Matt and Angela tied the knot back in 2013 and the couple share four-year-old daughter MacKenlee Faire.

In an interview with People Magazine, the pair revealed the origins of their daughter’s unique moniker.

“MacKenlee is a play on a family name,” Angela said at the time. “Matt’s middle name is MacKendree (also a family name). Faire is after my maternal grandmother.”

“The moment our daughter was lifted up and we laid eyes on her was incredible,” the “Timeless” actor told the publication in a separate interview at the time of her birth. “As a dad, some of my most special moments so far are when she just lays her little body on my chest and falls asleep.”

“I just thought to myself, she’s perfect,” Matt concluded.
