Fortune Feimster knew that now-wife Jacquelyn Smith was 'the one' for her after they made a pact to never murder each other à la true crime shows like Dateline. 

The Chick Fight actress, 40, opened up about the moment she knew they were 'meant to be' while chatting to Drew Barrymore on her daytime show Wednesday. 

Fortune explained how the NBC news magazine played a pivotal role in their romance after the show helped them get rid of some early relationship jitters.

'It was early on in our relationship and as women tend to do we watch Dateline together,' Fortune joked.

'A lot of those Dateline shows start with, "They just started dating," and we’re kind of eyeing each other like we don’t really know each other, "Are you like that? Are you going to murder me?"

'You get kind of nervous, you hope that you know the person you are with.'

But it seemed like the Champions actress and kindergarten teacher Smith were on the same page.
