The couple said their “I do’s” in New Mexico where Ford was shooting his film, Cowboys and Aliens. The lovebirds had quite a unique official for their wedding - New Mexico governor Bill Richardson. But how did Harrison and Calista fall in love?

The sweetest love story

Calista and Harrison met at Golden Globes back in 2002. It was later reported that actor James Marsden, who was Flockhart’s former co-star, played the role of a “wingman” for the actress.

However, nobody had a clue that Ford and Flockhart started dating. The two kept their relationship secret until 2003 when Harrison revealed to Hello! that he is in love.

There were many reasons why the two dated in private for a year. It could be because the Star Wars actor was still legally married or it might be because Calista is 22 years younger than him.

Nonetheless, their romance survived the years. Ford proposed to his lady love in 2009 when the pair was on a family vacation with Calista’s son, Liam, whom she adopted shortly before her fateful meeting with Harrison.

But what is the secret to their long-lasting marriage? Flockhart once shared that she and her hubby laugh a lot so humor is very important for their relationship to thrive.
