A successful makeup artist Natalie was married to New Zealand actor Karl Urban. They were married in September 2004. Their wedding was a lavish ceremony, with several celebrities in attendance.

As a married couple, they lived in their NZ$5.25 million mansions in Auckland, New Zealand. But unfortunately, things didn’t work between the two for very long and they separated in September 2014. Though the couple didn’t reveal the reason behind their split, sources assume they divorced because of Karl’s extra-marital relationship with actress Katee Sackhoff, whom he dated from 2014 to 2018.

Soon after their divorce, they even sold their Auckland home for NZ$6.65 million in December 2014.
