Peirce and Keely Shaye, an American journalist and television host, first met in 1994. “He was captivating,” she told PEOPLE in 2001. “Tall, dark, and handsome–everything that everybody would immediately be attracted to. He had this mischievous sparkle in his eyes. I thought, ‘Wow! Wow!'” Shortly afterward, they had their first date when they “sat down under the stars, and he held my hand. There were fireworks going off over our heads, and Kenny Loggins was singing.”

“We talked until 3 in the morning. I understand why women find him sexy because he is an appealing man. He really likes and appreciates women. … He’s intelligent, captivating and his real beauty emanates from the soul,” she added. “And, like a fine wine, he’s aging beautifully.”

“I found a great woman in Keely Shaye,” Pierce told People. “Not if I searched a million times over would I find one as good.”

In the near-three decades since that wonderful day, they welcomed a pair of sons – Dylan Thomas Brosnan, 25, and 21-year-old Paris Beckett Brosnan. Pierce is also a father to three other children from his first marriage with the late Cassandra Harris.
