Director Michael Morris made headlines after being pictured in a passionate kiss with his Smash star Katharine McPhee last October, despite both parties being married.

But nine months on, Morris and his wife of 11 years Mary McCormack appear to have put many of their troubles behind them.

The couple were spotted jetting out of LAX on Wednesday night, both wearing their wedding rings and looking extremely happy together.

At one point actress Mary – the mother of Michael’s three children, gave her husband a loving look before the couple boarded the plane.

The marriage was rocked by scandal when Michael was seen embracing McPhee in the passionate smooch.

However, although Morris and McCormack were seen out together just days after the kiss, McPhee and her husband Nick Cokas filed for divorce.

The divorce papers said that Cokas and McPhee had separated in March 2013 –  seven months prior to the infamous kiss.

McPhee, who was pictured earlier this week enjoying a night put in Los Angeles, had been married to Cokas for six years.

The actress’ representative told People in a statement: ‘After six years of marriage, and having been separated for the past year, Katharine McPhee has filed for a dissolution of marriage from Nick Cokas,’ the rep told the magazine.

‘The two have an amicable relationship and will remain friends. They ask that people respect their privacy during this time.’

It had appeared that Katharine and Nick were on the road to reconciliation when they were spotted together in March with their dogs and looking happy.

However, both parties ultimately decided to part ways, with a source telling People: ‘It was just time. They’d grown apart and weren’t right for each other anymore.’

The pair married in Beverly Hills in February 2008 when Katharine was 23 after a three year romance.

The age difference apparently wasn’t a problem. ‘When I turned 21, I thought it was a good age to explore,’ Katharine previously told Stuff magazine. ‘You’re no longer a teenager, so it’s OK [to date older guys]. I gravitated toward them, and I love them.

‘They’re just wiser, and they’re less about themselves and more about you.’

It’s over: The star filed for divorce from Nick Cokas, her husband of six years, pictured in May 2012
