A look into Neve Campbell's married life: The actress is a mother to two!
Regarded as one of the few scream queens, Neve Campbell has long been a staple in horror films. Thanks to her long portrayal of Sidney Prescot in the Hollywood slasher franchise Scream, Campbell has successfully carved a stellar career for herself. The actress recently announced her exit from the franchise over pay disputes; click here for details.
Neve Adrianne Campbell was born on October 3, 1973, in Guelph, Ontario. Her earlier credits include Canadian drama shows, The Kids in the Hall, Catwalk, Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Campbell started to draw attention outside of her native when she landed the role of Julia Salinger in the teen drama Party of Five and soon starred in her breakthrough Scream. Campbell's personal life is as thriving as her career; the actress is married with two kids.
Inside Neve Campbell's marriage!
Campbell's fan-favorite character Prescot had hard luck in love. Although her character did transform to become a wife and mother of two in the last Scream installment, to fans' dismay, the story arc wasn't thoroughly followed. Thankfully Campbell's onscreen life didn't translate into her real life. The Canadian actress is happily married with two sons.

Campbell is married to actor JJ Feild. But the actress has had her share of rotten luck in love. Before discovering a lifetime partner in Field, or so we presume, Neve was married to a co-star and another mystery man before that. You know what they say; third time's a charm. Campbell married Feild in March 2012, after a year of dating, and the team has displayed a pretty enviable relationship since then.
Campbell's husband and the father of her two sons, Feild, 44, is an English-American actor. Unlike his commercially successful wife, Feild holds most credits in theatre and television. Feild's credits include The Ruby in the Smoke, The Shadow in the North, Austenland, and Captain America: The First Avenger.

Campbell has consistently kept her personal life out of the spotlight; hence not much is known about the duo's relationship dynamic. Before Feild, the Scream fame was married to English actor John Light; who she met on the sets of the 2001 comedy-drama Investigating Sex. The pair started dating the same year in December and were married by May 2007.

Campbell and Light's marriage lasted three years, during which the pair didn't conceive any children, but the actress did move to Islington, north London, to spend her life with Light. Neve filed for divorce in June 2010, citing "irreconcilable differences," and even filed to block John from seeking any "spousal support." Campbell's first husband was Canadian actor Jeff Colt, with whom she was married from 1995 to 1998.

The Blind Horizon actress and her husband stepped into parenthood a little after their wedding. The couple welcomed their firstborn, Caspian, five months after their nuptials. And their second addition, Raynor, came via adoption six years later, in June 2018. The twosome has been just as tight-lipped about their kids, but Neve has shared some insights.

During her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in July 2018, Campbell revealed how she and Feild came about their firstborn's unique name. "When we were pregnant, we didn't find out whether he was a girl or boy, so we thought we'll bring five boy names and five girl names to the hospital, Neve shares.
She continues, "I was in labor for nine days. I know I should have gone to the hospital sooner; it was really silly. Anyway, we got to the hospital, and then, after the nine days, we'd forgotten the list, and it was the only name we could remember." Campbell shared. The actress also shared a similar anecdote on her adopted son's name, about how they planned to go with Bob and landed on Raynor.

"Sheer joy. So it's been a secret up until now as JJ, and I wanted to wait until it was official, but we adopted a beautiful baby boy five months ago," wrote Campbell alongside a vague picture of her family. The scream queen adds, "His name is Raynor, and we are madly in love with him."Earlier this year, Neve revealed that she and her husband have already told their 3-year-old son that he is adopted.
