The 39-year-old expectant mom and her 48-year-old beau had never confirmed their own relationship, but they sparked romance rumors earlier this year after they were photographed shopping together. Guy split from his wife of 18 years, Kate Mestitz, in January 2015.

Guy has made disparaging comments about becoming a dad in the past, saying he doesn't "need" kids and he doesn't think he'd be "good for babies."
"I'd be on and off. I think they need more consistent affection than I would be able to give," he told The Guardian in a 2007 interview. He addressed his change of heart on Twitter.
