Peter Facinelli: Accidentally In Love, a Valentine to Jennie

“Peter Facinelli has his three daughters with Jennie Garth to thank for the inspiration behind “Accidentally in Love,” the romantic Valentine’s Day tale he wrote for his wife of 10 years.

“I originally wrote this script for maybe me and my wife to play it, but then I got a little busy. I was doing press on [‘The Twilight Saga:] Eclipse’ at the time it was shooting, and I had no time to act in the film,” Peter says. “I also worried that this would become the Jennie Garth/Peter Facinelli movie instead of a film with two characters.
