“One was that everyone had to have fun," Stephanie said of her wedding day priorities. “And the other was that Lance couldn’t see my dress before I walked down the aisle. That was it."

She also revealed that her wedding dress cost just $250, adding, "Lance picked it up at the post office, and it fit perfectly. My favorite moment of the wedding day was when my mom saw me in my dress and she started crying."

"In this business, it's so much about either getting the next job or who's the bigger star or how much money you're making and I'm not saying that's what it has necessarily been about for me but you get caught up in that ... and sometimes you forget that we're mortal," he said. "It made me realize that I always have to keep in front of me why I'm doing this."

He continued, "I felt it more with my ex-wife because suddenly I was my kids' only parent... I have great kids and it's because they had a great mom."

Lance was also a proud dog dad, with his last Instagram post being dedicated to his three pups.
