Even though most couples would be afraid to work with their significant other, Bakula had no complaints about having his wife at work. But when the couple was not handling their busy schedules, they enjoyed their quiet time in their home surrounded by nature.


Field even shared a picture of a beautiful flower archway from the entryway of their home, with a view of a forest of trees around the house.

Bakula wanted to make time to coach his son’s soccer and baseball teams. From his first marriage with Krista Neumann, the actor has two children, Chelsy Bakula and Cody Bakula.

Now Field and Bakula enjoy a different phase of life with their first grandchild. Field loves to share adorable pictures of her grandson and loves to see her husband, her son, and her grandson all together.
