Jennie Garth dreaded blind date with her fiancé

Jennie Garth dreaded blind date with her fiancé

Jennie Garth "did not hit it off" with fiancé David Abrams right away.

The 43-year-old actress, who got engaged in April after just five months of dating, admits she almost skipped their first blind date because she wasn't looking for a boyfriend at the time.

The former 'Beverly Hills 90210' star said: "I wasn't looking at all, in fact I didn't even want to go on the date with him and he didn't even want to go on a date with me. We went out on a blind double date with another friend of his and we did not hit it off right away. He was like tall and handsome and perfect, and I thought that's exactly what I don't want."

But the blonde beauty claims she knew later that night that she wanted to spend the rest of her life with David.

She added: "Seriously one date in. I am glowing, I feel really happy."

Jennie, who has daughters Luca, 17, Lola, 12, and Fiona, eight, with ex-husband Peter Facinelli, is planning to tie the knot "soon."

Asked if her children will be involved, she told 'Access Hollywood Live': "They are definitely a part of everything. They are going be my wedding party. It's going to be special and sweet."

David has formed a close bond with her girls.

She said: "You have to find a very special, open man and he loves taking the girls to school and being a part of their life.

"He loves kids, he's great with kids, he's very respectful and treats them like little people."
