Alan Ruck and Mireille Enos Age DifferenceAny­one who’s seen the movie Fer­ris Bueller’s Day Off will prob­a­bly rec­og­nize Alan Ruck, who played Bueller’s best friend, Cameron. Fast for­ward 28 years and Ruck has become a well-known face in Hol­ly­wood, hav­ing made more than 100 appear­ances in movies, the­atre, and tele­vi­sion, includ­ing a lead role in the Emmy-winning series Spin City.

Unlike many other actors, Alan Ruck has man­aged to keep his per­sonal life out of the spot­light, per­haps because he’s man­aged to steer clear of drama and con­tro­versy. In 1984, Ruck mar­ried his first wife, Clau­dia Ste­fany. They had two kids together, one son and one daugh­ter, before end­ing their mar­riage in 2005.

That same year, Alan Ruck met the younger woman who would even­tu­ally become his sec­ond wife, actress Mireille Enos. The celebrity cou­ple starred along­side each other in a Broad­way pro­duc­tion, and despite their 19-year age dif­fer­ence, Ruck and Mireille Enos instantly hit it off. He report­edly called her every night when she spent a few months in Lon­don, and by 2008, the celebrity cou­ple was mar­ried, Two years later, they wel­comed their daugh­ter, Ves­per Vivienne.

In Feb­ru­ary 2014, the celebrity cou­ple announced that Mireille Enos was preg­nant with their sec­ond child. “We are so excited and feel so unbe­liev­ably lucky to have this lit­tle per­son com­ing to us,” they said in a state­ment to Peo­ple mag­a­zine. The baby is due some time in the sum­mer of 2014.

Here’s another celebrity cou­ple who proves that an age dif­fer­ence makes no dif­fer­ence when you find some­one who really makes you happy.
