Clark was focused on his career and he didn't want to look unprofessional revealing his feelings, so he kept quiet. Remembering those days, Clark explained,
"I didn’t want to mix romance and cooking."
Remembering the past days, she said,

"I loved that he was thrilled by something that always thrilled me."
Well, things went on the same way and the two finally chose one another for their entire life.
The couple is blessed with an adorable daughter, Ava Clark. Talking about her daughter,
"My daughter is the first thing, sleep is the last, and everything else is sandwiched in between."
"My daughter is interested in cooking, so we'll roll dough together or I'll help her make dinner there."
