David Harbour has publicly addressed the state of his marriage with Lily Allen after rumors that their relationship is on the rocks circulated online.

The 48-year-old Strangers Things star has been married to the 38-year-old British pop star since 2020 and is a stepdad to her two daughters Ethel, 11, and Marnie, 10.

In recent weeks there have been reports of a rift in their marriage after Allen seemingly unfollowed her husband on Instagram just weeks after celebrating their third wedding anniversary on the platform, per The Mirror.

The speculations continued, with additional sources claiming that the couple was living "separate lives" as the 'Smile' hitmaker was performing in London's West End production of The Pillowman, while Harbour remained at home in the US.

The couple were last pictured at a showbiz party in New York back in September when the musician returned to the US. The split rumors continued to persist a month later after Allen shared pictures of a Halloween party she was hosting on her Instagram stories, with her husband nowhere to be seen.

However, Allen and Harbour seemingly brushed off any divorce allegations as they were photographed together at a basketball game in New York on Wednesday (November 1), per The Evening Standard.

Now, in a new interview with PEOPLE, the Violent Night actor spoke in his own words about his marriage to the 'Somewhere Only We Know' songstress, and confirmed that it is going "so great".

But he admitted the SAG-AFTRA strikes - which ended last Thursday - had affected their relationship, explaining that as an actor, he was "sitting on the couch depressed as hell" with "nothing to do".

"It's been bad," the actor told the outlet. "It's like what happened to me in the same way in COVID, where you think to yourself like, 'Oh, now, I kind of have all this time.' And then you just check your Google alerts every five minutes and are just neurotically insecure."

"My wife likes when I go to work because it’s nice for her to have her life and me to have my life and for us not to just annoy each other by being around all the time," he continued.

He spoke proudly about getting to raise their "great" children, and expressed that "as our marriage continues, we grow closer and closer".

The romance between the couple first began after they matched on exclusive dating app Raya. They soon confirmed their relationship after they made their first public appearance before going Instagram official with a picture from a trip to Disneyland.

The pair then took their relationship to the next level by getting married in a Las Vegas ceremony that was officiated by an Elvis Presley impersonator in September 2020.

After tying the knot three years ago, the Hellboy star revealed to GQ Hype the story behind their romance and how he knew the 'Hard Out Here' musician was the woman for him.

"She claims to have fallen in love at first sight with me - I mean, who wouldn’t? I remember the exact moment. It was our third date," he shared. "I was just in this phase, where I was like, I’m just going to be brutally honest about everything, because why lie?

"And I told her something about my life, about my beliefs," he continued, adding, "It would take a really extraordinary person to be accepting of the things that I said. And I remember thinking: Wow, that’s somebody I want to be around."
