The British actor, Tom Ellis - who is known for his performances in Miranda, Lucifer, and Buffalo Soldiers - has often been criticized for his casual approach towards relationships.

After he abandoned his pregnant girlfriend to get married to another woman, he did the same to his wife when he found someone younger and more beautiful than her. 

However, his actions backfired as Tom got dumped by his now-former wife. But, the actor has realized his mistakes and may not repeat them as he is having a great time with his girlfriend-turned-wife.

Ex-Girlfriend, Estelle Morgan

Around 2001, Ellis found love with his classmate Estelle Morgan. However, at that time, she was dating someone else. 

After Morgan's relationship fell apart, Ellis was quick enough to ask her out on a date. They went on a holiday in Portugal, and the couple was head-over-heels. 

They had even decided to take a step ahead and get married in 2003; however, life had different plans for them. 

In 2004, Morgan was pregnant with their daughter Nora Ellis, but the couple's relationship ended shortly before their child's birth.

Tom Ellis Ex-Wife

Tom was married to his wife, Tamzin Outhwaite, for a long time before his marriage crumbled in the blink of an eye.

They had known each other since drama school but hadn't been formally introduced. The couple first spoke to each other when they were hanging out at the bar in Royal Court Theatre, London.

The duo soon hit it off and started dating, finally getting married on 11 June 2006.

Two years following their marriage, Tom and his wife became parents to a baby daughter named Florence Elsie Ellis in June 2008. The child was the first for Tamzin. 

While their romance lasted, the couple went to have another daughter Marnie Mae Ellis, born in August 2012. The siblings: Florence and Marnie are close to each other and often enjoy their playtime together; however, the sisters' relationship with their half-sibling Nora is not disclosed. But it is for sure that Ellis has not forgotten his responsibilities towards his daughter Nora Ellis.

Although the duo's married life looked smooth on the surface, underneath, it was crumbling. After Tamzin found out that her husband was cheating on her with actress Emilie de Ravin, she immediately dumped him and parted ways from him in August 2013.

She filed for divorce a month later, and the former life partners officialized their divorce in April 2014.

Post the divorce, Tamzin started dating actor Tom Child, while her former husband Tom - aged 42 - also moved on in his life and commenced romance with another actress.

Married To Wife, Meaghan Oppenheimer

Tom Ellis initiated a romance with American screenwriter Meaghan Oppenheimer in 2015. The pair commenced their relationship a year after Tom's divorce to his former wife, Tamzin.

While they were dating, the couple enjoyed exotic vacations before finally deciding to spend the rest of their lives together.

And after a couple of months, Ellis finally married his partner Meaghan Oppenheimer in June. 

They had a lavishing ceremony at the Grassini Family Winery located in Santa Ynez Calley, California. 

Is Tom Ellis Gay?

Well, this is a question that has been asked on the internet for a long time now, maybe because Ellis is part of the TV series Lucifer that sometimes showcases LGBT scenarios.  Or else, there are no any alternatives that suggest Ellis is gay.

He has been in relationships with women and even has children. His sexual orientation cannot be far better proved than this. But just to answer the question, Tom Ellis is not gay.
