Is Ben Hollingsworth married?

Hollingsworth was formerly in a relationship with Canadian actress Nina Dobrev, who is known for her roles in The Vampire Diaries and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

The pair had been roommates before they started dating, and their relationship lasted for three years, from 2006 until 2009.

Hollingsworth went on to date Nila Myers – a fitness instructor who teaches the Bar Method and has a huge following online following. And in 2012 they tied the knot.

On his wedding day, Hollingsworth tweeted: “I woke a boy and will go to sleep a man. I am so lucky to have found the woman I love and I want to grow old with.”

He had spent time shadowing ER doctors for his role in Code Black and was determined to help deliver his first son.

He said he was the first person to touch his baby, and he has had an inseparable relationship with Hemingway ever since.

In 2018 he said he and his wife were “beyond words” as they welcomed their second son, Gatsby, into the world.

His first son Hemingway had been looking forward to taking on the role of big brother, and he had been practising his skills by looking after a toy doll in the run-up to Gatsby’s birth.

He revealed his baby’s name was inspired by a hotel in Paris, which had also been called Gatsby.

The star is on Instagram and his bio says: “Father of 3. Husband of 1. Overactive imagination since 1984. Brady on #VirginRiver.”

One of his most recent posts was of himself with his daughter in the snow, and he said: “In love with our newest snowflake.”

His baby daughter, Juniper Bloom, was born on October 15, 2020 and the star said: “Not a day goes by that I don’t feel grateful for the family I have. “Like many new Dads, I spent the days leading up to the birth running around trying to gain some sort of control of an uncontrollable situation.”

He later shared a beautiful family photo of himself, his wife and a tiny Juniper in Nila’s arms.

In November he shared an old photo from his wedding day, saying it was the best commitment of his life. He said: “Together we navigate the gray skies and smooth waters with love, gratitude and optimism. We’ve hit our share of roadblocks and steep drops but we’ve never let fear define our route.”
