With his piercing blue eyes, scruffy beard, and long list of movie roles, it's safe to say that Armie Hammer is one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. The hunky star earned his first SAG Award nomination in 2011 for his work in J. Edgar, but his Golden Globe-nominated role in Call Me by Your Name has thrust him into the spotlight.
Unfortunately for us, the 31-year-old is off the market, having wed 35-year-old actress and TV personality Elizabeth Chambers on May 22, 2010. The duo, who have two children together, met in 2006 through mutual friends, and things were strictly platonic at the time, as Elizabeth had a boyfriend — though Armie fell for her right away. "I do believe in love at first sight. When I first met my wife, I remember everything she was wearing the first time I saw her," he told Momtastic, adding, when he laid eyes on her, "I felt like I’d been knocked over."
The pair remained close as they hung out in the same circle, but eventually, Armie had to confess his feelings for her. “Our friendship continued to grow and grow until one day when I was like, ‘I can’t be friends with you anymore. You’ve got to break up with your boyfriend, and we’ve got to start dating,'" he shared. Needless to say, his plea worked!
"When we finally got together, Armie really wanted to get married," Elizabeth echoed to Town & Country. "He sat me down and said, 'Look, we don't have to do this. We could just go our own ways, and then one day you'll be 40 and divorced and we'll run into each other, and we'll laugh and go out to dinner and have this same connection, and we'll wonder why we wasted all of that time. Or we could just do it now and enjoy the ride.'"

Babies, bunnies and brunch. Peter Rabbit party to celebrate our angel baby boy who turns ✨O N E✨ today! Grateful for every moment and for my amazing, sister, @chambiebaby who came right off a flight from New Zealand and worked with me until 4am the night before. Ford Hammer, you are loved. 🐇🥕🎂
That ride eventually led to parenthood for the lovebirds, as they welcomed three-year-old daughter Harper in 2014 and one-year-old son Ford last year. "It's great," he gushed of fatherhood to E! News. "It's the best thing in the world. It's sort of a whole new perspective. I don't even want to sleep anymore. I don't want to miss a smile. It's the best. I love it." Could this man get any cuter?
