Freddie Prinze Jr. Fell for Sarah Michelle Gellar Because She Ate ‘Everything’ on First Date

The romance between Sarah Michelle Gellar and her husband Freddie Prinze Jr. is the stuff dreams are made of. The Jewish actress, who is most famous for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (and will forever be in my heart because of that), married Prinze in 2002. Together, they have two children.

Recently, her husband Prinze Jr. opened up about how he fell in love with her 19 years ago. Apparently, it was all because of shellfish–and how she didn’t care about eating a lot in front of him. In a Facebook Live video the two did this past Wednesday, Prinze Jr. even mentioned how he’d gone on dates with other women in Hollywood and they would usually order a salad.

Of course, Gellar was clearly different–and didn’t care to keep up the stereotypical performance that women shouldn’t eat much on a first date. Apparently, Gellar “ate everything.” He went on to say:

“She ate everything, including a crab that they let walk across the counter, then kill while it was alive in some oil and said, ‘It’s popcorn, try.’ And she ate it without even blinking, and I was like, ‘Yo, my girl is legit.’”

So legit, their love has lasted almost 20 years. That’s true love right there. They also apparently love food too, because Prinze Jr. wrote a cookbook and Gellar started the company Foodstirs.
