After a 17-year relationship (including 14 years of marriage!), it might seem like Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar have been together forever, but like any couple, it all started with a date. In a recent Facebook Live, Sarah Michelle Gellar brought her beloved hubby on stage to answer a few fan questions, and Prinze Jr. ended up revealing how he knew Gellar was "the one" on their very first dinner outing.

After going on dates with a "handful" of Hollywood actresses, Prinze Jr. noticed an unsettling pattern. "They would never eat what I would eat," said the star, and "you have to have that in common with me if we're going to get along."


But like a woman after our own hearts, that didn't fly with Gellar. "She ate everything, including a crab that they let walk across the counter, then kill while it was alive in some oil, and said, 'It's popcorn, try,'" the actor recalled. "And she ate it without even blinking, and I was like, 'Yo, my girl is legit.'"


Well if that isn't a true declaration of love, we aren't sure what is.


Of course, it makes sense that the couple would bond over their culinary interests. Gellar heads lifestyle company Foodstirs, while Prinze Jr. is launching a new cookbook called Back to the Kitchen.


 And, as they (should) say: The couple that eats together, stays together.
