Olivia O’Flanagan and Gillen’s Divorce

Aidan swept Olivia O’Flanagan off her feet with his signature smirking expression. He had moved to London to make the best of himself, and the two most likely met there.

Aidan faced a lot of paparazzi and media after his appearance in the critically acclaimed TV series Queer as Folk in 1999. However, he was able to keep his personal life private. On July 7, 2001, they married in a private ceremony in London.

Berry Murphy and Joe Murphy are Aidan and Olivia’s two children. The couple and their children lived in the Kerry countryside until their divorce. He was a big fan of his country house. He once stated, ”

It’s really beautiful, rural and rugged. I like not working, I like downtime, so I cycle around in the country, go camping, read books.

Aidan dedicated his achievement to his wife and two children when he won an Irish Film and Television Award in 2009. He mentioned how important his family was to him. The celebrity couple’s love, however, did not last. Aidan and Olivia officially separated five years later in 2014, ending their 13-year relationship.

What Is Aidan’s Current Relationship Status?

Aidan has named his children as his greatest love, but he has also fallen in love with Camille O’Sullivan, an Irish musician and actress. Camille had never heard of Aiden’s work before they met. In a 2017 interview with the Irish Independent, she stated:

I had never seen him in his films. I knew he was an actor, but I didn’t know his work! Listen, I don’t think that man would have to work hard to win anyone over.
