Chad Michael Murray has a love story straight out of a fairy tale.
On the set of their 2013 TV programme, Chosen, the Cinderella Story actor first met Sarah Roemer, the woman he would later wed. The stars revealed in January 2015 that they had married and were expecting their first child together, proving that what began as a brief affair had become a long-lasting relationship.
Murray and Roemer currently share two children: a son born in 2015 and a daughter born in 2017. The One Tree Hill alum revealed on Instagram in July 2023 that he and Roemer were expecting their third child. The ultra-private couple has not revealed the names of either of their kids or publicly shown portraits of them, but Murray did suggest that baby No.
“Wifo- Since the day you entered it, the world has become lighter and more radiant. You’ve allowed that light to penetrate our small pack,” he said in an Instagram post.

She was born in San Diego
Murray and Roemer are both Virgos because Murray was born on August 24, 1981, and Roemer was born on August 28, 1984, in San Diego.
Even though she graduated from high school in San Diego, she relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a modelling career. She later made appearances in a variety of well-known magazines, such as GQ, Cosmopolitan, Maxim, and Esquire.
She is an actress
Roemer’s breakthrough television performance was in the 2010 film The Event, in which she costarred with Jason Ritter as Leila Buchanan, the central character. She later played Avery Sharp in the two-season television drama Chosen, which ran from 2013 to 2014. She has also appeared as a guest on Daybreak and Hawaii Five-O.
Her debut motion picture was 2006’s Wristcutters: A Love Story. She also starred in Manhattan Undying, Fired Up!, Hachi: A Dog’s Tale, and Disturbia, for which she received a nomination for best kiss alongside Shia LaBeouf at the MTV Movie Awards. Survive the Game, a 2021 movie starring Bruce Willis and Murray, was her most recent release.
She met Murray on set in 2013
When Murray joined the second season of Chosen in 2013, the former model got to know him. Although they were married in September 2014, the two have never disclosed any specifics of their nuptials in public. In fact, it wasn’t until they announced they were expecting their first child together in January 2015 that people found out they were married.
“Chad and Sarah are extremely happy and excited, and enjoying their life together,” Murray’s representative said in a statement to PEOPLE at the time.
Following the announcement of the wedding, Murray told E! News, “I’m a romantic. I’m a homebody. I desire the centre. I usually keep things quiet. I cherish my life. I reserve that portion for myself.
Roemer came before Murray, who was briefly
She and Murray share two kids and are expecting a third
In May 2015, Murray and Roemer welcomed a boy into the world. In a tweet announcing the new member, the Riverdale actor expressed regret for having to cancel on Jim Kelly’s charity event.
“Sry This year in Buffalo, I’m missing the @JimKellyInc charity event. My favourite event to go to, however we now have a kid, which is a blessing. God’s greatest gift,” Murray tweeted, adding, “Sarah and I couldn’t be happier and intend 2 spend many a day enjoying family outings & watching @buffalobills football! & currently @Chargers.”
A source told PEOPLE in November 2016 that the couple was expecting a daughter as their second child. Murray wrote a poem to Roemer while she was expecting, which he then shared online.
She Glows Always… Please excuse me, but I must say, I
On March 14, 2017, Murray announced the birth of his daughter on Instagram, writing the following statement under a picture of the infant gripping his finger: “Don’t worry little girl, you may hang on as tight as you want for as long as you want, I’m already yours & I’ll never let go. Two amazing women are now a part of my life. We are both fortunate, my son and I.
Roemer and Murray do exchange postings with their kids on their social media accounts, although not publicly disclosing their children’s names or displaying photographs of their faces. The snuggles are real, Murray captioned a picture of a priceless father-daughter interaction from March 2021. #DaddyDuty is the best responsibility there is. “Love our family,” said @rooeemer.
The couple announced the expansion of their family in July 2023. In the Instagram caption of a picture of Roemer holding her growing baby, Murray wrote: Baby #3 is loaded Anyone aware of any brand-new baby technology? We haven’t had one for a while.
A few days later, the actor teased the gender of their unborn child by posting a video depicting the family’s global travels as a memorial to Roemer. He hinted that they are having a girl by writing in the caption, “We travel this world as a little wolf pack — this baby’s been everywhere already and she’s not even on the outside:).”
She is also a dog mom
In October 2021, the Fired Up! actor and her husband welcomed Jett, a golden retriever. The lovely dog has many experiences with his parents, such as beach outings to Roemer’s homeland and car journeys through the desert. He even goes by the moniker Jetson and Jetty.
She went to her first prom as an adult
Roemer’s first prom, the oncology prom at Children’s Hospital of Orange County, was attended by Murray in June 2017. He dressed like Prince Charming from the 2004 film A Cinderella Story for the event.
Romer posted on Instagram, “I waited for a prince and he took me to my first prom. @chadmurray15 #CHOC #prom #austinames.”
She is a Buffalo Bills fan
Thanks to her husband, a Buffalo, New York native and ardent Buffalo Bills supporter, the California native is now a member of the Bills Mafia.
Roemer posted on Instagram about the Bills and noted that she was present at the second-coldest game in Buffalo history, adding that the “game was AMAZING!!” in January 2022.
She is an avid traveler
Roemer frequently shares her trip experiences on social media. She has travelled with both friends and family to countries including Paris, London, and Missouri’s Fantastic Caverns. In Wilmington, North Carolina, where Murray spent eight years filming One Tree Hill, she and Murray also go on nostalgic excursions.
When Murray or Roemer must be on location, the entire family travels together. That meant making Ontario, Canada, their home away from home throughout the summer and autumn of 2020. Additionally, they have established temporary roots in Vancouver and Puerto Rico.
In a Mother’s Day 2021 article, Murray also wrote on his family’s trips, honouring his band and their extensive travels.
Being so fortunate is a dream. Happy Mother’s Day, everybody!
