Born on March 8, 1976, to an actor and comedian father, Freddie Prinze Jr. attended three schools as a child. When he graduated from high school in 1994, he moved to Los Angeles to focus on his acting career.

He starred in one episode of "Family Matters: The Gun" in 1995, and even though he had a four-line part, it was his break. He appeared in "ABC Afterschool Specials: Too Soon for Jeff" the following year and in "Detention: The Siege at Johnson High" in 1997.

Prinze also starred in "I Know What You Did Last Summer," where he met Gellar. Gellar is an award-winning actress who was born on April 14, 1977. An agent discovered her when she was four, and she first starred in "An Invasion of Privacy."

When Prinze and Gellar met on the set of "I Know What You Did Last Summer," they instantly connected and could talk about life, among other things, even though they had different philosophies on everything.

However, Prinze thought Gellar was too skinny, so he offered to cook for her leading to a weekly barbecue gathering at her house with his cousins and her friends. This was the beginning of their friendship.

In January 2000, they had a fumbled dinner date, which transitioned into a relationship. Despite the accidental first date, the couple became engaged in 2001 and had a destination wedding in September 2002.

In 2002, they also starred as Fred and Daphne in "Scooby-Doo" and "Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed" in 2004. Prinze and Gellar revealed that because they started as friends first, it has helped their relationship over the years.

When asked about the key to a happy marriage, Prinze said they still make each other laugh, which was a critical factor. Today, they share two kids, and their relationship is growing stronger.

Prinze once revealed that even though they are strict with their children, they ensure the kids grow up to be kind to others. Gellar said:

"We talk to our children all the time, and I always say that I don't care if they're the smartest in the class, I don't care if they're the fastest, I care that they're kind."

The couple also prefers to keep the kids' lives away from the spotlight. Prinze also said that the children could follow in their footsteps, but that would happen only when they turn 18 because they are not trying to make money off their kids.

Gellar also revealed that they were not letting their kids be on social media, and they love to spend family time together. They would sometimes take a walk as a family, walk the dogs, play football, or a board game.

Prinze and Gellar also ensure that their kids are involved in the kitchen, the couple doesn't use their phones during family time, and when they are free, they take family vacations.
