The pair were good friends at first, but their mutual attraction started to grow. Finally, in 1986, they made their relationship public. After two years, Tom Hanks got divorced from Lewes and married Wilson. The couple has two children together, Chester “Chet” Hanks and Truman Theodore Hanks. Wilson also became stepmother to Tom Hanks’ older kids, Colin and Elizabeth. The famous couple recently achieved a relationship milestone of spending 35 years together.
