The announcement came after photos allegedly showing Galafassi in a relationship with another woman were made public. Before announcing their divorce, Collette and Galafassi did not say when they officially split up.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the actor and drummer met in 2002 at the album release party for Galafassi’s then-band Gelbison. They got married two hours south of Sydney, Australia, at sunset on January 11, 2003.
People say that when their daughter was born in 2008, they told the Associated Press, “We’re over the moon.” Then, in 2011, they had a son.
Her publicist told E! News at the time, “Toni Collette, her husband David Galafassi, and their daughter Sage Galafassi are excited and proud to announce the birth of their son, Arlo Robert Galafassi.” “He was born on Good Friday, so it really was the best Friday!”

In 2019, the actress from “Little Miss Sunshine” told The Sydney Morning Herald that she and Galafassi had moved permanently to Sydney, which feels like “home” to them.
“I’ve lived in so many different places, and my family and I are very flexible. When I’m working, we can set up a house anywhere. But you can’t fake that feeling of home, and when I get home to Sydney, I feel it very strongly. It was really all about being with our people, the people we love, and enjoying Sydney.”
