Simon Baker and his wife Rebecca Rigg have separated after 29 years of marriage. The two quietly split last April, but in a joint statement, they said they remain close friends and their three children will always be the most important focus of their lives.
The former Mentalist star and Rebecca Rigg share three children: Stella, 27, Claude, 22, and Harry, 19. Simon Baker, 51, and Rigg, 53, met in the early 1990s and went on to star in the Australian soap opera, E Street.
Back in 2018, the actor previously opened up about his marriage, explaining why he and Rebecca Rigg never celebrated their wedding anniversary. He explained they just haven't been big on it, as he considers anniversaries an odd thing.
He also said he thinks everyone puts too much pressure on it, but it's not like that with him and Rebecca, they are a team. Most of the time, like 99 percent of the time, he admitted they are really great friends, so he doesn't feel the need to mark it with great things.
Instead, Simon Baker said they prioritized keeping things spontaneous. When they put too much pressure on something, everything gets a little clipped and they don't feel like themselves, and he just thinks the most important thing in their relationship is that they are able to be themselves. Looks like it didn't last.
