Kayla Wallace Posted a Video on Instagram & Wrote: ‘Forever’
Wallace shared the announcement on December 23 when she posted a video, tagged Kevin McGarry in it, and wrote: “Forever.” The video showed her wearing an engagement ring and then panned up to reveal the two of them kissing.
Friends, colleagues, and followers flooded the couple with congratulatory messages.

Pascale Hutton (Rosemary on “When Calls the Heart”) also replied to the engagement video, writing: “Beautiful!!!! Congratulations 🥂❤️”
Fans also flooded them with congratulations.

The Couple First Went Public With Their Relationship in 2020
In November 2020, McGarry posted photos on Instagram showing the two stars together, which kicked off rumors that they were dating.
He simply wrote, “Photo evidence,” seemingly confirming for the first time that they were indeed a couple. Wallace reposted the same photo.
Before they went public, a source confirmed with ET Online in November 2020 that the two had recently started dating and were very happy.
Since that moment, they haven’t been shy about sharing their love for each other to the world.
Just before Christmas 2020, Wallace shared a photo of an ornament with a picture of the two of them. She wrote: “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
Before filming started for season 9 of “When Calls the Heart,” McGarry shared a photo on May 30 with Wallace and wrote: “Ride or ☠️.”
Fans have even suggested that the characters Nathan and Fiona might date in the series, but in season 9, Nathan was more interested in Mei Sou and Faith.
Although their characters aren’t dating in the series, the couple has portrayed other characters who are romantically involved in Hallmark movies. The two starred together in “Feeling Butterflies” along with the Christmas in July movie, “My Grown-Up Christmas List.”
