Last week we learned that Colin Firth and his wife of 21 years, Livia Giuggioli, were in stuck in the middle of some extramarital boyfriend drama of the highest degree. During a 2015/2016 hiatus in their marriage, Livia hooked up with an old childhood friend named Marco Brancaccia, who allegedly turned stalker once she decided to go back to Colin. It was the kind of affair that could turn a break into an official split, but not for Colin and Livia.
According to People, this story should be accompanied by some Ashford & Simpson, because they’re solid as a rock. A source says that Colin and Livia worked through the affair and subsequent stalker drama, and their marriage is all good.
“These two have a solid commitment, are on the same level, and worked through it. They got back together, and things are fine. They have a good marriage. It’s not uncommon for a marriage to go through periods where it seems stale, especially with children involved,” adds the source.
Colin and Livia have two sons together. As for their marriage getting stale, I’m sure everyone who would have chosen Mark Darcy over Daniel Cleaver just screamed “HOW EVEN THOUGH??“. Another source echoed the first by stressing that they have a “committed relationship.” Well obviously – if Colin didn’t immediately call it quits after opening WhatsApp and discovering sex pics from his wife’s side piece, I’d say he’s in it like a pair of cement shoes. Speaking of, you know that was probably something that was mentioned when they were working things out. “Don’t want to be a bother, but if we take another break, can I ask that you don’t pick someone who will message me after? Thanks in advance, love.”
