Tom Ellis Gay, Wife, Divorce, Children

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 latest girlfriend/fiancee.

Cheating Incident Leads Married Life To Divorce

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 both of them 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, whereas, Tom had a kid from his previous relationship with actress Estelle Morgan, namely Nora Ellis.

While their romance lasted, the couple went to have another daughter Marnie Mae Ellis, who was born in August 2012. The siblings: Florence and Marnie are close to each other and often enjoy their play time together; however, the sisters' relationship with their half-sibling Nora is not disclosed. 

Although the duo's married life looked smooth in 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 40 - also moved on in his life and commenced romance with another actress.

Tom Ellis, who played the role of an undercover gay man in FOX's TV show Lucifer, initiated a romance with American screenwriter, Meaghan Oppenheimer, in 2015. The pair commenced their relationship a year after Tom's divorce to former wife, Tamzin.
