The pair married in 2004 after dating for several years. In addition to all, they exchanged vows in a private ceremony. Still, he expressed his views about the perfect "fairytale wedding."
During an interview, he said that happiness is in everyday day life that something feels like a grand and fairytale marriage ceremony. He said,
"If you think of a “fairytale wedding” ... it’s really just a moment in time. There’s so much more than just that one little moment in life. You have to live your LIFE. Once you hit that moment, it’s not going to make you happy for the rest of your life. Happiness is in everyday life. That’s why I titled my album 'Unfinished'."
The couple welcomed their first child Dante Jordan Knight on 25th August 1999 and the second one, Eric Jacob on 21 February 2007.

Jordan Knight Talking How A Man Think About Woman
Jordan Knight is a mystery to himself. He has many things in him, yet, he barely tries to share most of his personal details.
During an interview, he mentioned himself as an unromantic person but the very next moment he revealed that he fell in love with a girl at age 14.
He wrote all the story in his song, where he explained how he met the girl on the subway but never dared to talk to her at that time.
Well, he's living quite a romantic life with his wife and now, he is frank about a love-related topic. When asked about a boy's perception 'picking on girls', he said,
"I think there’s truth to that. Sometimes when two people are fighting, it’s kind of like there’s some kind of tension there. Why would somebody really even care to fight with you or pick on you if they didn’t care? I think if they didn’t pick at you, it means they’re not interested in you. Sometimes you try to get a person’s attention by being an irritant."
Explaining further, he said that it's just a waste trying to making someone care about you. If a guy is not giving you attention, just keeping oneself busy in your own things and hanging with friends can be far better than trying to get attention from the same guy time and again.
People often believe in 'hard to get' theory but according to Knight, neither woman nor a man like such attitude.
"It’s a human thing. We all want what we can’t get. Don’t want what you can’t get. Let the other person want what he CAN’T get. Be ungettable and you shall get."
Apart from a male asking for a date to a lady, he prefers a girl ask a guy out. Girls may think that they are going too forward in such things but the fact is, a girl asks a guy first when they are very serious about the person.
As there's no way out of the beautiful thing called 'LOVE' so it's better to express the feeling first no matter you being a girl or a boy.
