The Truth About Stephen Amell's Marriage

It's rare to find a celebrity couple that makes it in Hollywood. But those that do prove fame and fortune can never come between true love. Just look at Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, and Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Actor Stephen Amell and his longtime wife Cassandra Jean Amell are also one of the lucky ones, having spent over a decade together. The two have even worked together on his show "Arrow."

"Well, my wife is playing Nora Fries in the crossover, which is very exciting," Stephen, who plays Oliver/Arrow, said during an appearance at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in 2018. "It was amazing being on set with my wife and I'm very proud of her." It turns out, Cassandra, who is a former model, was also one of the reasons he decided to leave the hit CW show for good after eight seasons, since he wanted to spend more time with his family (per The Netline).

Stephen and Cassandra got married twice

According to Us Weekly, Stephen Amell met Cassandra Amell in 2011 after his 2010 divorce from his first wife, Carolyn Lawrence. The two kept their relationship a on the down-low before secretly tying the knot during a Caribbean vacation on Christmas Day 2012. At the time, Just Jared reported the "ceremony was officiated by a good friend of the couple" and that they later traveled to St. Bart's for New Year's celebrations.

Stephen and Cassandra exchanged vows for a second time in May 2013 in front of family and friends in New Orleans, per Us Weekly. One month later, the couple confirmed they were expecting their first child — a baby girl. "I'm excited — no, I'm not excited, I'm very excited!" Stephen told ET Canada (per the Los Angeles Times). "I'm sure that nervous energy will accompany that eventually but only in a positive way." They welcomed their daughter, Maverick, later that year.

Over the years, Stephen and Cassandra have shared many photos of their child and all the family adventures they've been on. 

The couple was involved in an altercation on a flight

In June, Stephen and Cassandra Amell made headlines after Page Six reported the "Arrow" star was removed from his flight after allegedly getting into an heated fight with his wife. Sources told the outlet a "flight attendant asked him multiple times to calm down" and claimed that Stephen appeared drunk. 

The actor later responded to the report, tweeting, "My wife and I got into an argument Monday afternoon on a Delta flight from Austin to LA. I was asked to lower my voice and I did. Approximately 10 minutes later I was asked to leave the flight. And I did so immediately. I was not forcibly removed." He went on to say, "I let my emotions get the better of me" and that he "rebooked his flight" and "traveled home without any further issue."

Despite the couple's public altercation, they have put on a united front. Not only have they both since shared lovey-dovey posts via Instagram, but in August, Cassandra joined Stephen on the red carpet for the premiere of his new Starz series "Heels," where they packed on the PDA.
