Ginnifer Goodwin Bio & Age
Jennifer Michelle “Ginnifer” Goodwin was born on May 22, 1978, in Memphis, Tennessee. Her mother, Linda, was a housewife who later worked for Apple and FedEx, while her father owned a recording studio. The actress changed her name from “Jennifer” to “Ginnifer”, not only to emphasize her name but also to help people pronounce her name correctly with her South American regional dialect. She has a younger sister, Melissa, who is a stop-motion animator and has appeared in several shows, including “Robot Chicken”.
Ginnifer Goodwin is of Jewish descent, with her mother being of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. For this reason, she attended synagogue on Saturdays and the Unitarian Church on Sundays. She was also baptized and had a bat mitzvah service. From an early age, she was active in the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization – the Jewish youth movement – in the Jewish community center of Memphis. She was also affiliated with the North American Federation of Temple Youth.
She attended St. Mary’s Episcopal School in Memphis and later the Collegiate School in Lausanne, which she graduated from in 1996. Afterward, she attended the famous Hochschule in Hannover to study theatre. However, she was only in Hanover for one year before she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Boston University.
During her studies at Boston University, she appeared in a number of student/short films and local stage productions. She graduated with honors and then moved to England to study at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford Upon-Avon. She also received an “Acting Shakespeare Certificate” from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.
She was awarded the “Excellence in Acting” by the Bette Davis Foundation: The Bette Davis Foundation’s “Promise of Career” Award.

Ginner Godwin went out with Joey Kern – an actor best known for his roles in Cabin Fever and Grind – and the two were hired in 2010. However, they ended their engagement in 2011, and shortly afterward she began her relationship with Josh Dallas, whom she would later marry.

Weight Loss After Baby
Like many women, Ginnifer Goodwin gained weight during her pregnancy. She gained noticeable weight during her first pregnancy, which was noted in the show “Once upon a time”, on which she worked at that time. With a lot of hard work and dedication, however, she managed to lose weight.
But unlike most celebrities, Ginnifer was not able to lose weight quickly, but she took her time and effort, especially when it came to her diet.
As a new mother, she did not attach too much importance to getting back into shape. Instead, she decided to put her baby’s health and her relationship with him first, before focusing on her body. Now Ginnifer has lost all her weight during pregnancy and is currently rocking a slim body.
The actress has admitted that she uses “Weight Watchers” to keep her figure in check.
The actress weighs 60 kg (132 pounds) and is 168 cm (5 ft 6 in) tall. Her body measurements are 35-26-35 in (84-66-89 cm). Her dress size is 6 (USA) or 36 (EU), her shoe size is 7 (USA), or 37.5 (EU) and her bra size is 34A.
