Helen Hunt is a divorcee and a mother of one.

At 60 years of age, she has been married once. Her previous marriage was to fellow actor Hank Azaria, known for voicing several characters in the animated show, “The Simpsons.” However, their marriage was short-lived, as they tied the knot in July 1999 and divorced in December 2000.

The accomplished actress and director found love once more when she crossed paths with producer and writer Matthew Carnahan. Together, they welcomed their daughter, Makena, who is now 19 years old, born in May 2004.

Helen welcomed her only child during the height of her acting career, following her Oscar win for Best Actress in the 1997 romantic comedy “As Good as It Gets,” in which she starred alongside Jack Nicholson and Cuba Gooding Jr.

In a candid interview in September 2008, she openly discussed the joys of motherhood, emphasizing that nothing could compare to being a mother to her four-year-old daughter at the time, Makena. Helen decided to take a step back from the spotlight to “get a life” and further expressed, “I fell in love. I had a daughter.”

Helen and Matthew were in a relationship from 2001 to 2017. Despite their romantic relationship ending after many years, they continue to co-parent their daughter, Makena, who is now a teenager. In December 2020, an insider disclosed that raising their child together with her former partner is still a “top priority” for Helen, even though they may not always see eye to eye.

Nonetheless, the source mentioned that both of them have moved forward in their personal lives. Matthew was reportedly dating someone, while Helen was in a discreet relationship with professional photographer Steven Tepper.

Additionally, another insider shared that Helen was deeply in love with Steven, a former attorney, and she held hopes for a positive future with him. As a result, she kept their newfound romance private and refrained from speaking publicly about it.

According to another source, the former attorney, Steven, is described as a “super private” and an “ordinary guy.” Helen chose not to reveal the intricacies of their relationship, with the insider explaining that she didn’t want to subject him to the scrutiny of the celebrity spotlight.

The source also disclosed that Helen’s daughter had warmly welcomed her new boyfriend, Steven, and appreciated how he brought happiness to her mother’s life. Steven even joined his famous girlfriend and her family for Thanksgiving during that time.

Furthermore, an insider mentioned that they were all eagerly anticipating spending the holidays together. At that point, Helen had been in a relationship with Steven for “over a year,” and her daughter Makena had reportedly gotten to know him better over that time.

The source clarified that despite the fact that the four-time Emmy Award winner had chosen to maintain the secrecy of her relationship with Steven, they were still a strong and committed couple at that time.

Furthermore, it appeared that Makena had developed a fondness for her mother’s significant other. The insider disclosed, “Makena likes him, and that means a lot to her. [Helen] deserves happiness, and Steven makes her happy.”
