Danielle Fishel is sneaking in a wedding before she starts filming “Girl Meets World,” but to her this will be her second set of nuptials. Even though the former “Boy Meets World” star has never tied the knot before, she says she’ll always count Ben Savage as her first husband.
“[Savage] will always be my first husband. Any time I’m around Ben, I feel like I’m at my most comfortable because we’ve been together for 20 years, so it’s been nice to be back together,” Fishel tells Us Weekly.
Apparently this is something that her fiancé Tim Belusko has come to terms with. “He totally accepts that,” Fishel says. “I mean, he knows that Ben and I have been together for a long time as an on-screen couple and to a certain extent when you’ve been with someone for 20 years like that it’s impossible to have none of that rub off a little bit in person.”
Fishel says that she and Savage have been trying to create a family with their new “Girl Meets World” costars offscreen so everything feels comfortable when they come together in November onscreen and start filming.
“Ben and I take the kids out for dinner occasionally. We’ve tried to bond, and I think we’re already a real-life family so it’s going to be nice,” she says.
Of her wedding, Fishel admits it will be somewhat non-traditional, at least in terms of her dress. “Midnight blue is my main color. The color I’m wearing, basically,” she says. “I think it’s perfect for a this-time-of-year wedding. Kind of big, like 250 people. It’s going to be really fun! I’m really excited about it.”
“Girl Meets World” will premiere in 2014 on The Disney Channel.
