‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3: Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas expecting first child

Snow -Mrs. Carter: Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are getting closer and closer to their own fairy-tale ending.

The couple, who both star on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” only recently celebrated their engagement, and now reps for the couple are confirming that the two are also expecting their first child together. This marks huge news for the couple, and massive congratulations have to be in order as they move forward into what has to be a pretty important stage in their lives.

We also cannot dispute the fact that this marks a huge change for “Once Upon a Time” itself, and you have to wonder if the writers knew that the two were hoping to have a child based on the trajectory of the story this season. Snow recently told Charming that she wanted to have a new child that they could raise all the way through, unlike Emma, who they were forced to give away in order to save her from the curse. The timing from that standpoint could not have been more perfect, if the writers and producers want to try and put the pregnancy into the show itself. While we don’t want to speculate too much on anything, Dallas and Goodwin’s child would probably be due around the time the season finale airs if they followed the “three-month rule” when waiting to announce their pregnancy publicly. This means that Ginnifer would be around for the majority of the season, since filming typically concludes in March or April, depending on the show.

Goodwin and Dallas remain the only stars of the show that are still in a relationship together, and while it may be cheesy, you have to wonder whether or not some of Snow White’s optimism and adoration for Charming ended up transferring over to her in the real world. We won’t apologize for being suckers for a great love story… le sigh.
