Read on to know everything about Kim and Hal’s relationship and more about her personal life.
When Did Kim And Hal Tie The Knot?
Kim Wilde married Hal Fowler in 1996. When they were both in The Who’s Tommy, a Rock ‘n’ Roll musical, they got to know each other. Hal is an actor and writer who is best known for appearing in the movies Dracula (2013) and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2018).
Kim has said in interviews that she was immediately drawn to her co-star and now her ex-husband because he “seemed absolutely unimpressed and uninterested” in her pop star status, which is one of the reasons they hit it off (as well as being “very cool” and wearing a “classy leather satchel”).
In 1996, after dating for only six months, the couple tied the knot. She has previously stated that her marriage is the greatest blessing in her life.
Wilde married her Tommy co-star Hal Fowler on September 1, 1996, and said she wanted to have kids as soon as possible. On January 3, 1998, she had a baby boy named Harry Tristan. Rose Elizabeth was born on January 13, 2000. And now the pair announced their divorce.
