Vanya Seager’s First Marriage and Daughter Lara
The former actress was married to her first husband Joey Martyn-Martin. She used to work as a model at that time while her then-husband was a property developer.
They together have a daughter named Lara born in the 1990s.
Her husband was 27 years older than her which might have created differences between them, so, the couple split after some years of marriage.
Her second husband Robson Green
Vanya Seager met her second husband Robson Green while working as an assistant for Simon Cowell in 1995. Simon was working as a producer for Robson and Jerome Flynn’s version of hit Unchained Melody.
They fell for each other while working together and soon started dating.
After dating for around 5 years, they welcomed a son named Taylor Seager-Green on April 29, 2000.
Vanya and Robson married on 10 March 2001 at Cliveden House in Buckinghamshire. Their son was around 1 year old at the time of their wedding.
On October 30, 2011, the pair revealed that their marriage has ended after a decade. Later it was reported that Green was having an extra-marital relationship with the vicar’s wife.
Prior to marrying Seager, Green was wedded to occupational therapist Alison Ogilvie. The two knew each other through Green’s close friend and television director Andrew Gunn.
They tied the knot on 22 June 1991 but later separated after 8 years of marital relationship.
Divorced Finalised in 40 Seconds
Vanya’s marriage to Green ended in just 40 seconds since the court did not take a long time as the couple hadn’t lived together for more than two years.
Judge Caroline Reid announced the decision of the court in 40 seconds in October 2013. The couple parted ways in October 2011 and did not live together after that.
They even didn’t talk to each other but had shared some texts for the sake of their son Taylor.
Vanya was the one to end the marriage as she mentioned that she found it intolerable to live with him.
‘I haven’t talked to her since we parted. We are in touch. But we don’t speak. We communicate by text. It’s nice and safe that way. And that’s what Taylor needs. I don’t know why Vanya decided it’s better not to speak but, that’s what she has decided. It wasn’t my decision. It wasn’t me that wanted to do that. She decided. Frankly, I’m not sure how she perceives me now.’
Robson also added that it was his fault that caused the divorce but said that he has always been a good father to his son
‘Vanya and I just grew apart. I don’t blame it on the career. It’s just we were different and we didn’t develop together. My mind went in one direction, hers in the other. OK, maybe it is being away all the time, maybe it’s not being the greatest husband in the world, but by default that does not make you a bad father. But I try to keep my side of the street clean and I am a good dad.’
