The couple added to their family in 1994, with the birth of their son, John Henry.
Selective about her work, Pfeiffer starred opposite Sean Penn in I Am Sam (2001), the heart-wrenching story of a mentally challenged man who is fighting to keep his young daughter. She continued to explore family issues with 2002's White Oleander, playing a mother whose life is ruined when she's sentenced to prison, and her daughter is put into foster care.
In 2007, Pfeiffer returned to the big screen after being absent for several years. She gave an impressive, humorous performance in the hit musical Hairspray, co-starring with John Travolta, Christopher Walken and Nikki Blonsky. She then appeared in a number of films that met with little success, including the family friendly adventure Stardust (2007), with Robert De Niro; and the drama Personal Effects (2009), with Ashton Kutcher.
