Ethan Hawk first met actress Uma Thurman on the set of the movie Gattaca in 1996. Soon the pair started dating, and in 1997, Thurman became pregnant with their first child.

On July 8, 1998, Hawke and his then-wife, Uma Thurman, welcomed a daughter and named her Maya Ray Hawke. A few years later, the couple welcomed their second child, a son named Levon Thurman-Hawke.
On the outside, It looked like Hawke was living his best life with a beautiful partner and two children, so the news of separation between Hawke and Thurman came as a suprise to many. What was even more scandalous was that rumors were going around that the Boyhood actor cheated Thurman with Ryan Shawhughes, a college student who was working as a nanny to the couple's children.
The divorce between Hawke and Thurman was messy and was finalized in August 2005, two years after separation.
Three years after the divorce, on 21 June 2008, Hawke married his alleged girlfriend and former nanny Ryan Shawhughes. The marriage poured even more fire to the rumors of Hawke cheated on Thurman with Ryan.

"My [first] marriage disintegrated due to many pressures, none of which were remotely connected to Ryan."
