By December, the rumors were confirmed: Shia and Margaret were snapped making out at LAX Airport on Dec. 19 (see photos here) and on Dec. 22, they were photographed kissing again during a hike in Pasadena (see those pics here).

During the coronavirus pandemic, Patrick and Linda — who were friendly early in their careers — reconnected in a group chat with mutual friends. Eventually, they started talking to just each other. "I loaded up my car and drove 20 hours and ended up on her doorstep just to see if it was real. We haven't been apart since," he said. "I feel, quite honestly, that it is keeping with the desires of my wife, the fact that we are intended to be happy. So when it's offered, think about it, do whatever you do, but don't let it pass you up if it's the right thing."
