The 39-year-old Garth came to fame in the 1990s TV series "Beverly Hills, 90210" and appeared in the 2008-10 sequel. The 38-year-old Facinelli is a co-star in the "Twilight" movie franchise. The couple married in January 2001.

Garth competed in "Dancing With the Stars" in 2007, with Facinelli applauding her from the audience.
