the excellent mom tried to maintain a cordial relationship with her ex-spouses and the father of her kids.

 UNTOLD TRUTHS ABOUT JANE SEYMOUR'S FOUR MARRIAGES

The first time Seymour ever said the words "I do," she was in her 20s. Her first marriage was to Michael Attenborough, son of Richard Attenborough. 

Their union lasted from 1971 to 1973 and did not produce any offspring. Four years after the divorce, she tied the knot with Geoffrey "Geep" Planer, related to the Hollywood star Nigel Planer.

Within a year, their marriage failed. Seymour felt angry and betrayed as a young two-time divorcee, especially since her ex-husbands had initiated the divorce.

However, she overcame the sadness by applying life lessons given to her by her mother. The "B positive" star believed that everyone faced challenges and that some people's crosses to bear were heavier than hers.

In 1981, she married Flynn, and they shared a daughter, Katherine, and a son, Sean. However, by 1992, the couple had divorced.

The union collapsed after the actress discovered that her businessman husband had lost their family fortune. Seymour was in her prime and had amassed tremendous wealth, which she trusted Flynn to manage.

Unfortunately, he became involved with various business investments without his wife's knowledge. While she felt betrayed again, Seymour struggled with finances and homelessness. 

Thankfully, she redeemed her fortune and was able to shield her kids from poverty after bagging a role in "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman." The series ran from 1993 to 1998.

Seymour's marriage ceremony occurred that same year. The actress and Keach welcomed twins John and Kristopher. They posed as a power couple for more than two decades until a shocking revelation about their divorce rocked the media in 2013.

This was also a hard pill to swallow for Seymour. She felt their marriage would last forever. However, their forever came rather soon, and it was devastating for her.

The gossip mills circulated talks about Keach being unfaithful. Seymour later confirmed that her husband was indeed having an affair with someone close to the family.

The illicit romance had been ongoing for a while before she realized it, which made it more frightening. It was hard to accept, so she struggled to patch the marriage, but it crumbled. Eventually, they parted, and Seymour focused on dating other people.

JANE SEYMOUR FOUND LOVE AT AN UNLIKELY AGE

Despite the failed marriages, the "Wedding Crasher" actress was never convinced that true love was a lie, and it happened to her in due time.

Although she never considered settling down with another man, the following year after her fourth divorce, she ran into a former friend, David Green, a British film producer.

Green, who almost directed Seymour in a film, maintained a friendship with the actress, and they shared mutual friends.

He had experienced a failed marriage due to his former partner's choice. Aside from being a divorcee like his friend, they both had no lover in their lives at the time.

This seemed like the perfect timing. In 2014, they began dating and are still together. The "B Positive" star has refrained from answering whether they would tie the knot or not, but it appears they are doing incredibly fine.

Seymour confessed that although they have peculiar matters to attend to, including worrying about their health, exes, adult kids, and future, they would rather enjoy the invaluable connection.
