Vincent Kartheiser, or Peter on Mad Men, has popped the question to his leading lady Alexis Bledel. The couple met on the set of AMC’s hit show during the 5th season last year, Bledel played a depressed housewife who has an affair with Peter. They took their love off screen and appear to be adorably in love.
Vincent, 33, told US Weekly that he’s “a very lucky man” to be engaged to the Gilmore Girls alum, 31. He went on to gush that he has to keep reminding himself to call her his fiancee and not girlfriend after the proposal just a few weeks ago. According to his Mad Men costars, the proposal was a long time coming, Jessica Pare explained how excessively Vincent practiced:
“It was purely comedic but he was giving [Elisabeth] and I a facetious rendition of his planned proposal. We were like, ‘Great! Lets do this one without cursing and without yelling!'”
Costar Elisabeth Moss and Vincent have a long history together, well at least their characters do, and she could not be more thrilled for her friends. Moss gushed about the couple at the Mad Men premiere party, Wednesday March 20th:
“They are such a yin and yang! I love them both! I have known Vinny for 12 years, and Alexis — I’m kind of obsessed with her. She’s the sweetest! I’ve never seen Vincent like this, they are so happy. It’s really cool!”
Sounds like the happy couple have a lot to look forward to. We hope the rest of the cast is as excited for the pair as Elisabeth! We wonder if a Mad Men themed wedding is in the works? We’re sure they get to keep some of the costumes right? Why not pay homage to the show that brought them together! We can dream right?
