Sarah Michelle Gellar is the first to admit she doesn’t always remember her wedding anniversary after 20 years of marriage to her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr.
“Today, on our 19 wedding anniversary, I would like to take this opportunity to thank @goodmorningamerica and @usweekly for alerting my #momsquad that it was indeed our anniversary, and in turn thank my #momsquad for alerting me, as I honestly thought it was tomorrow,” Michelle joked.
“Happy anniversary @realfreddieprinze today, tomorrow and any day after that I think might be our anniversary in the future,” Michelle added.
The two first met while filming the 1997 horror hit I Know What You Did Last Summer. They were then married in 2002. They share two children, a daughter Charlotte, 11, and a son Rocky, 9.
Just last year, Michelle celebrated her hubby on their 18th anniversary, jokingly calling Prinze Jr. her “favorite husband.” And in January 2020, the couple celebrated the 20-year anniversary of their very first date.
“20 years ago this week, my friend @realfreddieprinze and I were supposed to have dinner with a mutual friend from out of town,” Gellar wrote on Instagram at the time. “That friend missed her flight, but we decided to still meet and catch up.”
She added, “Now 20 years together, 17 plus married and two kids, we still go to that restaurant for dinner. So thank you @sloaney77for not showing up for dinner.”
Prinze Jr. shared in a 2016 Facebook Live interview how Gellar made an amazing first impression on their first date.
“We sat down and she ate everything,” he said, “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.’ “
The actors admitted in March how they had been friends for quite some time before their dinner date, but after that evening, something changed.
“We’ve had many dinners before. We were supposed to go with someone else, and that a third person didn’t make it out and we decided to still go,” Gellar said. “We were just two people at dinner catching up. We had a long car ride and a long dinner, and things just happened.”
“I didn’t go on dates with other girls nor did I even want to pursue dates with other girls,” he continued. “One day, I just knew we’re going to get married and that I was going to propose. I didn’t know when or how.”
