Love is in the air for Mad Men co-stars Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser. According to a rep for Kartheiser, the Bledel and Kartheiser have become “recently engaged”. The pair first announced that they were a couple in October of 2012 at a New York City art event, although they have reportedly been dating since as early as last spring.
Bledel and Kartheiser’s love affair began with an affair on the set of Mad Men. Bledel played a neglected house wife on the series who found herself tangled up in an affair with Pete Campbell (Kartheiser). According to an unnamed friend of the couple, “Vincent proposed a few weeks ago. She’s been wearing her ring. It’s huge!”
This will be the first marriage, and first engagement, for each of the stars. Bledel was linked to Gilmore Girls co-star Milo Ventimiglia for three years and Kartheiser was rumoured to have dated Rachael Leigh Cook in the past. Although their relationship is short-lived, that’s how these things seem to go in Hollywood.
Mad Men is set to return on April 7th, along with Katheiser, but Bledel will not be returning to the show. Bledel’s latest film, The Brass Teapot, is set to premiere two days before her fiancées show on April 5th.
