She is married to US lawyer Nate Greenwald, the father of her daughter Romy.
The relationship was confirmed shortly after her move to the United States and following her 2016 separation from Gary Lineker after nine years of marriage.
Tom Cruise’s rants came after five crew members on the Mission: Impossible set ‘quit after he launched into a second furious rant’.
The actor, 58, is said to have given staff an X-rated dressing down after he caught them breaking UK Covid rules at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Hertfordshire, on Tuesday.

Now a source has claimed after news of his first outburst was made public, there has been ‘more anger’ at the already ‘tense’ production.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Tension has been building for months and this was the final straw. Since it became public there has been more anger and several staff have walked.
‘But Tom just can’t take any more after all the lengths they have gone to just to keep filming at all. He’s upset others aren’t taking it as seriously as him.’
They added it is Tom who feels responsible for the production after putting so much time and money into ensuring precautions are in place so the team can film.
MailOnline has contacted Tom Cruise’s representatives for a comment.
It was previously reported that the Hollywood star scolded workers who flouted social distancing rules while filming at Warner Bros. Studios.
Invoking the no-nonsense attitude of his character, Ethan Hunt, the actor is said to have told them ‘If I see you doing it again, you’re f***ing gone’.
The paper said the dressing down was recorded on an audio tape, in which he is heard to add: ‘And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it — and you too and you too.
‘And you, don’t you ever f***ing do it again. We are not shutting this f***ing movie down.’
The American actor was reportedly angered after seeing the pair stood less than a metre away from each other at a computer screen.
In October, the Top Gun star held crisis talks with director Christopher McQuarrie after 12 people on set reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.
Health chiefs were said to be tracing the contacts of those who tested positive after filming was suspended, dashing hopes it was an isolated case.
