The "Crawl" actress and her husband Benjamin Walker met on "The King's Daughter" set back in April 2014. Theirs was an instant connection, and within two months of meeting, they had begun a whirlwind romance.

Speaking to Instyle, Scodelario disclosed that they started as friends, but they both realized they were attracted to each other and began dating.

A WHIRLWIND ROMANCE

Even though they lived apart for the first few months of their dating life, with Scodelario in her native London and Walker in New York, the two eventually found their way to each other after Scondelario moved to the U.S.

In December that same year, "The Choice" actor went down on one knee and presented a diamond solitaire ring to the actress. Scodelario also tattoed Walker's name on her finger to further prove her love for him.

MEET THE MAN THAT STOLE SCODELARIO'S HEART

While many may recognize the handsome actor for his roles in "Shimmer Lake" and "The Ice Road," not many realize that Walker was once Meryl Streep's son-in-law. The star was married to Mamie Gummer between 2011 and 2013.

The actor, born Benjamin Walker Davis in Cartersville, Georgia, rose to fame after appearing in the "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson" as Andrew Jackson.

He then appeared in several more big roles, including in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "In The Heart of the Sea." He has also worked on Clint Eastwood's "Flags of Our Fathers."

He has also starred in Broadway's "American Psycho," playing Patrick Bateman. But away from his successful film career, the star is a father.

Walker and "The Maze Runner: The Death Cure" star welcomed their first baby four years ago. They have never revealed their baby boy's name publicly.

And now, they are about to be second-time parents. Announcing the news on her social media, the actress looked cute in a tropical printed dress while her husband wore a classic black suit and a bowtie.
