FREDDIE Highmore has lived most of his life in the spotlight after making his big screen debut aged just seven.
However, he prefers to keep his personal life strictly under wraps – leaving fans stunned when he unexpectedly announced that he was now a married man.
Who is Freddie Highmore’s wife?
Despite his lengthy career on-screen, not much is known about Freddie Highmore’s life behind the camera.
The 29-year-old star of The Good Doctor has kept all of his previous romances under wraps.
And – up until recently – most fans assumed that the star was a single man.
But in a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Freddie dropped a bombshell.
After TV host Kimmel pointed out that Freddie was wearing a ring, the star responded: “Yes, it is a wedding ring. I got married.”
He went on to explain, “ever since I started wearing this ring people have been asking me if I’m married so I figured I should clarify it.”
Why is Freddie Highmore keeping his wife’s identity under wraps?
Despite confirming his relationship status, it seemed clear that Freddie didn’t want too share too many personal details about his marriage.
Freddie didn’t reveal the identity of his new bride, but described her as a “wonderful woman” and clarified that he was “very happy”.
He also said, “I’m not gonna jump up and down on the couch on the talk show and express my excitement that way”, a reference to Tom Cruise’s 2005 Oprah appearance.
Jokingly, British-born Freddie added: “I know you do that in America.”
