Eric shares his children with actress Roselyn Sánchez. The couple, who began dating after meeting at an L.A. party in 2005, tied the knot in November 2008. 

Four years later, in 2012, they welcomed their daughter, Sebella Rose Winter. Then in 2017, their family expanded even further with the birth of their son, Dylan Gabriel Winter.

Eric’s throwback post comes amid the ongoing writers’ strike that has caused production on various TV shows to come to a halt, including The Rookie

Production on the upcoming sixth season was reportedly due to begin in June. However, it’s likely that filming hasn’t yet commenced in light of the strike.

Industry insiders have predicted that the strike will be settled in the fall. If this is true, fans can expect filming to begin shortly after, which means the new episodes will most likely arrive on our screens mid-season. 

While the show usually starts up again in the fall, ABC has made some changes to its fall schedule, which is now mainly comprised of unscripted series. 

Eric showed his support for the strike in a post to Instagram last month which saw him and his wife, Roselyn, posing alongside fellow actor Matt Cedeno, on the picket lines.

He wrote in the caption: “It was a busy morning on the streets of Burbank,” adding the hashtags: “#wgastrike #sagaftrastrike #sagaftrastrong #wgastrong”. 

Fans were quick to rally behind the stars, with one person writing: “Behind you guys all the way! Hope you get what you deserve!”

While the strike may have set production back a little, fans will be glad to know that Nathan Fillion’s new role in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy won’t delay it any further.

Show creator Alexi Hawley took to Twitter recently to reassure fans. Responding to a post from TV Line that asked if Nathan’s role in the film could further delay the release of series six, he simply responded: “Nope”.
