In order to further their cover, they produced two children together, Paige in late 1967 and Henry in early 1971.
While in New York for an operation with his old flame, Irina, he ended up having an affair with her.
After returning home, he told Elizabeth that she was the only woman in his life (“Duty and Honor”).
