Stephen Kay is an American actor, director, and writer best known for his work on Get Carter, Sons of Anarchy, and Friday Night Lights. He has been married to Yellowstone actress Piper Perabo for nearly a decade.
Kay met his wife on the television show Covert Affairs (2010). They clicked immediately and began dating after knowing each other for a while. After dating for nearly three years, Kay proposed to Perabo, and the couple got engaged in September 2013.
Later, the couple married on July 27, 2014, in New York City, surrounded by their closest friends and family. They were overjoyed to be legally married and celebrated with a New Orleans band.
Perabo wore a striking Michael Kors bridal gown in keeping with the wedding’s New Orleans theme. Likewise, Kay carried on the theme with a generously cut and slightly frayed blue three-piece suit.

Perabo’s wedding ring was visible during their appearance outside the museum, where a New Orleans band joined them.
As of this writing, the married couple is still together, and their togetherness seems to grow stronger with each passing day.
Piper Perabo’s relationship with her stepdaughter
Despite dating well-known actresses, Kay is still thought to be gay. But those gay rumors were dismissed when he admitted to having a daughter from a previous relationship. That said, he has not revealed the name of his child’s mother and kept his daughter’s identity hidden.
After Kay’s marriage to Perabo, she became a stepmother to Kay’s daughter. And although the married couple doesn’t have any biological children, Perabo still regards her stepdaughter as her own and gets along well with her.
However, that doesn’t mean she will reveal the details about her stepdaughter. Nonetheless, the adoring stepmother did express her appreciation for being a stepmother. Perabo was beaming with pride in 2019 when she told her stepdaughter was getting a Netflix show.
She stated, “I just think she’s perfect. Do you understand what I mean? I really hit the jackpot with her, so if you get dealt an ace, just thank your lucky stars.”
