Kristen and Josh, who tied the knot in November 2004, have a son, Cassius, and a daughter, Kingsley. Their segments on the show have often featured the pair dealing with marital tension.

Taekman is not the first famous name tied to the leak of the site's reported 37 million users following last month's breach. 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar apologized earlier this month for his account on the cheating website, calling himself the "biggest hypocrite ever" for being "unfaithful" to his wife, Anna.
