JoAnna Garcia Swisher's husband, New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher is guest starring on two episodes of her hit ABC show, Better With You, the first of which airs tonight at 8:30 p.m.

The Cuban actress, 31, spoke to Latina.com about what it was like working with the love of her life, what we can expect to see on tonight’s all-new episode, and why everything is "better with Nick."

Tell us about Nick’s role on tonight’s Better With You!

He plays himself. He did such a great job. It's really funny! I only shared one small moment with him in the episode — he was with the guys. But it’s better that way because they are all very close in real life. They spent an entire week cracking each other up and punching each other as they ran by, and they were total dudes — it was hilarious!

Did you give Nick any acting advice?

We ran his lines the Sunday before he started on Monday and I was so impressed with him — he’s a real natural.  He knows what he’s doing up there!

Did Nick get at all jealous of your on-screen love interest Jake Lacy while he was on set?

No, they adore each other. Nick doesn’t get jealous very often. [Laughs]

Do you and Nick give each other career advice?

Definitely. I think that we both have very similar ways of thinking and I bounce things off him all of the time. It’s a real, true partnership.

Your show is called Better With You, which begs the question: Are you better with Nick?

Everything’s better with Nick!
