  • Joshua Jackson just revealed how his wife Jodie Turner-Smith proposed to him in Nicaragua.
  • "She asked me - yeah, on New Year's Eve," the actor said during "The Tonight Show" on Monday.
  • He thanked Jimmy Fallon for the opportunity to clear up "some misconceptions."

Joshua Jackson says that not only did his wife Jodie Turner-Smith propose to him, but that she was "adamant" about their engagement.

The "Dawson's Creek" actor appeared on the "The Tonight Show" Monday and told the host Jimmy Fallon about "the best choice [he] ever made."

"She asked me, yeah, on New Year's Eve," Jackson gushed. "We were in Nicaragua. It was very beautiful, incredibly romantic. We were walking down the beach, and she asked me to marry her. There was, like, a preamble. There was a lead-up to it … I did not know, but she was quite adamant, and she was right."

"Thank you [Jimmy Fallon] for having me on the show," Jackson said later on Twitter. "And giving me the opportunity to clear up some misconceptions about my wedding proposal."

The couple kept details of their relationship very private during its early stages. Paparazzi spotted the couple picking up a marriage license in 2019, but at the time their engagement hadn't been publicly confirmed.

Earlier this week, Jackson told Insider that he and Turner-Smith had a "three-night stand" the first time they met.

"It was sealed with a kiss that night and then we didn't leave each other's sides for, well, three years now," Jackson said in an interview with Insider.

Jackson is currently starring as the murderous spinal surgeon Christopher Duntsch on Peacock's true-crime drama "Dr. Death," based on the podcast of the same name.
