Her success isn’t the only thing Melissa McCarthy is proud of!
The actress may have recently experienced a career takeoff and a drastic weight loss, but one thing trumps all her achievements — and that’s her love for her husband, Ben Falcone!
“She says the most romantic thing is when their kids are asleep and they’re on the couch with their feet up, watching TV and drinking hot chocolate,” a friend revealed in an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly.
The duo — who previously married in 2005 — are parents to two daughters, Vivian, 9, and Georgette, 6.
In a previous interview with Closer, Ben, 43, revealed the secret to his happy marriage with Melissa, 46. “We sort of surround ourselves with just really great friends,” he confessed. “And we have a lot of barbecues. It’s really fun!”
However, when the couple has an occasional argument, Ben notes it’s important to “try to be patient” with your spouse. “Take your time when you’re picking someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with,” Ben recommends. “As long as you end up with someone kind and treat them kindly, I think it will work out.”

Melissa — who recently appeared in the Gilmore Girls reboot — has been making headlines recently for shedding more than 50 pounds since 2012. In the midst of her weight loss, she launched her Seven7 line for women sizes four through 28. And who was there to show their unconditional support but her hubby Ben?!
“Ben worships her and he loves her at any size — big, small or in between,” the insider told Closer, adding, “They’re a good team. And the fact that they’re both self-described oddballs makes it work.” Talk about relationship goals!
