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.”

Most mothers greatly anticipate—and then struggle with—getting their toddlers out of diapers. But for Alicia Silverstone and her son Bear, almost 3, the process was a much happier one.

The actress and author, whose second book, The Kind Mama, chronicles her pre and postnatal methods for raising healthy babies, utilized elimination communication: a technique in which parents, using cues from babies as young as newborns, help their children use the toilet from the start.

“Just like your baby tells you it needs to eat or it’s tired, they tell you when they need to go to the bathroom,” Silverstone tells PEOPLE. She started using the method with Bear when he was six months old.
