Wallace & McGarry Are Dating in Real Life

Wallace and McGarry are dating in real-life, and this is their second Hallmark movie together.

Rumors started that the two were dating in November 2020 when McGarry posted on Instagram, showing photos of the two together. Before the couple went officially public, a source confirmed with ET Online in November 2020 that the two had recently started dating and were very happy.

Just before Christmas 2020, Wallace shared a photo of an ornament with the picture of the two of them. Wallace 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, 2021, with Wallace and wrote: “Ride or ☠️.”

Wallace shared a photo on Instagram of her and McGarry together right around the time they started filming season 9.

On February 14, 2022 — for Valentine’s Day — Wallace shared that her five loves are “sugar, butter, Sara Bareilles, my Roland, @kevin_mcgarry_w.” He gave her a kiss when she finished her video.

They appeared together in an interview with Entertainment Tonight for “Feeling Butterflies.”

On March 18, Wallace shared a photo of McGarry and wrote, “Sunshine of my life, the source of 99% of my laughter: my dearest, Kevin. Happy Birthday to you 💙” 

On March 23, McGarry shared a photo on Instagram with Wallace and other friends.
