Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman met on the set of the ABC show, Revenge, in 2011, with the couple tying the knot in 2018. The couple initially kept their romance hidden from the eyes of the public and once again did the same on keeping their pregnancy a secret. VanCamp, who reprised her role as Sharon Carter / Agent 13 from the Captain America films for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier TV series, told PEOPLE that she spent quite a lot of time home with Bowman during the lockdown. "I was coming off of doing two jobs at the same time — I was doing The Falcon and Winter Soldier and The Resident, sort of burning the candle at both ends." She continued, "So the beginning [of lockdown] was very welcome. I was like, 'Okay, I actually got to just sleep for a bit,' which was amazing. Just being able to enjoy the quiet, enjoy my husband and my dog, enjoy being home, things that I hadn't had for a really long time. I did not take that for granted at all. I loved every second of it." VanCamp concluded, ​"I tend to be a little bit more on the broody side, a little bit more pensive and I don't know, more of the realist," she said. "He's more of an idealist. It's very nice to have that as a balance. I was very lucky to have such a positive person around all the time."
