Fiona Bruce married Nigel Sharrocks in 1994, after meeting him at advertising agency Boase Massimo Pollitt. He was company director while she was working there. The couple have two children called Sam, who was born in January 1998 and Mia, who was born in 2001.
Fiona and Nigel have now been together more than two decades, having walked down the aisle in Islington in July 1994.
The pair own homes together in Belsize park in London and Sydenham, Oxfordshire.
But despite their enduring romance, the pair’s relationship has always remained private.
But the mum of two has received plenty of backlash over her parenting.
Fiona has often spoke about juggling her time between family life and her career.
She received criticism for going back to work for Crimewatch just 16 days after giving birth to Mia.
But she said in an interview she would watch the clock while working for Panorama when her children were young.
She said to the Telegraph: “There was always a point at which I thought, ‘If I leave now, I can make bathtime’, and I’d get really irritable and try to rattle through stuff.”
