"I wish I'd had more courage to ask out Tanya Haden, the woman who eventually became my wife. We met at school at 18 and I wasted 15 years waiting for my chance," The Sun newspaper quoted Black as saying.
"She was everything I could wish for. Talented, beautiful and a wonderful performer on stage. She was part of a band called The Haden Triplets. We first worked together on a student film but we did not date," he added.
Black and Haden have two sons named Samuel and Thomas.
