Last year (10), the Buffy The Vampire Slayer star confessed to cheating on his longterm partner, former Playboy Playmate Jaime Bergman, with an unnamed woman, who was later revealed to be Tiger Woods’ alleged mistress Rachel Uchitel.
Boreanaz and Bergman, who have two children together, enrolled in marriage counselling following the actor’s admission and fought to keep the relationship intact, and the star now reveals they are closer than ever.
He tells TV Week, “(The affair turned into) a bonding experience, in the long run… In a sacred ground like marriage, you find yourself out of it at certain times for reasons unknown that can be destructive. There could be a demon that kind of comes out and overtakes you… Do I believe in giving up? No, I don’t. I’m a fighter. I’m a lover.”
The couple married in 2001, and is parents to son Jaden, nine, and daughter Bella, two.
