On-screen Caitriona Balfe is leading a blissful marital relationship with Sam Heughan (Jamie Frasher) in the hard-hitting series Outlander. However, in real life, Balfe’s husband Tony McGill is her prince charming.
The actress announced her marriage to her musician-hubby Antony “Tony” McGill back in 2019. But the fans are now curious to know are Tony McGill and Caitriona Balfe still married.
Let us try to find out everything about their hush-hush married life!
When Did Caitriona Balfe and Her Husband Tony McGill Get Married? Their Stunning Wedding
Balfe tied the knot with Tony McGill, a music producer on 10th August 2019. Their low-key wedding ceremony took place at St. Mary’s Church in Bruton, Somerset, in the United Kingdom.
Moreover, the wedding was officiated by Rev. Louis Beasley-Suffolk performing a Roman Catholic service. People magazine also reports that Balfe’s reel love interest Sam also attended the nuptials. The actor wore a gray suit, blue and black tie, taking an umbrella on the right hand and a drink on the left hand for the pose.
Heughan posted a photo on Instagram straight from the nuptials with the caption, “Remarkable weekend. ☂️💞🍾🎊 Wonderful tailoring @alfreddunhill.”
Shortly after the ceremony, Balfe headed out for shooting the fifth season of Outlander. We can say, the honeymoon is still on hold for the duo.
No doubt the husband and wife are looking pretty happy together and we wish them years of happiness as a married couple.

Is Caitriona’s on-screen romantic partner Sam Heughan dating anyone?
Before Balfe’s engagement to Tony, the terrific romance Heughan shares with Balfe on-screen made many wonders whether they are also special beyond the camera. But, they are just close friends off-screen.
In an interview with Parade in October 2018, Balfe addressed the rumors,
There’s a small vocal group that really wanted it, which is just a testament to the characters that we portray, that the love story is so inspiring and so aspirational that people just really wanted to believe in it. And that’s a nice thing. But I think things are pretty clear now that I’m engaged to someone else. Everyone gets it now.
While Balfe is leading a happy married life with her hubby, Heughan still remains single at present. But, it doesn’t mean that the actor didn’t have any romantic affairs in the past. Sam previously dated actress MacKenzie Mauzy. He was also rumored to be dating Cody Kennedy and a budding actress Amy Shiels.
