Freddie Highmore reveals he got married

Freddie Highmore, on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, made the announcement that he got married. The actor admitted that he had to clarify his marital status after the host asked him if he was wearing a wedding ring.

Freddie said, "Yes, it is a wedding ring. Yes, I got married. It's funny. Ever since I've been wearing this ring people have been asking me if I’m married, so I figured, I should clarify it."

The Good Doctor star then went on to explain,

"I'm not gonna jump up and down on the couch on the talk show and express my excitement that way. I know that you do that in America. But I'm as happy as as a Brit can be and I'm married to a very wonderful woman now, so yes I feel very happy."

Shying away from giving further details about his wife, the actor spoke about how it felt to be married.

"I just still can't get over the terminology and the vocab, like, a 'married man' just sounds very old and 'my wife' sounds very possessive," said the actor. He added, "We don't really use that yet, but we just point to the rings and be like, 'Here, look, draw your own conclusions.'"

Meanwhile, Freddie Highmore has been playing the role of Dr Shaun Murphy in the medical drama The Good Doctor since 2017. The series, which was a remake of a South Korean series of the same name, has been renewed for season 5. He is also known for his starring roles in the movies like Finding Neverland (2004), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), August Rush (2007), and The Spiderwick Chronicles (2008).

He won two consecutive Critics' Choice Movie Awards for Best Young Performer and was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his performance in The Good Doctor.
