Then, in early 1993, he asked her to come along for the Bob Hope Celebrity Pro-Am, which was their first tournament as a couple. In November 1996, they got married in a romantic wedding after having dated for 4 years. In June 1999, she gave birth to their first daughter, Amanda Brynn.

However, the childbirth was complicated and Phil even featured that he might lose both of them. Evan had stopped breathing and she had ruptured an artery in her uterus. But they managed to pull through.
