The pair were initially introduced by Burton’s former “One Tree Hill” costar Danneel Harris and her husband Jensen Ackles. 

“Twelve years ago today, @jensenackles and @danneelackles512 made me go on a blind date,” wrote Burton, captioning a selection of cute photographs. 

“The smokin hot @jeffreydeanmorgan showed up and it was game over,” continued the actress. “Here’s to being crazy kids, living all over the country, giving birth to two doppelgängers, getting grey hair and still being totally inappropriate…. together.”
