It is difficult to find out details about the meeting of Sawa and Sahanovitch. According to one of Sahanovitch’s Instagram posts, the couple was together for 12 years before tying the knot in 2013, which would mean they started dating in the early ‘00s. We also know that Sawa took a long break from acting during this period, after struggling to make the decision to continue his film career.

“At 25-years-old I stepped away from the business for five years and most of the time didn’t know whether I was going to come back or not,” Sawa said in a 2017 interview with Us magazine. “I had done a series of four or five indie movies that I wasn’t necessarily proud of. Some were horror movies. After Final Destination everybody wanted me to do horror movies and some weren’t as good as others. I was just burnt out.”

It’s also possible that Sawa let his personal life take precedence over his career at this time because he was happily dating Sahanovitch. Luckily for his fans, the former teen idol eventually made a return to acting, though it wasn’t intentional.  “I was brought back into the business by accident,” he told Us. “Somebody at my agency didn’t get the memo that I quit and sent me an audition and I put myself on tape and that was it.”

They have two children together

Sawa and Sahanovitch welcomed Hudson, their first child, into the world in 2014. While the couple kept the details about their son’s birth relatively quiet, Sawa did tell People magazine that the baby was “eight pounds, one ounce of pure love.” He also Tweeted about becoming a father, writing: “I love him. He’s my little pride and joy.”

A little more than a year later Sawa subtly stated to his Twitter followers that he was with Sahanovitch expecting a second child by teasing, “Boy, do I have some news. Or should I say ‘girl.’” The SLC Punk actor was clearly thrilled about giving Hudson a little sister, writing: “We are going to have some pretty kickass Barbie sessions around here!! Im’a fishtail that pink Corvette too. And Tea Parties for days, yo.”

Sahanovitch gave rise to Scarlett Heleena in December 2015. “My wife Dawni and I welcome a beautiful little girl into the world—our daughter,” the Nikita star told People. “Please say prayers that she is quiet and calm… Unlike my son, who would shoot himself out of a cannon if we let him.”

Sawa says that despite the fact that some of his ‘90s movies are perfect for little kids, his children have no interest in seeing their dad on the TV screen. In a hilarious tweet from 2020, the Final Destination star posted a picture of Scarlett asleep on the couch along with the caption: “When you put your first movie, Casper, on for your 4-year-old and she lets you know that you’re just dad to me, pal. And that’s the most important thing in life.”

TheNow and ThenAn actor shared a similar tale with Entertainment Tonight about what happened when he tried to show his kids the 1997 adventure flick he starred in with fellow ‘90s heartthrob, Jonathan Taylor Thomas. “We tried to watch this movie that I did called Wild America and they weren’t having it,” Sawa said. “They were not having dad up there. They wanted to turn it off and we haven’t revisited any of my films since.”
