She said, 'I think I should have said that to you on our first date, 'This is too much to fix' but I wanted to fix it anyway, you were like those remodel shows where they're like, "They can't possibly make this into a beautiful house, it's falling apart" but yet, they do. And that was you, you were falling apart but I saw the good bone structure. I saw the potential. There was a loving relationship to be fostered with this beautiful soul.'

Robbie replied with a simple, 'Thank you' for his wife.
