“They live in Austin and love it,” an insider reportedly told women’s Day

“Catherine never imagined that as a bona fide New Yorker she would one day move to Texas, but she’s found she’s a perfect fit, and the slower pace is doing the world good for her husband.”

The publication also understands that the couple would like to start a family.

According to Woman’s Day, the troubled actor and director, 45, and his wife, 28, have moved from their two-bedroom apartment on New York’s Upper West Side and now live in a “sprawling mansion on the edge of town.”

Matthew’s marriage to his long-term girlfriend Catherine was confirmed during a speech at his father’s state funeral in Melbourne.

Bert died on October 30 last year at the age of 83 after a much-discussed battle with illness.

Matthew and Catherine, the daughter of former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, began dating in 2012 and became engaged in October 2016.

“Catherine never imagined that as a bona fide New Yorker she would one day move to Texas, but she found she fit right in, and the slower pace is doing the world good for her husband,” an insider claimed.

A family friend told New Idea in 2017 that the couple had secretly married at Catherine’s mother’s home in New York.

†[Matthew] called his parents before the big day and invited them over, but as Bert’s health had been a bit strained in recent months, they decided a long-haul flight to New York might not be a good idea,” the source said at the time.

“This is the best news ever for Bert and Patti… they are so happy for Matthew.”

Who is Catherine Schneiderman?

Catherine Schneiderman is the daughter of former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Catherine’s romance with Matthew raised eyebrows, due to her father Eric’s well-known stance on domestic violence.

In 2006, Matthew was convicted of assaulting his then-fiancée, actress Brooke Satchwell.

In 2010, he announced his divorce from another fiancé, Rachael Taylor, after two “violent and unprovoked” attacks in Rome, which prompted her to launch an AVO against him.

Eric Schneiderman passed a bill in 2010 to increase the penalty for those involved in such crimes.

“Now is the time to criminalize this horrific form of abuse,” he said.

“I am proud of the overwhelming bipartisan support for this legislation. It sends a strong message that we must do everything we can to ensure that no one is immune from accountability for committing such a heinous crime.”

New Idea previously reported that Catherine was aware of Matthew’s past, but “sees him as a misunderstood genius.”

Matthew, who has a history of addiction, has a remarkably tumultuous past.

This includes allegations of domestic violence from two former girlfriends: Australian actresses Brooke Satchwell, 41, and Rachael Taylor, 37.

He was arrested for the alleged physical assault of former Neighbors star Satchwell in 2006 and pleaded guilty to common assault in court.

Matthew was given a good conduct bond, but the conviction was quashed on grounds of mental health.

In 2010, Matthew's then-girlfriend Rachael Taylor (left) filed a protective warrant against him for physical, verbal and emotional abuse, and he went to the Northside West Clinic in Sydney for treatment.  Together in the picture in 2009

In 2010, Matthew’s then-girlfriend Taylor filed a protective warrant against him for physical, verbal and emotional abuse, and he went to the Northside West Clinic in Sydney for treatment.

Matthew was also arrested twice in Miami, Florida, in 2012 — the first for trespassing and resisting cops, while a second was charged with battery and resisting arrest after assaulting a hotel receptionist.

After the indictment, Matthew checked into the Betty Ford Center in California for 90 days of alcohol and drug treatment.

Both cases were later dismissed on the condition that Matthew complete community service and write a letter of apology to the hotel clerk.

He was forced to retire from directing the Hollywood film Eve in October 2018 after social media criticized his alleged history of assault.
