Well, sources revealed PEOPLE that the couple, who have been dating since 2001, had split before in the past as they have had troubles getting along for many years before.

Similarly, another source claims that the duo stayed together for this long only because of their daughter.

According to The Daily Mail, an insider affirmed that Helen had been suspicious for a long time about her boyfriend that something was going wrong with their relationship. However, Matthew has always been insisting her to believe that he hasn't betrayed her.

As of past, the actress began living a low-profile life after she started dating Carnahan and welcomed Makena. She has also spoken about this to PEOPLE back in 2008, where she divulged how her priorities in life changed after becoming a mother. She told:

“My family came to life. I had my daughter and chose to spend time with her. It’s the greatest pleasure I’ve ever known.”

Hunt was previously married to an American actor, Hank Azaria, whom we probably know from the animated television sitcom, The Simpsons. They got divorced in 1999 after staying in a relationship for five years, which was indeed two years after their marriage.

Carnahan, who is known for his projects like Don Cheadle's House of Lies (2012), Courteney Cox's Dirt (2007) and Trinity (1998), has a son, Emmett Carnahan from his previous relationship(now twenty years old).

Although he hasn't opened up about the past love life, he still parents his son as a single parent.

As of now, we need to look forward to other revelations of their break up from both Matthew's and Helens's end.
