12 Things You Didn’t Know About Hilarie Burton And Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Relationship
When it comes to surprising and low-key celebrity couples, former One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton and beloved actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan are at the top of the list. The pair are loved individually by fans, but together they are a superstar couple, but also extremely elusive and private, so much so that some don’t even know they are together! They have now been going strong for over seven years, leaving us with these 12 things not widely known about their adorable romance and relationship:
12. They Love Candy
Despite being beloved stars, the two live a very low-key life, and actually co-own a candy store in Rhinebeck, New York, called Samuel’s Sweet Shop. After the passing of the owner, Morgan and Burton, fellow actor Paul Rudd and his wife Julie, and their friend Andy and his wife all bought the store. In an interview, Morgan revealed that Hilarie, Julie, and Andy’s wife, Phoebe, are very hands on and are the ones that keep it running smoothly.
11. How They Met
Despite a 16 year age difference between the two stars, mutual friends of the pair thought Burton and Morgan would get along great, so they set them up on a blind date in 2009! The pair met thanks to Morgan’s former Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles, who just so happens to be married to Danneel Harris who starred on One Tree Hill with Burton. In an interview, Morgan explained, “I happened to be single and Jensen said ‘I’ve got a girl you should meet,’ and so I went to a bar and I met Hilarie at a bar with Jensen and Danneel, and, well, the rest is kind of history.” He also revealed that everyone got pretty drunk on the double date, adding, “We ended up back at my house drinking shots of tequila.”
