Nicholas Gonzalez willingly uses Twitter and Instagram for communication, so if you have a thing for this hottie, you can check out what is new in his life by checking his public accounts.

Gonzalez never dreamed of an acting career. Initially, he was planning to get stuck into banking and consulting, but destiny had its way.

After a couple of theatrical and television roles, he tried on a lab coat as one of the characters in "The Good Doctor," a part which was easy for him to learn as his father and brother are surgeons.

Even though the actor is handsome and stately, his personal life isn't saturated with love affairs and juicy details that are usually discussed and captured by the mass media. 

After a five-year relationship, the actor married his girlfriend, Kelsey Crane. She is also an actress known for her roles in "Desperate Housewives" and "How I Met Your Mother." Gonzalez seems to be very romantic with his beloved.

While they were on a boat on Capri island, the actor got down on one knee with a wedding ring in hand. Of course, his now-wife accepted his proposal. A year after the wedding, a child was born into their family – their daughter Ever Lee Wilde.

Antonia Thomas as Dr. Claire Browne

Dr. Claire Browne may be emotional, but she can rule her emotions and use them to her benefit, making her such a perfect friend for Dr. Murphy. Antonia Thomas' new on-screen medical career is the one that finally gains her mom's approval over and above her previous ones.

Thomas laughed, revealing: "It's the one my mum loves and really enjoys because she wanted us to do medicine and have stable careers."

Along with the top ABC drama, the actress is famous for her role in the sitcom "Lovesick" and the series "Misfits." 

Fans mainly thought that Thomas was dating Iwan Rheon, who later gained greater popularity due to his role as Ramsay Bolton in "Game of Thrones." However, nothing was confirmed, mainly because she announced that she had a boyfriend.

Judging by her social media posts, her boyfriend could well be Michael Shelford, a London-based photographer. Fans often wonder if the actress has any plans to get engaged to Michael, but currently, the only engagement in Antonia's life is the fictional one on "The Good Doctor."

Hill Harper as Dr. Marcus Andrews

Sometimes storylines and the lives of the actors have strong connections. When Dr. Marcus Andrews and his wife started to think about adoption in real life, Hill Harper also decided to become a single father and find a child for himself.

 In 2015, Harper was encouraged by a friend to consider adoption, which he first didn't think was a good idea. In an interview, he admitted that he wanted to become a father but thought of getting married first and then starting a family with a wife.

However, after finding the child's homeless mother, his perception of parenthood became more vivid and profound. He even went to the hospital while Pierce was born and cut his cord.

 "The Good Doctor's"  'chief revealed that he named his son Pierce after the one and only Pierce Brosnan, whom he admires. The star seems very happy and claims to be thankful for getting the opportunity of fatherhood, and shares the cutest photos of his son on Instagram.

Harper is still a bachelor with a very private and mysterious personal life. He managed to keep his private life quiet for several years, but now he's spilling the tea about his relationships from the past, which include courtships with stars Taraji P. Henson and Regina Hall.

The 52-year-old actor opened up about his past dating life and even admitted to having some commitment issues. It seems like a lot has changed in the life of Harper in recent years as he was diagnosed with cancer while he was writing the book "The Wealth Cure: Putting Money in Its Place" four years ago.

Luckily, the actor got cured and now sports a clean bill of health and has been serving as a cancer advocate ever since. On top of that, Hill opened a natural skincare line after in-depth research about the effects of skincare products on a person's system.

Beau Garrett as Jessica Preston

Beau Garrett's exit after season 1 came as a real disappointment for fans, as Jessica was a beloved and robust character. Details about the actress's personal life are mostly unknown to her fans. However, the media is familiar with her romantic affair with actor and director Chris Payne Gilbert.

Although the couple didn't share much about their relationship, they didn't hesitate to hit the red carpets together for several events. Beau revealed:

"I saw his dog, and I fell in love with [it]. He was watering his plants, and I didn't see him; I saw his dog. And then I saw this gorgeous man with his shirt off, so it was like a double whammy."

Richard Schiff as Dr. Aaron Glassman

The kind trickster Dr. Aaron Glassman was portrayed by Richard Schiff, who has been well-known to Hollywood for 30 years. Since the late 80s, he has played dozens of roles on TV and the big screen.

Funny enough, Richard Schiff doesn't watch medical shows himself. In one of his interviews, he boldly revealed that by saying: "I'd never seen [Shore's show] House because I don't watch doctor shows." Anyway, he still chooses to star in them.

He met his wife, actress Sheila Kelley, a long time ago during auditions for "Antigone," and three years later, they got married. It seems like the two really get each other, as their marriage is still going strong after a healthy 22 years. Together they raised a wonderful son, Gus, and a daughter, Ruby.

Freddie Highmore as Dr. Shaun Murphy

The actor Freddie Highmore gained the love of the viewers long before his medical TV life. You'll instantly remember his childhood roles from the 2000s, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," "A Good Year," and "Finding Neverland."

Now, in his late 20s, he has become even more beloved for his roles on American TV shows –" Bates Motel" and, of course — "The Good Doctor." Surprisingly, even though he came from an acting and theatrical family, Highmore doesn't seem to have taken any special instruction in acting.

Freddie revealed that he just attended a regular school in his North London neighborhood and sometimes went to Hollywood to act in movies.

Highmore's private life remains a total mystery to the press. It is known, though, that the star is close friends with his "Bates Motel: co-star Vera Farmiga and even became the godfather to Fynn, her son with her husband, Renn Hawkey.

At various times, he has been rumored to be dating actresses in his age group. Frankly speaking, there is no information other than unfounded speculation, so there is no way we can confirm that any of these relationships were serious.
