Family Life – Wife & Kids
Just before she made her debut appearance in a Hollywood production, Sunrise Coigney and Mark Ruffalo got married in the year 2000. We could not possibly say how long they have been together but the popular belief is the couple met not in Hollywood, but on the street, during a random day. They got married on the 11th of June, 2000.
Known to be a pillar of support for her husband, her support goes as far back as Mark’s days before he became a movie star – when he was a struggling actor working as a bartender. At the time, Mark Ruffalo considered giving up his dreams to become an actor but his wife kept believing in him and encouraging him to stay in the game.
Needless to say, it worked out for Mark Ruffalo and she has continued to be a valued asset in the actor’s life, including being the mother to his three children.
They had their first child, a daughter, Keen, about a year after they got married and the second, Bella Noche, was born in 2005. The couple gave birth to their third child in 2007. They have been one of Hollywood’s model couples and currently live a scandal-free life in their home in New York, where they run a farm.
