Stocks Groceries With Girlfriend
43-year-old Stephen is openly dating the American actress and model Mircea Monroe.

Moreover, the couple was spotted together at a party that marked Episodes fifth and final season in August 2017. The couple were looking pretty happy and even posed together for a photo. Mircea adorably wrapped her arm around Stephen’s waist for a picture in the event.
While the couple looks cute together, they are yet to shed their thoughts on getting married and starting a family. Could Mircea be the one to be the lawful wife of Stephen? Well, let's see what happens next!
By the way, before Mircea, Stephen was in a relationship with three other women.
His first official girlfriend was Claire Jones in the year 2007. They were enjoying a smooth sail for a couple of years and took a break in 2009. A close source to Stephen stated that the couple had different ideas, where the relationship was heading to, so they were destined to part.
Stephen was back to dating in the year 2013. He dated the gorgeous British-American actress, Hayley Atwell. However, their relationship turned south, and the couple parted ways.
Afterward, Stephen was in a relationship with actress and dancer Christine Marzano in 2015. They stuck together through thick and thins. The couple met a car accident back in February 2015. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured, and the incident brought them closer.
But since early 2017, no news of their togetherness has surfaced in the media. Moreover, the fact of Stephen being together with another woman inevitably implies that they are now parted.
