The couple share two children, Sean and Ty, with Ty becoming a screenwriter in Hollywood. Chatting about their two sons, he continued: "Separate from anything as an actor, you hopefully take pride in who people are individually away from any camera just as people, as citizens. And both our boys have done well and hopefully made smart choices and are doing well daily, you know? Day by day, we have a lot of reasons to be proud of both of them. This is part of that."

Pam, 71, is also an actress, and is perhaps best known for starring in My Sister Sam, Mork and Mindy and Life… and Stuff. She has, of course, also starred in NCIS, where she played Marcie Warren for seven episodes back in 2021.

"There were helicopters hovering over her parents' house. People were camped out on their front lawn. Granted, we're not talking about Springsteen here, but if we choose a big church, everyone will find out about it. All of a sudden we'll have Entertainment Tonight out there with microphones."
