Joshua Jackson reveals this woman Jodie Turner-Smith didn’t want to wait until her life was over before she knew if it would be or if she was going to be sorry.

The 43-year-old Dawson’s Creek alum was a guest on the Tonight Show on Monday, July 19, where he told the host Jimmy Fallon that it was the Queen & Slim star who proposed to him and not the other way around.

When Jimmy asked Joshua if he always knew he and Jodie were getting married, the actor replied, “I knew the moment she asked me.” Jimmy seemed stunned and Joshua continued, “She asked me, yes – on New Year’s Eve. We were in Nicaragua. It was very beautiful, incredibly romantic. We were walking down the beach and she asked me to marry her. “

The confused hostess wondered if she had just asked out of the blue what the Dr. Death Star replied, “It was like a preamble. But when asked if he knew the big question was coming, Joshua clarified, “I didn’t know, but she was pretty persistent and she was right. This is the best choice I’ve ever made.”
