Actor Topher Grace has gone from playing a teen on That '70s Show to a married dad in real life in the time since he first appeared on television screens. Topher has recently returned to television with the ABC comedy Home Economics, which focuses on three siblings in very different tax brackets.
The actor will also reprise his role as Eric Forman on the upcoming revival That '90s Show on Netflix, where he struggles to connect with his daughter, Leia Forman. Naturally, fans want to learn more about Topher's wife IRL, model and actress Ashley Hinshaw. Here's everything you need to know about the couple and their growing family.
Topher Grace and his wife Ashley Hinshaw are expecting their third child together.
The couple has kept their personal life mostly under wraps, but there are a few sweet details to know about Topher and Ashley's romance. Ashley Hinshaw is a model and actress, most notable for her appearances on shows such as True Blood, Agent Carter, and True Detective, and in the films LOL and About Cherry.
Topher and Ashley began dating in 2014 and were engaged a year later. They married in 2016 in Montecito, Calif., and their first child Mabel Jane was born in November 2017.
The couple confirmed their second pregnancy in January 2020 at the Art of Elysium's 13th Annual celebration in Los Angeles where Ashley showed off her figure on the red carpet.
In an interview with People magazine, Topher revealed the birth of their second child happened during lockdown. "We had a kid during quarantine. Then it was a lot of changing diapers," he said.
Topher also notes that between work and home life, "Every day, I'm leaving my baby to come to work and work with two babies. In the script, it read very funny, and I've seen it now — it is very funny on-screen. But when I'm doing the scenes and my two scene partners are 9 months old, it's challenging."
Topher revealed in September 2022 on The Kelly Clarkson Show that he and Ashley were expecting their third child. He said, "We’re excited. And I’d like to take this moment on national TV to say how beautiful and amazing she is."
Topher also joked with Kelly about his friends' reactions to his growing family, saying, "Everyone says on the first baby they’re like, ‘Congratulations!’ On the second, they’re like, ‘Congratulations,’” he said, jokingly adding, “And on the third baby, it’s, ‘Congratulations?’ — with a question mark."
Currently, Ashley's due date has not been revealed.
Ashley graduated with a Bachelor's degree from California State University.
Ashley revealed via Instagram in June 2022 that she is officially a college graduate.
"Today I celebrate," she wrote shortly before the birth of baby No. 2. "I’ve spent the last five years overcoming challenge after challenge to accomplish this goal. All while juggling a career, a wedding, and having 1.99 children."
She added, "Even though #covid19 got in the way of walking across a stage to commemorate this accomplishment, I know the achievement is no less important."
Ashley also used her social media platform to encourage her followers to vote and support the Black Lives Matter movement, among other important issues. You know what they say, behind every great man is a greater woman. Topher is definitely one lucky guy!
Catch Topher in Home Economics on ABC on Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. EST, and That '90s Show on Netflix with episodes streaming Jan. 19, 2023.
