"Instead we are being spat upon by complete strangers while walking together on the street, cursed at by a waiter in a restaurant who had read bogus media reports about our wedding, and told by complete strangers that we should get our divorce papers ready since our marriage clearly isn't going to last,"

They also welcomed their second child, a son, Zephyr Emerson Parker, born on December 1, 2014. Lenas announced the news the baby's arrival via her Instagram post sharing a snap of herself cradling the newborn.

“It literally changes your relationship with society, with each other. It probably interferes with productivity in weird ways. God only knows what it’s doing to our children’s brains,”
