They separated two years ago after nine years of marriage.

But Russell Crowe created some confusion about his relationship with Danielle Spencer during an interview with Channel 9 on Monday whilst talking about the Rabbitohs win.

Speaking about his delight at the triumph, Russell, who took over the South Sydney team in 2006, was prompted to talk about the highlights in his life so far.

Happy couple: Danielle joined Russell Crowe at The Star opening party on October 25, 2011, nearly exactly a year before they separated in 2012

The Oscar star said: ‘I’ve been very lucky. I’ve got two beautiful kids and I married a beautiful woman.’

Since the couple’s reluctance to publicly confirm their marital status there has always been some speculation since they reportedly split in 2012 – when Danielle’s father Don, spoke out to Who magazine saying: ‘I love them both and am naturally sad as any father would be in this situation.’

The couple, who first met on set of The Crossing 24 years ago and have two children, Charles, 10 and Tennyson, seven, are still regularly spotted out together.

Triumphant: The Oscar winner celebrated the Rabbitohs win earlier this week and included marrying Danielle and having two sons as the lucky moments in an interview with Channel 9 after the game

Still close: Danielle and Russell are still regularly seen together with their sons Charles, 10 and Tennyson, seven and were pictured her in LA in June, 2014

His comments about marrying a ‘beautiful woman’ will no doubt prompt more confusion about their relationship especially since Russell referred to Danielle as his ‘ex-wife’ when he spoke to Nova 96.9’s Dave ‘Rabbit’ Rabbetts last week about his upcoming film The Water Diviner fueling rumours that the couple had finally divorced.

He said: ‘Well you know what, my ex-wife Danielle, who doesn’t often feel the need to say anything positive about me, which is her right, had the same response.

‘She actually looked at me and said: “I got goose bumps and a tear just from that”.’

Support: The famous couple came together in September to support Nicole Kidman at her father Antony Kidman’s funeral

The pair are regularly spotted together and were most recently pictured at Nicole Kidman’s father Antony Kidman’s funeral last month in Sydney.

Earlier this year Danielle spoke to The  Sydney Morning Herald  about their complex relationship, saying:

‘It is what it is.

Strong family: Danielle said they had not got back together in an interview a few months ago, adding that they work together to keep things as normal as possible for their two children

‘For me the most important thing is for my kids to see that their parents are still a parental unit and that we’re still friends and that there is a lot of affection there, so it’s the way to go.

‘Obviously it’s very challenging for him to deal with, and very challenging for me to deal with, but I guess in some ways keeping under the radar is good for my kids.’

And referring to speculation of them getting back together she said: ‘They’re just rumours.’
