Jennifer, who is the daughter of iconic Broadway actor Joel Grey of Cabaret and Wicked fame, married Clark in July 2001 and welcomed Stella that December.

Her dating history before she became an item with Clark reportedly includes Johnny Depp and George Stephanopoulos.

She shot to fame in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off opposite Matthew Broderick, another rumored flame, and got a Golden Globe nod as Baby in Dirty Dancing.
