Fans were shocked when Hollywood couple Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor unexpectedly announced their split after 17 years of marriage. Not only had they been together for what seemed like forever, but they’d also worked together on several successful movies, raised two children together and managed to maintain a fairly private relationship while in the limelight. We don’t know much about what happened because they’ve kept pretty tight lipped on the whole separation, but it’s obvious these two shared a wonderful marriage and fans are sad to see another great couple bite the dust. We’re not ready to let go of these two just yet, so here’s a look at 10 things you probably didn’t know about their relationship!

10. How They Met

They first met back in 1999 on the set of a pilot for the show Heat Vision and Jack which never got picked up. Up until their recent split, these two had been together for 17 years! They got married in 2000 shortly after they first met and now share two kids, Ella and Quinlin. They continued to work together on films like Zoolander and Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story,  and Tropic Thunder.



9. The Moment Ben Fell In Love

From the way Stiller describes things, he fell for Christine pretty quickly, so fast that it caught him off guard! “[Christine and my] relationship was a gradual thing that happened over a quick period of time, maybe seven or eight months. We just started hanging out with each other and it developed into, ‘Wow, this feels great. I really like this person. I think I love this person. I really do — I love this person.’ It hit me out of the blue,” he said in an interview with Parade.
