Mad Men’s on-screen lovers Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel may have had an ill-fated affair in the popular series, but off-screen, they are madly in love with each other and according to Us Weekly, the couple recently got engaged. Alexis, 31 and Kartheiser, 33 started dating early last year and recent reports suggest that all is going swimmingly for the couple, as they prepare for life as husband and wife.

“Vincent proposed a few weeks ago,” a friend told the magazine. “She’s been wearing her ring, it’s huge!” Another source had also confirmed “they couldn’t be happier. A third commented that they are “so cute together.” Bledel and Kartheiser are no strangers to the world of celebrity relationships, even if this will be the first trip down the aisle for both of them. Bledel previously dated her on-screen love interest in Gilmour Girls, Milo Ventimiglia, whilst Kartheiser used to date the actress Rachael Leigh Cook.

We’re not sure how long the couple are planning on staying engaged before they officially tie the knot but Vince currently has two projects in post-production, one a drama called Red Knot and another entitled Beach Pillows. Meanwhile, Alexis has four productions on the go, Remember Sunday, Parts Per Billion, Friends & Family and The Letters. We’re pretty sure that between them they’ll manage to find a gap in their schedules to walk down the aisle.
