The Clinical Dietitian Is Committed to Building a Career As an Actress and Social Media Content Creator
Jordan Fisher’s wife is trained as a clinical dietitian.

Ellie Wood and Jordan Fisher Had Known Each Other Since They Were Kids But Only Began Dating In 2017
Ellie and Jordan were both raised in Birmingham and had known each other for many years before they entered into a romantic relationship. They met when they were still kids. According to some accounts, the actor was only 13 years old, which means that Ellie was roughly a nine-year-old girl, when they met.
It is said that they met at a theatre camp and have been inseparable since then. We know that Fisher was a member of a youth program in Birmingham known as the Red Mountain Theatre Company. So it is probably the theatre that brought them together.
While they had known each other since they were kids and had been friends for years, it was in 2017 that their friendship morphed into a romantic relationship. Fisher disclosed in one of his many interviews that being friends for so many years made dating easy for them. Two months into the relationship, he was certain that she is her life partner.
They Got Engaged In May 2019 and Walked Down The Aisle In November 2020

He surprised Ellie Woods with a proposal in May 2019 at her parents’ beach house in Birmingham.

Following their engagement, they started planning for a wedding that was meant to take place on the 24th of July 2020. But due to the Coronavirus pandemic, they were forced to postpone it. Later that year, precisely on the 21st of November, they got married in a private ceremony. The event witnessed by only close members of their families took place at the Magic Kingdom at Walk Disney World Resort.
