Prinze and Gellar’s bond turned after a fumbled dinner date in January 2000. “We were supposed to have dinner with a friend of ours, and she didn’t make her plane, so we went anyway,” he told Us in 2020. “We’d had tons of dinners before and for some reason, it felt different that night.

Two years later, the pair tied the knot in September 2002. Nearly seven years later, they expanded their family. They share daughter Charlotte and son Rocky, born in 2009 and 2012, respectively.
