Ginnifer Goodwin, the actress known for her role as Mary Margaret, or Snow White on Once Upon A Time, is engaged to her co-star, Josh Dallas. Fans of the show know what that means for her character, as the show combines the real world with fairy tales. Throughout the first season, it slowly reveals the true identities of all of the townspeople living in a fictional town in Maine, conveniently called Storybrooke. On the show, Goodwin and Dallas play Snow White and Prince Charming, lovers in the show and apparently that love affair translated to their real lives as well.
The couple have been dating since the fall of 2011, when Once Upon A Time premiered. Goodwin has also appeared in several films, before her role in the popular ABC show, including Mona Lisa Smile, and most recently, romantic comedies such as He’s Just Not That Into You and Something Borrowed. The actress also starred in the HBO show Big Love from 2006-2011. She is set to play Jacqueline Kennedy in a TV movie called Killing Kennedy, which premieres on November 10. According to E Online, this will be the second marriage for Dallas, and the first for Goodwin, who broke off her engagement to Joey Kern in May of 2011.

There is no word on a wedding date yet, but Dallas popped the big question to Goodwin on Wednesday October 9th, in Los Angeles. The couple met on the set before the show started, but did not go public with their relationship until April of 2012. Part of the reason for this was that they had to remain as friends in the beginning due to Dallas’ marriage to Lara Pulver, but it appears that the couple felt a connection with one another right away. The couple said in a statement to People Magazine, “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.”
Thanks to all of you for the outpouring of love and congrats! @ginnygoodwin you have made me a very happy man!
