The Couple Were Considered As Goals In The Past

Dane has been vocal about his struggle with depression in the past and even took a temporary break from TNT's The Last Ship as the actor focused on his health. His then-wife Gayheart stood by his side all the times. Supporting her husband Gayheart said at the time, "Eric asked for a break to deal with personal issues. He suffers from depression and has asked for a few weeks of downtime and the producers kindly granted that request. He looks forward to returning." Gayheart also referred her husband in the past as her "man crush."
