Chris McNally, who is most known for playing Lucas Bouchard in the Hallmark Channel series When Calls the Heart, prefers to keep his personal life private, particularly his dating status.
However, the actor has repeatedly hinted that he has a girlfriend, and it has been speculated that it is none other than his co-star Julie Gonzalo.
McNally Unveiled Having a Girlfriend
McNally is one of those celebs that like to keep his personal life private. When you’re a prominent celebrity with a big fan base all over the world, it’s difficult to keep romantic affairs hidden. The Hallmark star has spoken about his partner and their relationship on numerous occasions, but he has never revealed her identity.
Furthermore, McNally does not share any images on his social media accounts that reveal anything about his personal life. However, it is stated that he is happily married to Julie Gonzalo, his co-star in the 2018 Hallmark film Sweetest Heart. Neither of them, however, has accepted or refuted it.
When asked when he feels the sexiest in a 2019 interview with ET, the good-looking actor backed away and stated it makes him feel good if his lover deems him handsome. He also added that decorating their apartment is the most romantic thing he has ever done, implying that they will be living together.

He and Gonzalo both had photos of the same dogs
In a 2019 interview with the LA Times, McNally said that whenever the couple and their two lovely dogs, Charlie and Bowie, go camping, they stretch a folding tent and lay out a kingsize mattress for four — the couple and their two adorable dogs, Charlie and Bowie.
He had just told My Devotional Thoughts a few months before the comment that he and his girlfriend had each adopted a dog. Gonzalo has now posted a few of photos of McNally’s pets to her Instagram account. She shared her personalized birthday cake with Charlie and Bowie’s fondant sculptures on top of an Argentian shirt on Instagram in September 2019.
In March 2021, she was spotted having a walk with her dogs in the snow.
Because they both had images of the same dogs, Gonzalo may be the woman McNally described having adopted the dogs with. Furthermore, the Hallmark actor claimed in a 2019 interview with NS News that he would dance with his lover in their living room and that his partner is South American, so he wanted to learn a few Salsa skills.
I waltzed her around the living room… but she’s from South America, so she now wants me to learn how to salsa. His girlfriend’s identity as South American hints that he is dating Gonzalo, as she is of South American ancestry as well.

From the screen to the real world McNally and Gonzalo met on the set of Hallmark’s TV show The Sweetest Hearts as co-stars. It was all about the camera, makeup, and hair testing on the first day they met. Gonzalo wanted to talk about the sequences and, most importantly, get to know each other from the beginning.
We just kind of spoke and talked and tried to get to know each other as much as we could in the limited time we had. After that, we were able to get together after work and read various lines throughout the film. And because he’s such a nice person and a fantastic actor, it was a breeze working with him.
In a 2018 interview with Fansided, the actress spilled the beans about her first meeting with the talented actor. When asked how they were able to create romantic chemistry, she said they took time to converse with each other and then met after work to read lines throughout the film. She also stated that she believed in the energy and space they shared and that they had spontaneously developed amazing chemistry.
At the end of the day, chemistry is all about having a positive impression of the person you’re with and being aware of their energy. I’m a firm believer in energies, space, and other such concepts.
Not only that, but she also revealed a humorous anecdote about how the two shared cupcakes in between shoots because Gonzalo’s character in the Hallmark film ran a cupcake company.
McNally and Gonzalo, on the other hand, have never spoken publicly about their relationship, and we appreciate their need for seclusion.
