Bo Derek is completely happy with the status of her nearly 20-year relationship with John Corbett.
Derek has been with the 59-year-old “Sex and the City” star for 18 years and the duo don’t see marriage in their future.
“I think when you’re beginning a young family and you’re going to have children and set up this new family tree branch, it’s obviously a wonderful commitment and it’s meaningful,” she told Fox News. “But for us in our lives, it hasn’t been yet.”
Together since 2002, the actress disclosed there is no special secret to how they’ve made it work.
“He makes me laugh all the time. He’s full of life, full of joy,” Derek shared. “I became attracted to him and I still am. We take things day by day and I think we are still there. We’re starting to get a little more settled.”
Derek was previously married to actor-director John Derek for over 20 years. The pair met when she was just a teenager and stayed together until his death from heart failure in 1998 at the age of 71.
She explained how his passing was an “enormous loss” and left her devastated for a long time.
“I didn’t expect to end up with anyone again,” she continued. “Some women want to pair up again right away. I didn’t.”
Four years later, Corbett came into her life and the rest is history.
Derek, who rose to fame running on the beach alongside Dudley Moore in the 1979 comedy “10,” most recently played Tara Reid’s mother in the “Sharknado” franchise.
