Ginnifer Goodwin was literally “barefoot and pregnant” at her recent wedding to her “Once Upon a Time” co-star Josh Dallas.
The 35-year-old actress opened up about her pregnancy and wedding for the first time during an appearance Wednesday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
“We wrapped production on ‘Once Upon a Time’ two weeks ago, and a couple days later I was wed in Venice, Calif.,” she told Kimmel, adding that she married “Prince Charming,” the character Dallas, 32, plays to Goodwin’s Snow White.
“We’re both southern, so I was literally barefoot and pregnant at our wedding,” she continued. “I was afraid I would fall over. I don’t know what I was thinking.”
Asked if their parents were angry that they got pregnant before saying their vows, Goodwin replied, “We may be southern, but it’s also the first grandchild, so they’re not only ecstatic that I’m pregnant but they’re all coming back out here in a couple of weeks to just camp out and wait.”
Goodwin also shared details about her first pregnancy.
“There’s like a Cirque de Soleil performance,” she said, pointing to her belly. “It’s like alien stuff.”
Asked if strangers had been rubbing her baby bump, she said, “I was told that people would be coming up on the streets and just manhandling me, but I’ve been spared.”
She then joked, “I feel a little less loved, but…”
The actress also shared a funny story from her wedding.
She said her wedding planner called her frantic that morning saying her car had been robbed of some of its contents, including Goodwin’s ketubah, or Jewish wedding contract.
Unruffled, Goodwin assured her, “The rabbi’s at a hotel—I’m sure there’s stationery there. We’ll be fine. This is not a big deal.”
By the time she got off the phone, Goodwin told Kimmel, she already had messages from her reps.
“This sounds like a joke,” she recalled. “Two Jews were walking down the street in Hollywood, found a piece of paper in the middle of the street, read Hebrew, knew that the 13th of Nissan was like the 12th of April, and that it therefore might be important that we get this piece of paper back with my name on it, Googled who represents Ginnifer Goodwin, found my reps at home on a Saturday, and got us back our wedding ketubah.”
