Carin van der Donk's Married Life

The lady began dating the actor in 1996. Just a year later, they decided to become life partners and got hitched in the presence of their family and friends on March 22, 1997. 

From their marriage, the couple welcomed their first child, son Elias Gene D'Onofrio who was born in December 1999. 

Almost Divorced 

As wonderful as their relationship is right now, it might be hard to imagine that the lovely pair were almost separated in the past. In 2000, without disclosing any reasons, both of them announced that they had split and will soon divorce.

The news shocked the world, and it became tough for Carin and Vincent as Elias was only two years old. Even though they began living separately, they often visited each other for the sake of their child.

The meeting became a blessing in disguise, which eventually brought their relationship and family back together. In January 2012, the Daredevil actor poured out his frustration to the media of inaccurate reports and news about his married life.

From their romance, the two share daughter Leila George D'Onofrio who was born on March 20, 1992. Leila walked in the footsteps of her parents, and she is also an actress famous for "Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?," "Mortal Engines," and "The Kid."
