Scott Bakula is sharing a marital bliss with his wife Chelsea Field after they tied the knot in 2009. The wedding came after the pair shared romance for 15 years since they began dating. The duo shares two children, Wil Botfield, who is at the age of 24 and Owen Barrett, who is at the age of 20.

The 64 years old actor has been able to keep his family behind the curtains, and the reason might because he has been very busy with his works. 

First Failed Marriage

Talking about his now personal life, it has a lot to do with his unsuccessful first marriage. Wondering how?

Well, the Missouri native was previously married to Krista Neumann in 1981. The two share two children, a daughter Chelsy and a son named Cody. But sadly, at that point in Scott’s life, he was not able to give as much time as he wanted for his kids and wife.

The couple finalized their divorce back in 1995 after being together for almost 14 years since they tied the wedding knot in 1981.

After sharing two kids and over a decade a relationship the couple parted ways which happened to be a big lesson for him. He later made sure to put in efforts with his current wife. 

With the beginning of his second marriage, Scott put in efforts to make the relationship between him and his wife work while keeping his professional life at a distance. Adding to it, he put in all the efforts only to make his marriage life "happy and successful."

In the following contract for Star Trek: Enterprise, Scott Bakula signed an agreement with the clause, which said the filming last till 6 pm every Wednesday. The reason for doing that was to take time from his work, to have dinner with his wife and children.

As of now, Scott Bakula is making all the effort to make things up for his daughter and sons. Meanwhile, he is also working on his marriage to make it successful and that he has been doing spectacularly.

But here’s the other thing, though he has a happy married life, people often speculate him to be gay; however, that seems to be untrue, given the circumstances.

The chances of the actor being secretly gay are brushed off as soon as the paparazzi take a look at Scott's happily married life. The actor, who is married to wife Chelsea for nearly a decade now, often flaunts his love for her on social media and public events.

The Hollywood veteran attended the Screen Actor Guild (SAG) awards alongside his wife Chelsea, who looked gorgeous in a black full-sleeved gown. Their presence together was enough to show the haters that the couple's marriage has aged fine like wine.

Works Alongside His Wife

Well, as Scott was putting in an effort for his second marriage to work, he would not miss out any chance he would get to do so. While doing so, he even got a chance to feature alongside his wife in his most-watched television series, NCIS: New Orleans.

The show's star is much glad that he gets to spend much time with his wife apart from their busy daily schedules. His wife Chelsea previously appeared in 4 of the episodes as his ex-girlfriend, Rita Devereaux.

Well, it turns out Chelsea's guest role was extended in the fifth season due to her performance and the couple's onscreen chemistry. In an interview with in February 2018, Scott stated, 

"Yes, and I can announce that she's going to be back this year also. We love to work together and we don't always get a chance to see that much of each other now with the show filming in New Orleans and our home and children being in Los Angeles. So when she works on the show, she leaves our son and our house and comes to New Orleans to be with me, which is fun for both of us."

Scott, who love working beside his wife, revealed that it would be their little getaway as they would leave their kids at home in Los Angeles while they both work in New Orleans for the time being.

Indeed, it would be a little getaway for the couple as they hardly get to spend any time together as they are always caught up with kids as work. While moving along the episodes, Scott has hinted that he might be leaving the show as the show ended in a cliffhanger, in which Scott is seen battling unconsciously to live after an assassin shot his character.
