Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Relationship Timeline: From Hollywood Stars to Farm Owners

2014 Hilarie Burton Jeffrey Dean Morgan Relationship Timeline

Love at first sight! Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have enthralled fans with their sweet relationship, which quickly evolved after they met in May 2009.

The One Tree Hill alum hit it off with the Walking Dead actor instantly, thanks in part to her former costar Danneel Ackles’ interference. Morgan, for his part, had his Supernatural costar Jensen Ackles to thank for introducing the pair that spring.

The couple didn’t tie the knot until October 2019, but throughout their first 10 years together, they grew in their love, welcomed two children and began multiple businesses.

“From the moment I met @jeffreydeanmorgan, he was my husband. Rather than make vows right out of the gate, we lived them. For over ten years. The good times and the bad,” Burton wrote via Instagram after she and Morgan legally wed. “Standing up there with our children at our sides — celebrating all that has been — was bliss.”
