Is Johnny Vegas Married to Maia Dunphy?
Dunphy and Vegas tied the knot in April 2011 in Dunphy's mother's hometown of Seville, Spain.
The love between the couple blossomed on the sets of Podge & Rodge.
However, they had to maintain a long-distance relationship after their marriage as Vegas lived in London and Dunphy in Ireland.
However, after marrying for four years, the couple got pregnant with a child.
In January 2015, Dunphy shared a picture of her sonography and announced they expected to have a baby. They soon welcomed their son.
On May 14, 2018, Maia announced her separation from Vegas through Twitter.
She wrote, "It is with a heavy heart that we want to let you know we separated some time ago last year."
She said she wanted to clear things out and tell the people that they have parted ways for good.
However, they continue to support each other, and there is "no acrimony, no story, and no one else involved."
The producer requested privacy and asked her fans to consider the two children involved. They are concerned about the welfare of the children more than anything.
Does Johnny Vegas Share a Son with His First Wife?
Vegas and his first partner met at a pub in West London when his first spouse struggled as an aspiring interior designer. Later they developed feelings for each other and got into a relationship.
He married his first partner, Donnelly, in 2002 and even sold his wedding pictures to Viz Magazine. The couple shares a son.
But, they couldn't be together as husband and wife for long as they divorced in 2008 after living separately for two years.
In addition, there were rumors about Vegas allegedly cheating on his spouse with someone else.
Donnelly confirmed with Mail Online that she checked Vegas' phone one night in 2004 and found messages of him and another woman named Ursula.
She added Vegas stormed out of the house when she had questioned him regarding his actions.

Donnelly said he was nice when they first met, and she adored him as a friend, but when they got into the marriage, she mentioned he was an "absolutely hopeless husband."
But, as love finds its way, Vegas' first wife forgave him for the Ursula incident because she thought it could affect their son.
After two years, their marriage, the on-again, off-again relationship between the couple, crumbled down, and the gap between them became unbridgeable.
Although Vegas is not married to anybody, he still looks after his children and loves them very much.
