The two married in a low-key private ceremony held at a friends house on New Years Eve. While the couple once did consider having children, they ultimately chose not to.

Speaking about their decision not to become mothers, Lily told The Guardian in 2015: “Sometimes I think it would be nice to have somebody who looks like a replica of you in some fashion. But I don’t think it ever was an aspiration of mine.”

“In retrospect, we say every day, ‘I’m so glad we didn’t have any children.’ When I think of the world now, I don’t want to even deal with having to raise a child.”
