Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, and Julianne Moore were all in attendance.
The pair have two children together. Their son Matteo was born in 2015, and they welcomed a daughter, Emilia Giovanna, on April 19, 2018.

Tragically, Kate died from breast cancer in 2009.
At the end of January 2021, Tucci revealed he’s still grieving the death of his wife 11 years after she passed away. The actor had previously not spoken about Kate’s death.
In the interview with CBS, he said: “You never stop grieving. You never stop grieving,
“And it’s still hard after 11 years, it’s still hard, and it always will be hard. But you can’t let it—and she would never want any of us to—to wallow in that grief and let it take over our lives.
“She would never want that. She wasn’t like that.”
He has spoken about the struggle of meeting Felicity soon after Kate’s death.
He told The Times: “There are photographs around at home. Not that many, but I would have difficulty,
“And especially when we first met, it was only two years after Kate died.”
