Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan's love story is one for the ages.
While the One Tree Hill alum and The Walking Dead actor just officially tied the knot in October, their relationship actually began about a decade ago. Over the last 10 years, the couple has welcomed two children together, and as Burton wrote on Instagram Tuesday, their love for each other has "evolved into something so much deeper." As we all prepare to enter 2020, Burton—who shares kids Gus, 9, and George, 1, with Morgan—took to social media to reflect on her on her journey, both personally and professionally.
"Ten years ago, I was pregnant, unemployed, unsure about where I was gonna live or give birth and despite the bravado I may have projected, I was scared," Burton wrote. "My whole life I'd thought I would follow the same path as everyone I'd grown up around. Have a steady job. Get married. Buy a house. Have kids. But the path didn't unfold that way at all."
"A decade later, I can look back at my younger self and say 'it's okay, honey! Happiness will surprise you! Let it!'" Burton continued. "2019 was incredibly good to our family. The wedding I thought I wanted when I was 26 was made so much sweeter by waiting."
"My love for @jeffreydeanmorgan has evolved into something so much deeper and golden," she told her fans. "Our children participated and were at our sides for all of it. It was the celebration of an entire decade."
Burton told her followers that her "entire decade" can be summed up with the couple's wedding day.
"Happy New Year, everyone. I hope your path is winding and surprising and takes you on a wild ride," the actress wrote. "Biggest Happy New year to @jeffreydeanmorgan , Gus and George. Love isn't a big enough word. Bring on the Roaring Twenties!!!! 2020!"
