Moyer stopped by Watch What Happens Live and explained how it all started with his on-screen lover Paquin. He explained,
'We met screen testing for the show. We were both singles at the time, and there was just this kind of spark. I didn’t see her for three months, and she had gone from having dark hair to this beautiful blond, and I had gone from being blond to this dark vampire.'
"By day three or four – oh, this is going to sound so syrupy – but I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. It was within seconds, really, and it just became a thing."
The X-Men star married Moyer in August 2010 after some years of dating. The gorgeous actress is now a mother to 5-year-old twins Charlie and Poppy.

Unlike many famous celebs, Paquin has kept her kids away from the limelight. During an interview in February 2018, she revealed why her fans have likely never seen photos of her kids.
She told TODAY Parents,
"Everyone chooses what works for their family. There are aspects of one’s private life that are fun and cute and not too revealing. I’ve always been very private. I’m not as neurotic about it as I was when I was younger. I don’t want people to know too much about my real, inner private life."
"That’s part of having been a teenager and feeling constantly, brutally self-conscious and not wanting anyone to stare at me but having a job where that was part of it."
She admitted that raising twins isn't an easy task, still, she loves her kids the most. Paquin and Moyer make a great team as parents upbringing their twins.

While talking to HuffPost Live, she spilled the beans about her sexuality and her relationship with husband. She mentioned that her dual sexuality does not affect her monogamous relationship with husband.
Here's an exclusive report of Clevver News about Anna Paquin opening about her bisexuality:
"There are people that are going to probably go to their grave thinking whatever they think about the LGBT community."
'That's their problem, not mine. And there's people that think that monogamy and bisexuality are mutually exclusive. Again, their problem not mine.'
In recognition of LGBT Pride Month in June 2014, she tweeted,
'Proud to be a happily married bisexual mother. Marriage is about love, not gender.'
The Oscar-winning actress told Zooey magazine in 2010,
'For me, it's not really an issue because I'm someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It's not made up. It's not a lack of decision.'
There's no doubt the couple is enjoying every single day of their wonderful family life. They never miss adoring each other while making public appearances and that's the best way how a relationship lasts forever.
