Lake started dating Evans, a jewelry designer, in 2010. They got engaged a year later, and eloped in a secret ceremony in southern California in April 2012.

"We just clicked," she told People in 2012 about her relationship with Evans. "It just feels like he was the right one all along."

According to People, the former talk show host is expected to pay Evans spousal support. She and Evans have no children together, although Lake is already a mother of two sons from her previous marriage to illustrator-bartender Rob Sussman -- Milo, 17, and Owen, 13.
