James, 36, best known among fans for starring in The Divergent trilogy, and Kearney, 32, are believed to have been blessed with their first baby, after the two tied the knot three years back.

James recently confirmed his exit from the drama Sanditon and expressed his love for the character, Sidney, he had played. "Although I relished playing Sidney, for me, I’ve always maintained that his journey concluded as I wanted it to.The broken fairy-tale like ending between Charlotte and Sidney is different, unique and so interesting to me and I wish the cast and crew of Sanditon every success with future series," he said in a statement. 

Apart from the Divergent franchise, Theo James is known for starring in the Underworld franchise films and will next be featured in a voice role in The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, including portraying the character Henry Ossory in Mr. Malcolm's List, an upcoming period drama based on the novel of the same name.
