Amanda Seyfried and her husband Thomas Sadoski are one of those lowkey couples who manage to go under the radar, but who we're actually quite interested in.
Amanda is best known for her roles in Mamma Mia! and Mean Girls, as well as Letters To Juliet and Dear John. Thomas, meanwhile, is best known for his role as Don Keefer in the HBO series The Newsroom, as well as playing Matt Short in Life in Pieces. But how did they meet, and what's their relationship timeline up to this point?
May 2015 - Amanda and Thomas meet on set of a play in New York, The Way We Get By. Both are currently in relationships, but Thomas is full of admiration for Amanda, telling New York's Pix 11 at the time: "I feel like the luckiest guy in New York right now... One of the great American playwrights, one of the great American directors and a perfect scene partner... I'm a pretty happy guy."

July 2018 - Amanda opens up about first meeting Thomas with Net-A-Porter explaining that when they met on the play, "We were both in bad relationships."
She insists they were friends and, "never flirted, never disrespected his wife. That was another reason why I thought, later on, that I could marry him." When their relationships both ended, Seyfried suggested Sadoski for her love interest in The Last Word, which is where their relationship blossomed: "It was amazing. It felt healthy and freeing and clean. We can tell the story without any guilt."

Sharing a statement via charitable organisations INARA and War Child, the couple wrote, "Since the birth of our daughter three years ago our commitment to the innocent children that are so brutally affected by conflict and war has been a driving force in our lives. With the birth of our son the work of INARA and War Child has become our North Star."
For now it sounds like the Sadoski-Seyfrieds are a happy little family of four, but who knows what other surprises they might drop on us?
