‘Virgin River’ Star Ben Hollingsworth Shares Sweet Video of Daughter Juniper

Just because Ben Hollingsworth plays a bad boy on Netflix doesn’t mean he’s that way in real life. In fact, the Virgin River star, 37, recently “turned into a big mushy mess” thanks to his youngest daughter, Juniper.

Yesterday, Hollingsworth celebrated Juniper’s 1st birthday on Instagram by sharing a reel with videos and photos from her first year. To heighten the emotion even further, he set the clip to Adele’s newest single, “Easy on Me.”

The video begins with a rare glimpse into their bath time routine, which is followed by photos and videos of the proud father soaking up baby snuggles. While his wife, Nila Myers, also makes a cameo, there’s no denying that Juniper steals the show.

Hollingsworth captioned the post, “My little angel turned 1 over the weekend and I turned into a big mushy mess. Happy Birthday #JuniperBloom [flower emoji] [kiss emoji] [cake emoji].”

Hollingsworth has been married to Myers (who’s a lingerie designer and Bar Method teacher) since 2012. In addition to Juniper, they share two other children: Hemingway (5) and Gatsby (3).

Hollingsworth is widely recognized for starring on Virgin River, where he plays Dan Brady, but that’s not his only acting credit. Not only did he appear in multiple television shows—like Trapped, Heartland, Degrassi: The Next Generation, The Line and CSI: Miami—but he also worked alongside Meghan Markle in Suits. One of his biggest claims to fame is Code Black, where he played Mario Savetti.
