If you’re secretly crushing on Manifest star Josh Dallas (who plays Ben Stone), you should know that he’s already off the market. In fact, the 42-year-old actor had a true fairytale romance with his now-wife, Ginnifer Goodwin.
Let’s dive in, shall we? Goodwin and Dallas met in 2011 on the set of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, which puts a modern twist on classic stories. (They played Snow White and Prince Charming.) Although rumors were swirling when the show premiered, they denied all gossip at first, claiming they were just friends. Everything changed a few months later when Goodwin and Dallas finally came clean with their relationship and confirmed that it was practically love at first sight.
“We were on Big Thunder Mountain [at Disneyland]. And he threw his arms in the air, and he goes, ‘This is the best day of my life,’” Goodwin said on Live with Kelly and Michael. “And I was like, ‘We’re totally getting married.’”
In 2013, Dallas got down on one knee and proposed to Goodwin, who said “yes.” (Duh.) One year later, they tied the knot in an intimate wedding. The nuptials took place just one month before they became parents to a baby boy named Oliver. They welcomed their second child, Hugo, in 2016.
