Two men meeting and falling in love thanks to their shared experience on a CW show sounds like the plot of a thousand fan fics, but it's a beautiful reality for two former Supernatural cast members.

The actor, 45, revealed the big news on the May 15 episode of his Locked and Probably Loaded podcast with Kelly Blackheart. During the episode, he shared that he and Olsson clicked after they met and then built a strong bond over the years as their friendship evolved into something more.

“Ty and I became inseparable at the very beginning, just immediately,” Qualls shared. “And over the last 10 years our relationship evolved to what it is today, and now we’re getting married.”

The actor, who played werewolf Garth on the series, also recalled how he first met his fiancé, who played the vampire Benny on the show, at a convention for the popular CW series. He said they “didn’t know each other at all,” adding, “We maybe said three words together at the Supernatural convention, and then we went to London for four or five days afterward.”

“And then I was going to Turkey with a friend — and he is such a pure, awesome guy. He came up to us — we all went out as a group — and he was like, ‘Can I come on your trip with you?’ “ the Z Nation actor said.

“And I’m like, ‘That is so ballsy!’ I could never invite myself on somebody’s trip. ‘Cause I’d be afraid they would begrudgingly tell me yes and then not want me there. But it was just so pure and awesome, and that’s who he is,” he continued. “I didn’t know him. And it was the beginning of our friendship.”

Qualls went on to describe Olsson as one of the “most wonderful” people he’s ever met.

“It’s just so crazy that this person who was just my friend, now I think about all the time and he sends the best messages, and he supports me and loves me unconditionally in the right way," Qualls continued.

The Turning Point actor further pointed out on the podcast that he felt that “unconditional love” comes with the condition that “you treat that person with some respect and their best interests are your best interests,” and that was something Olsson did with him.

“Ty was the first person in my entire life, my entire life that [I] ever had that with,” Qualls said. “I say just a friend. [He is] the best friend I ever had, and now we’re going to be old men together, which is so crazy.”

Following the news, several fans on the show congratulated the couple on social media. One person wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter): “Congratulations DJ Qualls and Ty Olsson what a time we live in.”

In response to the fan comments, Olsson shared on X on Thursday, May 16, “Thank you everyone for all the love and support and kindness today :) sending you all some love and hugs.”

See JLO, this is what a real, authentic relationship looks like. Love can't be forced.

Congrats to the couple.
