During an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan on Wednesday, the Stumptown actress, 37, gushed about her husband to hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.

“Isn’t he just a dream?” she said of Killam. “I’m a very lucky woman. This magic happened 14 years ago. We’ve been together since we were 22 years young. We were babies and we survived our 20s together — I don’t know how that’s possible, but we did. It’s crazy.” The How I Met Your Mother star went on to explain the two met at a friend’s birthday party. Smulders said that the couple, who share daughters Shaelyn Cado, 10, and Janita Mae, 4, decided to forget celebrating their seven-year wedding anniversary on Sep. 8 in favor of a “much more important” family affair. The hosts then surprised the Marvel actress with an anniversary note that Killam left for her while appearing on Live last week. “We are out of milk, please pick up some on your way home,” she read aloud. “Happy seven-year anniversary. Here are seven copper pennies. Please use them towards the milk.'”

“We have family that helps us out when we need it and just supports our girls emotionally as well,” she said.“Always, in every decision I make, my daughters come first, whether that’s a work decision or a life decision, and that’s the same with my husband, too,” she added. “They’re our top priority.”
