Jodie Turner-Smith proposed to Joshua Jackson in Nicaragua on NYE

Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson at the Vogue & Tiffany Fashion Film Party at Annabel's

I always thought Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson were such a hot couple. They were together for years and they never married. Then Diane cheated on him and their years-long relationship crashed and burned soon after. Joshua did what most well-adjusted guys would do when they find themselves single after being in a years-long relationship: he dated, he had fun, he hung out with friends, he met women in bars and he eventually fell into another relationship, this time with Jodie Turner-Smith. They fell for each other hard and fast. They got married and he knocked her up. Now Joshua is telling the story of how Jodie proposed to him:

Jimmy Fallon asked him when he knew that he was destined to marry Jodie, Joshua says: “I knew the moment she asked me…She asked me, yeah, on New Year’s Eve. We were in Nicaragua. It was very beautiful, incredibly romantic. We were walking down the beach, and she asked me to marry her. There was like a preamble. There was a lead-up to it. I did not know [about it beforehand], but she was quite adamant, and she was right. This is the best choice I ever made.” Aw.

I love him. I love that Jodie proposed to him and he was like “sure, that’s a great idea!” He seems exceptionally easy-going, right? With Diane, we always knew that she was the anti-marriage one, and I always thought that Joshua kind of wanted to be somebody’s husband. Now he is. [insert a dozen heart emojis]

    One of the best things about Joshua Jackson is how pleased he always looks to be with his partner, first Diane, now Jodie. So many other Hollywood men are so busy preening for the camera that they virtually ignore who they’re with (e.g. Ben Affleck), but JJ always looks captivated, holds umbrellas, carries trains etc., and looks delighted to have the opportunity to do so.

    Team Pacey 4 evar!
    I’ve always liked Joshua Jackson, and seems like just the kind of guy who deserves someone as bold and amazing as Jodie Turner-Smith.

    Swoon. Pacey 😉

    This is really satisfying knowing I made the right choice crushing on Pacey many moons ago despite those struggle seasons with the teacher.

      Don’t they look spectacular together?!?! They are both stunning but also seem to be such great people!!

      BTW, my daughter proposed to her beau last month while they were on a multi state camping trip!!

    Her in the Pacey shirt is SO cute.

    What a sweet story! I read somewhere that relationships are more likely to be long term if the woman asks the man out. If that’s true, then a marriage where the woman proposes to the man must be everlasting! I also love their daughter’s name: Janie Jackson. For some reason, it strikes me as unbelievably cool.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      It is an incredibly sweet story and I have always liked him! He does seem very easy going and shows his partners that he is with them and they probably feel like he is the ultimate gentleman and he makes them feel very special!!
      I read an article the other day that they chose home birth due to the horrendous treatment of WOC in regards to childbirth, which is unacceptable here in the US. Too many WOC are not treated the same and there is a long history of racism in regards to WOC in the healthcare field. WOC aren’t taken seriously if they express pain, discomfort or are spiraling down the drain after childbirth. It’s a nasty problem in the US and there needs to be accountability and changes made. It sickens me that the lives of WOC are jeopardized every day in America.
