Guy Ritchie's Personal Life
Ritchie married the American pop sensation Madonna on 22nd December 2000. The ceremony was held in private at the Skibo Castle in Scotland. The couple was blessed with a son named Rocco John Ritchie who was born on 11th August 2000 in Los Angeles.
The couple later adopted a baby boy in 2006 named David Ritchie who was born on 24th September 2005. However, the bond between the pair did not last long. Madonna eventually filed for divorce from Ritchie in October 2008, citing irreconcilable differences. The pair separated in 2008.
On 15th December 2008, Madonna's spokeswoman announced the singer had agreed to a divorce settlement with Ritchie, the terms of which grant him between $64 million to $77 million. The figure included the value of the couple's London pub and Wiltshire estate in England.
Meanwhile, the former couple issued a joint statement calling the previous announcement to be "misleading and inaccurate" as they claimed the settlement has remained private.
The divorce was made official by District Judge Reid at the clinical Principal Registry of the Family Division in High Holborn, London. The pair decided to co-parent the kids as they divided the children's time between Ritchie's London home and Madonna's in New York.
Post Ritchie's split with Madonna, he began dating model Jacqui Ainsley since 2010. On 30th July 2015, the new couple tied the knot and thus began their conjugal life.
The couple shares three children, son Rafael Ritchie (born on 5th September 2011), daughter Rivka Ritchie (born on 29th November 2012), and son Levi Ritchie (born on 8th June 2014).
Guy Ritchie has a black belt in both Shotokan, Judo, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He had started training in Shotokan karate at the age of seven at the Budokwai in London.
