Saffron Burrows Goes Public with Marriage to Wife Alison Balian

British actress Saffron Burrows is opening up for the first time about marrying her longtime girlfriend Alison Balian and the birth of their son two years ago.

The 42-year-old actress, who is best known for her roles in 1999′s Deep Blue Sea and 2008′s The Bank Job, was previously engaged to actor Alan Cumming. She got married in August 2013, two months after the US Supreme Court passed the Marriage Equality act.

“I always liked the idea of being with someone for a while and then getting married, but I didn’t know if I’d do it,” Saffron told The Guardian. “I’m quite a romantic, I probably thought I would do it.”

When asked what made her and Alison finally decide to marry, she said, “I don’t think I want to answer that, only because it’s so private, but I will say that we did elope. We hadn’t told anyone and then I called my mum and she said, ‘You haven’t eloped! You only elope when you’re young and in trouble!’”
