Rebecca and Richard originally met on the set of Aussie TV movie Dogwoman in 1999 – but their story goes back much further than that.

“In walks this beautiful, tall New Zealander who happened to live on the same street as me when I was five,” the Back To The Rafters actress told Woman’s Day last month about her and Richard’s first meeting.

Two years later, the couple tied the knot on a beach in Thailand before welcoming their son, Zachary, three years after that.

 “I can’t imagine growing old with anyone else,” Rebecca told the publication.
