Seems like the duo is not interested in having children right now. It would be a great news for their fans if they changed their mind anytime sooner.

The couple's thought on working together

According to Carrie, it was fun working with her hubby in 'Person of Interest'. They do not get enough time for each other at home.

If they share same work, they would get time for each other which lightens their workload. She revealed that her husband has helped her in most of her works.


Michael Emerson also loves working with his wife Carrie. He feels they are like teenagers while working together.

He said, "It's a little tricky, and it feels kind of odd," he continues. "I think it makes us both feel a little self-conscious. We feel like teenagers, I think when we do scenes together. It's hard not to crack up!"

Emerson further reveals that it feels little difficult to disregard their relationship in front of rolling cameras. "I have to kind of erase her wife-ness, and replace it with the character-ness."

They make a good pair on-screen and off-screen. They are surely a 'made for each other' couple.
