Alexis Bledel + Vincent Kartheiser Are Engaged!
‘Mad Men’ stars Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel are engaged to be married. Congratulations!
Vincent Katheiser and Alexis Bledel’s love affair on Mad Men may have been illicit, but their real-life relationship isn’t—and guess what? They just got engaged! Congratulations, you two lovebirds!
Vincent and Alexis began dating not too long after they met on the set of Mad Men; an anonymous source to Vincent confirmed the relationship to Us Weekly last June. Though they’ve mostly kept things on the down low during the time they’ve been together, they confirmed their happy news to People yesterday. It will be a first marriage for both of them.
Perhaps somewhat bizarrely, the thing I’m most curious about is whether Alexis will adopt Vincent’s ascetic lifestyle. For a space of time, the actor eschewed worldly pleasures; in response to all the attention given to and success of Mad Men, he sold or gave away most of his possessions, he lived in a bungalow he described as “just a wooden box,” he didn’t own a car, and he had decided not to have children for environmental reasons. He may have already given up that lifestyle by the time he started dating Alexis, though; in any event, he has since stated that he now owns a car (“It’s below $25,000 and it’s a manual”) and says he’s “just a regular dude now.” We wonder if that means that we can start expecting little Bledel-Kartheiser babies now, too?
Well, regardless, the one thing we’re pretty sure we can bet on is that their wedding won’t be your standard lavish celeb wedding. Congrats again, and may you have many happy years together!
