They have been very serious from the moment they arrived together, and their romance has intensified due to the show. It all means they can spend a lot of time together. "

In his case, the union only made the heart more affectionate.

As for her husband, "He makes me laugh a lot, and even if we fight, he makes me laugh, so I can't even say angry, which is a bit frustrating. I want to get angry!"

Dallas was also a great help when Oliver was born, with Goodwin counting We weekly when his firstborn was about 5 months old, "he hasn't slept since mid-May. I always say, "You can sleep," but he doesn't, it always helps. He's my knight in shining armor. "

They can be proud parents, but the children you see on the Dallas Instagram page are from their NBC program Manifest, which will return for a second season next month. He and Goodwin, although you can at least pretend that you can see them totally in love on the screen, keep their family life super private, and she doesn't even make social networks.

The actress, than before Once Upon a time played one of Bill paxtonThe three wives in the award-winning HBO drama Big LoveHowever, he has no interest in leaving Los Angeles, although it is not the easiest place to live a private life.

"I want to continue on television when Once Upon a time inevitable but unfortunately it ends, "said Memphis native Tenn. Subway in 2016. "But I will refuse to leave Los Angeles after this. Our lives as actors are already crazy; our children do not need to be uprooted from school. Once they enter school, they will stay in school. Otherwise, they will not be normal. "

"When I was in Big Love"Goodwin said," I suddenly realized that no child could see that until he or she was much older. Then I started looking at all the other things that I have done. I am super proud of my career, but even romantic comedies are not suitable for the family. I wanted to at least expand to the family world. That was a big part of me taking Once Upon a time".

An intelligent decision, considering.

"We met in that program, we fell in love and seven years later, we are married and have two children," Dallas recalled in Live with Kelly and Ryan last year. And, he confirmed, there was no dillydallying. "We went straight for it," he said.

Goodwin has ventured into darker territory lately, appearing in an episode of Jordan Peelerestart of The twilight zone and protagonist of the slippery drama Women who kill, as one of the three wives driven to … well, kill, while it is her life off the screen that is dedicated to family material, like her and Dallas day with the children at Disneyland last spring.

It turned out that this time he also intentionally went in another direction with his career.

"I spent years making material that my children can see. So yes, I wasn't looking for that later," Goodwin told reporters at the 2019 Television Critics Association press tour in August, discussing Women who kill. "I was definitely looking for something that my husband and I saw together alone at night when the children are definitely in bed."

All efforts are appreciated. His Instagram may be a child-free zone, but Dallas loves to recognize his wife's many excellent qualities.

"Intelligence is Ginny. Elegance is Ginny. Beauty is Ginny. Grace is Ginny. Funny is Ginny. My love is Ginny. Happy birthday to the best I know," he wrote on his birthday in 2018.

And in February, he gave a promotional touch to his latest role with hashtags: "#ginnifergoodwin #whywomenkill #loverforlife #badass #myqueen,quot;.

"She is the best human I know, so that's easy," Dallas told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager in Today in January, explaining his romantic publications.

The Charming King (after all, she is his queen) mentioned some of his secrets for a strong marriage: "Understanding, willingness to be flexible. And just love. You have to love and be willing to grow up with that person, or let that that person also grows and gives them space. "

But not too much. When asked if he could have dinner with someone, dead or alive, Dallas chose Paul Newman for the first And the last?

His wife, "because she is a great companion for dinner."

And they live happily ever after.
