Anne Heche and James Tupper have been building a life together ever since falling for each other in 2006 on the set of the TV series Men in Trees, but don't expect to hear wedding bells any time soon. "We are eternally engaged," James, who now stars on the NBC medical drama Mercy, tells Life & Style. "That means I have to give her a new ring every year. I'm not saying we'll never [officially] get engaged, but she likes getting a ring every year."
The couple are raising two kids: Homer, Anne's 7-year-old from her first marriage, and their son, Atlas, whom they welcomed in March. Is another on the way? "I'd love to have a girl," says James. "I'm trying to talk Anne into it, but like every actress, she says, 'I don't want to get fat again. I have a career!'"
