Freddie Highmore Casually Dropped Major News and ‘The Good Doctor’ Fans Are Losing It
Season 5 of ABC’s hit medical drama The Good Doctor returned with an unexpected twist — both in the show and in real life.
Ahead of the new season premiering on Monday, a two-minute trailer teased that The Good Doctor would pick up at Shaun (Freddie Highmore) and Lea (Paige Spara)’s wedding. Alas, it ended up only being a dream sequence. But after fans watched the beginning of the fifth season, Freddie Highmore himself stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! and shared that he has already walked down the aisle off the small screen.
In the middle of Freddie telling a story, host Jimmy Kimmel got distracted when he spotted a gold band on the 29-year-old British actor’s left hand. “I’m looking at your wedding ring right now,” he said. “That’s a wedding ring, yes?”

“Yes, it is a wedding ring. Yes, I got married,” Freddie said. “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.”
He continued: “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 a Brit can be, and I’m married to a very wonderful woman now, so yes I feel very happy.”
The Charlie and The Chocolate Factory star also revealed that his wife, who he married this past summer, is also British but didn’t share more details about her.
Needless to say, fans were both elated and in disbelief after hearing Freddie subtly drop this personal news. “I can’t believe he’s actually married 😭 our little Charlie is all grown up,” one person wrote. “I’m so happy for Freddie. He deserves every bit of happiness,” another added. “I feel so old, I grew up with Freddie Highmore by watching his movies like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Spiderwick Chronicles. I can’t believe he’s a married man,” a different fan commented.
While Freddie’s wife’s identity isn’t known, the Bates Motel actor did announce that he’s currently filming season 6 of The Good Doctor. Interestingly, there hasn’t been official word from ABC that the series was renewed again, so thanks for the intel, Freddie!
