Jordan Fisher may be stealing hearts as John Ambrose McClaren, Lara Jean's childhood crush, in To All the Boys I've Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You. But in real life, he's engaged to his own childhood love, actress Ellie Woods. Below, everything to know about the recent University of Alabama graduate and her longtime relationship with Fisher.
She graduated from the University of Alabama last year.
When People reported Fisher and Woods' engagement in May 2019, the outlet noted that she would graduate from the University of Alabama later that year. In an interview with Alabama Living, Fisher confirmed that his future bride was studying clinical dietetics in college.
Woods also has a creative side, Fisher confirmed to Us Weekly. "We grew up in a theater conservatory together, so she knows and respects and loves art and loves what I do and has been part of my career and my journey since the beginning," he told the outlet.
In late January, she shared a post on Instagram that read, "The past month has been a dream. I’ve been so blessed to be able to travel before @jordan_fisher and I start this new chapter. Post grad life is going to be challenging and exciting. I’m going to miss my friends and family in Birmingham, but I also can’t wait to see what waits for me in New York! It’s safe to say this life is going to be great!"
The longtime couple has been friends since childhood.
Just as Lara Jean and John Ambrose McClaren's relationship began when they were kids, so does Fisher's real-life love. Twenty-five-year-old Fisher told People that he and Woods, 21, "were best friends growing up," meeting in Birmingham, Alabama, when he was just 13. The couple began dating in 2017, Fisher telling the outlet he knew Woods was "the one" about "two months into dating."
He later explained to Us Weekly, “We’ve been best friends for over a decade before we started dating, and so there was a pretty easy transition into going into dating, and then it didn’t take any time at all for me to know she was my person.”
Fisher proposed to Woods in 2019.
Fisher popped the question to Woods in May 2019. He proposed to Woods in their hometown of Birmingham, getting down on one knee at her parents' beach house. “It was the biggest surprise of my life!” Woods told People about the proposal. “I’m a very hard person to surprise so the fact that he pulled it off, kudos to you, babe.”
Fisher shared a video of the intimate moment on Instagram writing, "5/20/19 - I asked my best friend a question...and she said yes. 😍 I love you so much, Ellie Woods. Can’t wait to make you my wife MY WIFE."
According to Woods' Instagram, a 2020 wedding date is likely. In December 2019, she captioned a shot of the couple, "Mr. and Mrs. Fisher. Coming in 2020."
She vlogs on YouTube.
When Woods isn't traveling the world with Fisher, she sometimes posts vlogs to her YouTube channel. In the past, she's posted about everything from their engagement to her 21st birthday party.
She's one of Fisher's biggest fans.
When it comes to Fisher's career, Woods is ever the supportive partner. She recently attended the To All the Boys I've Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You premiere alongside Woods, and posted a congratulatory Instagram when he was announced as the new lead in Broadway's Dear Evan Hansen.
When Fisher won Dancing With the Stars in 2017, Fisher spoke to People about Woods' long-distance excitement for him. “She’s freaking out right now about 2,000 miles away,” he told the outlet. “She’s buried in books at the moment, but it’s the same thing—being able to have somebody that you love and that loves you and can accept all of the things you have to give them after a long, hard day of rehearsal, it’s unbelievable.”
