Love is in the air behind the scenes at Once Upon a Time! A few months after co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas tied the knot, Lana Parrilla, the show's Evil Queen and mayor Regina Mills, married her fiancé, Fred Di Blasio.
News leaked yesterday that Parrilla and Di Blasio, a software executive, got married on July 5 in British Columbia. According to People, close friends and family attended the wedding, which Parrilla described as "magical." Fittingly for a woman who plays royalty on TV, Parrilla donned a custom Monique Lhuillier wedding dress for her big day.
Though they tied the knot nearly a month ago, they managed to keep their marriage a secret for a few weeks. It wasn't until Parrilla was spotted at several events wearing two rings on her left hand that rumors began swirling. As it turns out, they chose to get married just before the ABC fantasy series began filming its fourth season.
The couple got engaged in April 2013, when Di Blasio proposed during a trip to Israel. According to Us Weekly, Parrilla attributes her successful relationship to the show's removed filming location in Canada.
"Being up there has given me the freedom to invest in a relationship," she said. "It's been slightly rewarding."
Now, she can really enjoy the reward! Congratulations to the happy couple!
