While running errands in Sydney last month, actor James Stewart and his wife Sarah Roberts wore dejected expressions.
Though they would put these rumours to rest when Sarah proudly revealed her wedding ring at the AACTA Awards on Wednesday, the couple were seen out separately, sparking rumours that their marriage was in trouble.
Sarah, 38, who portrayed Willow Harris on Home and Away from 2017 to 2021, was spotted getting a coffee in the CBD on November 25 sans her engagement ring.
James was seen carrying real estate paperwork the following day, including what seemed to be a Belle Property brochure.
The couple was the subject of split rumours at the time of the images, but Sarah’s ring-flashing presence at the AACTAs in Sydney earlier this week put an end to the rumours.
Sarah attracted attention at the renowned event in a stunning white dress with feathers.
It happened after James earlier this month wished his wife a happy birthday and demonstrated that there was no difficulty in paradise.
On December 4, he said on Instagram, “Happy birthday, baby.”
Later, Sarah gave a response that strongly suggested the couple was still together.
“Thanks for having a blast with me last night on the dance floor… such a great birthday, little one,” she wrote.
James, who wed Sarah in 2019, was reportedly absent from the Melbourne premiere of Sarah’s most recent movie, Wog Boys Forever, which led to the breakup rumours.
He was “nowhere to be seen on the red carpet,” according to The Daily Telegraph, and he reportedly stopped following his wife’s Instagram.
Sarah’s agency, though, denied that they had split up.
