The two were together for over nine years before marrying – it’s widely believed that they were introduced by a mutual friend at a party as he believed the two would be perfect for each other.
They don’t have children, and many of ImDontai’s fans believe this to be because they both want to focus on their careers at the moment, however, others claim that they might not want to have children at all.
