Three times, the subject of marriage came up. The first time he was like, ‘I don’t have the ring, but one day maybe we’ll get married. It was weird… I was like, ‘Am I supposed to say yes to that?'” The second attempt fared no better. 

“It was this beautiful [ring], his grandmother’s ring. He was like, “I’m not asking… I mean, we can get married at some point.’ It kept being put off.”

And despite the successful third-time proposal, Kemper still remained unimpressed

“He asked me as I was leaving for New York from Los Angeles. He asked me to marry him [and] I got on a plane and left for a week. Again, I love him, but that was not a proposal.”

The pair tied the knot on the 7th of July, 2012, and have two sons, James and Matthew, born in 2016 and 2019.
