The Real Reason Walton Goggins Fell in Love with His Wife Nadia
Walton Goggins has been married to his wife Nadia Conners for a decade now. The enduring relationship started from what Goggins would recall as an awkward first date.
The pair were set up by a mutual friend, but Goggins had no idea about it. He thought he was attending a business dinner to collect funds for his movie.
But, amidst the ongoing meet-up, the famed actor realized that a "beautiful woman" had approached him.
She introduced herself to him as Nadia Conners, sat beside him, and bluntly stated, "Well, tell me about you."
Confused, Goggins talked about his project, but Conner unhesitantly interjected him. This time, she made him clear she wanted to know him personally.
Although still confused, the 50-year-old started talking about himself and listened to what Conners had to say about her. At the end of her conversation, Conners made Goggins drop her home and even take her number.
The following day, the actor called her, and the duo started hanging out.
And while Goggins believed it was solely Collins who made the first step, it took him almost six months to realize that they were initially set for a blind date. Yet, despite the unclarity, he still fell in love with the film director.

When their son turned 6-months-old, the pair tied the knot through an intimate wedding ceremony in August. They married in their backyard in front of only three people, including their newborn.
The lovebirds renewed their vows years later, on November 9, 2019. "Truthfully, it felt like we were marrying for the first time," Conners wrote on an Instagram post, announcing the big news.
She recounted how they had no guests at their first wedding and revealed that they invited more friends to their surprise celebratory ceremony. "It was the dream wedding," she stressed, elaborating that it felt great.
Goggins also shared a similar sentiment, posting a gallery of pictures from the celebration on Instagram.
