10. Shared Morals

In addition to managing a great work schedule, they also share the same morals and values. These two have gotten very good at being a celebrity couple without actually seeming like it. “We just get along. I think we want the same things for our children, want the same things out of our relationship, and we have a similar work ethic, you know, that we both love our work and we love to be challenged.”

9. Becoming Adoptive Parents

In an interview with Good Housekeeping in 2007, Pfeiffer opened up about what it was like adopting her daughter only two months after she started dating Kelley. “The adoption process was already in motion when he and I met. So when she came, he and I had only been together for about two months. So we had this child with us right away, and most people don’t have that. But I really got to see him in a situation that certainly would separate the boys from the men. Obviously, he really rose to the occasion. And, you know, we were both adults. It’s not like we were kids anymore, and we were both at the age where we were ready to start a family. So we both got to see each other as parents before we progressed in our relationship together, and in a strange way, it took the pressure off us, as a couple,” she said.
