Jack Donnelly & Girlfriend Engaged To Get Married | How Dating Evolved With Time
Rising to fame with a prominent role of Jason in the BBC's Greek mythology series Atlantis, English actor Jack Donnelly has made headlines both professionally and personally.
While his female fans may be left heartbroken with his relationship status, he is a married man now. He tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend and finally went off-market. For his admirers, it could be the end of the story as he is already spoken for.
Engaged With Longtime Girlfriend; Father To Girlfriend's Son
Jack Donnelly, who is known for his notable appearance on House of Anubis, is no more a single man. He was dating the love of his life Malin Akerman, a Swedish-Canadian actress, known for her appearances in several Canadian productions.
His then-girlfriend previously had a rocky relationship with her former husband of seven years, Roberto Zincone. After the end of marriage in 2013, Malin was totally focused on raising up her son Sebastian, who she shared with Roberto.
Malin, who has a net worth of $10 million, was totally off the dating game after the split, and the other guy whom she would next date would have to compete with her son for attention.
Jack, who stands at the height of 5ft 9 (175.3 cm), was fortunate enough to find his place in her heart. Jack's brilliant connection with her son and herself, did the trick and the duo started dating in 2016.
The A Royal Winter actor had actually known Malin for almost four years before dating but they never met in person. Jack happened to be her sister's boyfriend's friend from drama school in England but had not seen him.
However, in the middle of 2016, Jack crossed the Atlantic and finally met Malin. She was awestruck by his boyish looks and awestruck with his charming persona, which left her wondering if he had always been that cute. The two built a strong rapport after meeting only once, with Jack leaving his girlfriend swooning.
After wowing Malin, it was the actor's turn to impress his then fiancee's son. He was really brilliant when it came to dealing with her son, Sebastian. Seeing the connection they shared was really heart-warming for Malin. She said while gushing about her partner,
“He was brilliant with my son and that was it, and my heart melted.”
While their relationship was budding, the pair kept their relationship off the radar until the couple was spotted sharing some public display of affection. They came forth with their romance in March 2017 after they were photographed locking the lips in Puerto Rico.
The pair had attended an event celebrating Ariana Rockefeller's collection of handbags where the blonde beauty and the Atlantis star were witnessed kissing. A few weeks later Jack and Malin along with Sebastian were seen having a quality time together.

The family of three were out for a movie at the Arclight in Hollywood. After dating for months, Jack was determined to have Malin for a lifetime and presented her with a ring. He asked her to marry him and be his wife.
The Swedish actress said "Yes" to the proposal and by October 2017, the couple was engaged. They announced the engagement through an Instagram post.
Well, the couple sure seems to hit it off not long after they took the next step in their relationship.
Romantic Vacation; Pre-Wedding Plans
The couple delighted their fans with their intimate pictures after the engagement, whether that be a romantic getaway to Mexico or a casual stroll around the beach.
Adding to it, the pair even made an appearance during the wedding of Rose Leslie & Kit Harington. Close friends to Mr. and Mrs. Jon Snow, the couple was happy to mingle around with Hollywood royalties at the wedding.
After the one year anniversary of their engagement, the couple looked very much in love as they strolled on the street of Los Angeles on 10 October 2018. While his wife-to-be was grabbing her lunch in Studio City, the pair was spotted holding hands
Also, on his 33rd birthday, the Swedish-born beauty Instagrammed the glimpse of her family outing with a beautiful note.
