‘This Is Us’ Star Justin Hartley on His Upcoming Wedding, Parenting a Teenager
Justin Hartley is preparing for life as a married man.
Though his character in This Is Us is a bit unlucky in love, the 40-year-old is happily engaged to fiancée Chrishell Stause IRL.
In fact, the pair is almost finished planning their wedding — which is happening later this year — but they’ve also enlisted some professional help to nail down the details.
“We’re well on our way. We’re sort of wrapping up all the planning and getting ready to get out there and seal the deal,” he told Us Weekly on Thursday, July 27.
"We obviously have our guest list and stuff. We’re having fun. She’s having fun picking out her dress.”
The 36-year-old actress also confirmed she’ll be wearing a Monique Lhuillier gown on her special day.
“So exciting!” the bride-to-be captioned a photo of a note sent to her from Monique Lhuillier with a swatch from her gown.
The couple, who met on the set of Days of Our Lives, got engaged in 2015.
"We’re doing it in the right way. We hired a very competent wedding planner,” the father of one continued.
“She’s doing all the hard stuff, so basically we just field phone calls, and go taste cake and food. We’re having a blast doing it.”
The former Revenge actor has 13-year-old daughter Isabella from his previous marriage to Lindsay Hartley, and they just celebrated her birthday at Disney World!
“Thank you @waltdisneyworld for helping make @bellajustice_hartley have the happiest 13th bday celebration!” Isabella’s stepmom-to-be shared on Instagram.
As for how he’s handling life with a teenager, the Mistresses alum confirms he’s doing OK — for now.
“It’s been about three weeks. We’ll talk in 18 months, and we’ll see what’s going on. But right now it’s great."
And, while most teenagers are angsty and moody, Justin hasn’t noticed any changes when it comes to Isabella.
“Everyone keeps telling me they turn 13, and all of a sudden, they turn into a different person,” he told People.
“I’ve got a lucky angel here. I don’t know what’s going on, but she’s fantastic.”
We can’t wait to see Justin and Chrisell on their special day!
This Is Us Season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 26 at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
