But while you should feel free to continue dreaming about a fantasy world where Deacon is real and you end up wooing him, in real life Charles is very much taken by his wife Patty Hanson.

So who is the lucky lady who won the handsome and talented hunk’s heart? Here are a few things to know about Patty.

1. She and Charles have been married since 1991. This couple is the real deal: they were married in November 1991, making their marriage 22 years strong.
