“Kids safely tucked up in bed. 20 years of knowing each other, 13 years together, 10 years of marriage and three amazing children. We’re doing ok,” she wrote atop a picture of her kissing Ellie’s cheek.
Replying to various fans and well-wishers in the post’s comments, Peace said the evening consisted of “a lovely dinner and uninterrupted chat,” and added that “Date night is a very new concept for us and is really quite wonderful.”
Peace went on to clarify that it wasn’t the pair’s anniversary, but just a spontaneous rendezvous between the two, who share three daughters together.
“It’s not our anniversary,” she explained.
“It’s just a random date night which we’ve not had for many years as the girls were small. But they’re at an age now where we can start to have a bit of time together again. It’s lovely.”
The couple entered a civil partnership in 2013, and converted it to a marriage a year later. Their first daughter was born in 2015 and they later had twins in 2017.
EastEnders recently aired a dark storyline for Peace’s character Eve; she came face to face with ‘Amanda’, who revealed herself as Caz – the woman who killed Eve’s sister in a car accident years prior.
The revelation resulted in Eve sleeping rough and drinking heavily.
EastEnders airs on Mondays – Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
