Freddie Prinze Jr.'s Blessed Life With Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar
Freddie Prinze Jr. and his love life Sarah Michelle Gellar first came closer on the set of What You Did Last Summer in 1997. They also met several times before while filming I Know What You Did Last Summer the same year.
After a couple of encounters, the two started dating in 2000 and got engaged in April 2001.
The two tied the knot on 1st September 2002 in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, in Western Mexico. The couple also co-starred in Happily N'Ever After, Star Wars Rebels, Scooby-Doo, and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.
Remembering the past days, Prinze Jr shared some of his memories. He admitted,
"We were just friends. That's one of the reasons I think our relationship has always been so good. We were just friends for a good two years before we ever went on a date. She knew what kind of guy I was. She knew what my morals were, what my priorities were and visa versa. We already kind of knew all the faults in the other person."
'We ended up being a perfect balance. But it didn't happen until years after and there was a solid foundation built, and that's probably the main reason why we've always been cool and groovy.'
The heaven-born couple celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary on Friday, 1st September 2017.
Not only a loving husband, Prinze is a proud father too. The couple shares two kids together; Charlotte Grace Prinze and Rocky James Prinze.
"For me being a father, not having a dad, it makes it my No.1 priority."
His father died when he was just one year of age and that makes him more caring.
'So when my daughter was born, that was pretty much it for me. I became a full-time father. It's not a job. It's what I love to do.'
Prinze and the Emmy-winning actress have much to celebrate in their relationship. Let's cheer up the lovely couple!
