No, the happy couple do not share children as of yet. Moreover, there are no reports on whether Balfe is trying for a baby. In addition, Tony also has not welcomed kids from any previous relationships as well.

Safe to say, the couple will take their time before getting into the realm of parenting. We are sure they will become excellent parents.

Is Caitriona’s on-screen romantic partner Sam Heughan dating anyone?

Before Balfe’s engagement confirmation, the terrific romance he shares with Balfe on-screen made many wonders whether they are also special beyond the camera. But, they are just close friends off-screen.

In an interview with Parade in October 2018, Balfe addressed the rumors and stated,

There’s a small vocal group that really wanted it, which is just a testament to the characters that we portray, that the love story is so inspiring and so aspirational that people just really wanted to believe in it. And that’s a nice thing. But I think things are pretty clear now that I’m engaged to someone else. Everyone gets it now.

Heughan is also not dating anyone at present. Nevertheless, the actor previously dated actress MacKenzie Mauzy. He was also rumored to be dating Cody Kennedy and a budding actress Amy Shiels.
