Caitlin, an actress, has previously had roles in The Vampire Diaries, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and NCIS: Los Angeles. She worked with John on a short film together, Ingenueish, and at the time, spoke about how supportive her boyfriend is. "I'm very happy. He's super supportive, and I really couldn't ask for anything better," she said. "We like to keep our lives private because we've seen what relationships in the public eye can be like and we just like our privacy. We don't want the commentary from the masses about what our relationship is or should be. We're very happy together and we hope to be so for a long time."
The couple started dating last year
John was previously married to actress and model Rebecca Romijn. The pair met when Rebecca modelled at a Victoria's Secret fashion show in 1994. John popped the question on Christmas Eve 1997 and they married the following year at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. Six years later, the couple announced their intention to divorce, which was finalised in March 2005.
