The actress and the actor who play Snow White and Prince Charming on the ABC series are confirmed to have been engaged.
Wedding bells are on the way for Ginnifer Goodwin and her "Once Upon a Time" co-star Josh Dallas. A representative confirms they are engaged. According to PEOPLE, he popped the question to his girlfriend of two years in Los Angeles on Wednesday, October 9.
"We are so thrilled to announce our engagement and can't wait to celebrate with our friends and family, including our second family at Once Upon a Time," the newly-engaged pair say in a joint statement. There is no word on the wedding date just yet.
Ginnifer, 35, and Dallas, 31, first met on the set of the ABC fantasy series in 2011 while he was still married to actress Lara Pulver back then. He split from Pulver in fall 2011 but didn't go public with his relationship with Ginnifer until April 2012.
The "Something Borrowed" actress plays Snow White on the show and "Thor" star Dallas is her Prince Charming. "It hit me like a blinding light," he said of falling in real life for his on-screen love interest. "I thought, 'I'm in trouble now.' "
Working together with his girlfriend was "definitely a plus," he said, because they "get to spend so much time together." He added, "I think it adds something; it adds a different dynamic to the characters that we're playing that we can bring to it."
"It's always a great day going to work with Ginnifer Goodwin; she's a fantastic actress and I learn so much from her. We just get to play, so it's nice," he gushed. "We try to keep [our personal life] very separate; work is work, and private time is private time."
It will be the first marriage for Ginnifer. She was previously engaged to actor Joey Kern, whom she began dating in 2009. They broke it off in May 2011. Before seeing Kern, she dated her "Day Zero" co-star Chris Klein. They called it off after two years of dating.
