It’s been about a year since When Calls the Heart fans have heard from Daniel Lissing. He portrayed the dutiful and heroic Mountie Jack Thornton through five seasons on the Hallmark Channel’s most beloved series. The actor certainly knows about making an entrance. And, the Australian star has been the subject of numerous headlines in the past 24 hours. This includes the October 24 feature in Monsters and Critics, with very delightful news.
The When Calls the Heart leading man has made it official with the love of his life. A brunette beauty named Nadia. He’s no longer on the market. And, Nadia has a dazzling ring to prove it!
A lot can happen in a year after ‘When Calls the Heart’
Many faithful “Hearties” were inconsolable upon knowing that Daniel Lissing’s character of Jack Thornton would be lost in a tragic training accident in the Northern Territories at the close of Season 5. Huge campaigns were launched to bring the character back, besieging the network. What many did not realize was that Daniel Lissing had decided on the decision to leave the drama himself. He felt he was sacrificing his personal happiness for the sake of the show.
Appearing as a united front of When Calls the Heart family in April of 2018 on “Home & Famiy,” Daniel Lissing held hands with Erin Krakow and Lori Loughlin. He explained that he had told his castmates, and the drama’s producer’s, he planned to exit the show. The heartfelt wedding of Jack and Elizabeth was intended as a gift to fans for their love and loyalty. Executive producer, Brian Bird, reflected that the beloved actors are real, human people. They have every right to make the best personal choices for themselves.
In November last year, Daniel Lissing shared that he would be spending his Christmas holidays with someone special. This year, we know that special lady’s name. And, Daniel Lissing is delighted that Nadia is wearing his ring.
Passion and diamonds
Ever since last November, and especially since the October 23 social media announcement from the actor, fans have been prowling to learn more about Nadia. The fiance and her betrothed future husband have been very protective about providing details. But, Nadia is clearly a statuesque, dark-haired beauty who enjoys travel as much as Daniel Lissing. The couple has shared posts from Las Vegas, Disney World, and the Joshua Tree National Park.
“Happy news to share…I get to marry the love of my life,” gushed Daniel Lissing, adding two hearts to the words captioning the Instagram photo of a kiss between the couple. Of course, the lovely ring was visible to all.
Nadia posted her own black and white photo of the princess-cut engagement ring, with rays of sunlight enhancing its glow. Her caption read: “Couldn’t imagine spending my life with anyone else,” to the image of clasped hands.
Lissing described the setting of the ring from Tiffany & Company, and that the proposal came on Nadia’s birthday.
Fans will recall that it was almost a year before Jack and Elizabeth kissed for the first time on When Calls the Heart. Real-life romance is moving along more swiftly for Daniel Lissing, but still proves that dreams of life-long love can come true.
