Freddie Highmore revealed his marriage in an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! last Monday, September 27.
The star of The Good Doctor described his wife as “a very wonderful woman.”
This was after host Jimmy Kimmel pointed out his wedding ring.
Highmore told Kimmel,
“Yes, I got married. It’s funny ever since I’ve been wearing this ring, people have been asking me if I’m married, so I figured I should clarify it,”
However, Highmore neither disclosed the identity of his wife nor how they met, only revealing that she is also British.
He added, referring to Tom Cruise’s marriage announcement during The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2005,
“I’m not going to jump up and down on the couch on the talk show and express my excitement that way. I know that you do that in America, but I’m as happy as a Brit can be and I’m married so yes, I feel very happy,””
Moreover, Highmore is still getting used to the vocabulary of marriage.
Furthermore, he described the term “a married man” as old while the term “my wife” as possessive.
“We don’t really use that yet, but we just point to the rings and be like, ‘Here, look, make or draw your own conclusions,'”See Also

From 2013 to 2017, he portrayed Norman Bates in the psychological horror-drama series Bates Motel.

For five seasons, Highmore has been portraying the young resident surgeon diagnosed with autism.
