Vogue reports show that the couple met each other in the year 2003, for the very first time in a bar in Miami. At that time he was showing the shooting of his comedy film named Stuck on You.

“Spotted her across a crowded room and instantly knew she was the woman I wanted to marry.” He said.

In one more interview with The Ellen Show where Damon opened up about his love life and told that he hit a big jackpot in life when he met Lucy.

“I’m so happy now; I’m so lucky. I hit the jackpot with my wife.”

“We were supposed to shoot in Hawaii, then the movie got moved to Miami. I’d never really hung out in Miami, then one night in the middle of the shoot a couple of the guys said they were going to get a beer somewhere and I said ‘I’m not interested’ but they dragged me along and we ended up in a bar where my wife was a bartender and I literally saw her across a crowded room,” he told Ellen.

At that time. Damon’s wife Luciana had a four-year-old daughter named Alexia and she was her single parent so her encounter with him was quite different.

“I was working as a bartender in South Beach (Miami) and he was shooting a movie there and the crew ended up in the bar one Saturday night… Matt’s story is that he saw me across the room and there was a light on me. And I’m like: ‘yeah it was a nightclub – there were lights everywhere!’” she told Vogue.

“But he had started getting recognized and asked for pictures and autographs, and then it got kind of aggressive because people are drinking and stuff, and so he came and hid behind my bar … [wanting to] just hang out back there and have a drink. He says ‘oh I saw you and I really wanted to talk to you.”

“So I put him to work with me! I said: ‘you know, if you’re going to be back here, you can’t just be standing there!’ He had trained as a bartender for a film years before, so he started making drinks. And he made me a ton of money in tips that night, because of course everyone wanted to go and see him. So it turned into a really fun night and then 15 years later here we are!”

According to Luciana, the best thing about him was Damon’s love and affection towards her daughter and because of this, she fell in love with him faster.

“We definitely had a connection right away, it was so easy to talk to each other we were very comfortable, and by the end of the night, he invited me to go out with his friends. But I was like: ‘I can’t, I have a four-year-old daughter, I’m not going anywhere’… and that was one of the things he loved, that I had a daughter.

He said: ‘I love that you’re a mum and that’s your priority’.  Some guys might have been different, they might think it’s complicated, but f,or him it wasn’t. When you meet somebody that you have a connection with, that’s just the person that you have a connection with, all the other stuff— the movie-star part—wasn’t really a factor. It was just Matt, to me he’s just Matt.”

The couple tied the knot with each other in the year 2005, and then Alexia found the most loving stepdad. Now Matt and Lucy are happily married and proud parents of three beautiful daughters- Isabella, Gia, and Stella.
