In 2005, Stewart's wife, McShane was arrested for driving with a suspended license and police caught her at Central Park. Stewart's spokesman responded:

" It’s incredible. I’m so proud of her. Listen, I’ve always known my wife is a kinder and nicer person than I am. But to know that she is funnier and a better writer — I’m not going to lie to you — stings a little bit.

Stewart is definitely a supportive and a caring husband as he is always there for his wife at her bad times. Probably, this is the reason for their long lasting married life.
