Stephen has previously spoken of his struggles to find love during his time in Hollywood, reports Mail Online .
He said: “Aside from the fact that she’s great, hitting the age of 40, there’s something very pleasing about not having the endless concern about filling that part of your life. That’s a very lonely life, the life of a single person.
“There’s a lot of nights where you’re watching those DVDs on your own. [When I was single] I was spending a fortune.
“You’re going out, you’re eating three-course meals. It’s expensive, you’re overweight, you’re drinking a lot.”
