Josh Dallas: Ginnifer Goodwin Is the ‘Greatest Mother That I Know’

04/27/2015 at 09:00 PM ET

Parenthood has been a fairy tale for Once Upon a Time star Josh Dallas, and the first-time father knows that much of that is due to his wife and costar, Ginnifer Goodwin.

“It’s extraordinary because she is, literally, the greatest mother that I know,” the actor told PEOPLE while attending The John Varvatos 12th Annual Stuart House Benefit in West Hollywood on Sunday.

“It’s extraordinary to have your partner, who you’ve known all this time, blossom into this woman … who is so nurturing, so caring and just so cool. She’s so cool and she’s a cool mom. It’s great.”

Not to say that their 11-month-old son Oliver Finlay isn’t holding his own as well in the eyes of the proud papa.

“Every day is a milestone, like pulling himself up, walking around, holding onto things,” Dallas says, beaming. “He can climb up the stairs like a ninja. It’s just every day there’s something that’s a milestone that amazes you. Like holding his own bottle — that amazes you as a parent.”

Picking a baby name can be hard, especially in Hollywood. It’s even harder, Ginnifer Goodwin revealed, when considering her husband’s family name.

“Naming a child though, with the last name of ‘Dallas,’ is a little more complicated,” Goodwin, 35, told Jimmy Kimmel during her first public appearance since tying the knot with Josh Dallas.

“Not a first name that begins with a ‘D’ because it gets porny,” she joked, referencing Debbie Does Dallas, “and nothing geographical ’cause it sounds like an airport.”

But Dallas, 32, doesn’t heed his wife’s warning, proposing a very Texas-centric name for their unborn child.

“He was like, ‘Boy or girl, Austin Dallas,'” Goodwin said on the show. “I’m like, ‘I’m pretty sure that is an actual place where planes land. We can’t do that.'”

Once Upon a Time costars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas are living a real-life fairy tale after tying the knot last week.

Their wedding marked more of a beginning than a happy ending: The actors are also expecting their first child together this spring.  Although Dallas, 32, represented their show solo at WonderCon on Sunday, he gushed about his new wife.

“It was just an incredible day of love with all our families together,” he told PEOPLE of the April 12 ceremony. “And obviously, marrying the woman that I love, that stands out. That’s what it’s all about.”

He may play the brave Prince Charming on Once Upon a Time, but Dallas confessed fatherhood has him scared.

“Hey, I fully admit, I am terrified,” he said. “I’m excited but terrified and nervous. And I can’t wait to meet it. I want it to fully develop and have all its lungs, but I want to meet it soon.”
