They were first linked as a couple in early 2012, and in late December 2013 Life & Style reported that they were engaged. An insider told L&S that Robin has been "talking all about her upcoming wedding and how excited she is for it."
People got confirmation from Robin's rep in early January 2014. This will be Ben's first marriage and Robin's third. She was previously married to Sean Penn, 53, and they have two children together, ages 22 and 20. Robin and Sean had a tumultuous relationship that finally ended in divorce in July 2010. Robin was also married to her Santa Barbara co-star Dane Witherspoon from 1986-1988.
Robin and Ben have a 14-year age gap, but that's nothing by Hollywood standards — especially when the genders are reversed. Back in 2011, Sean got tongues wagging when he started seeing Scarlett Johansson, who is about 24 years younger.
Anyway, congrats to Robin and Ben! Have fun storming the castle.
