The estranged couple, who share a son who was born in 2015, met while costarring on the hit AMC series with Kartheiser proposing to Bledel in 2013.
“I’m a very lucky man,” the In Time star said in an interview following their engagement. “I keep saying girlfriend. And then I’m like, ‘I mean, my fiancée!’”
The following year, Bledel and Kartheiser officially tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in in Ojai, California. “It was a small and intimate family affair,” an insider said of their private nuptials. “They wanted something relaxed and beautiful. Ojai was the perfect place. His family flew out from the East Coast.”
As the actress was planning her own ceremony, she was also starring the the film Jenny’s Wedding. “It was surreal to kind of go through the scenes of the wedding itself and think about how much these characters have to go through just to get to that point," she told Nylon in a 2015 interview of art imitating life. "And, you know, it was so easy for me to just plan my wedding and celebrate and have everyone be happy for me.”
When the ex-pair welcomed their baby boy, whose name has been kept under wraps, Bledel and Kartheiser managed hide their bundle of joy from the public.
However, in 2016, Gilmore Girls: A Day in the Life costar Scott Patterson accidentally let the cat out of the bag that the Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants star was a mom. “She’s really blossomed as a woman and now she’s a proud new mother and married and happy,” the actor spilled in an interview with Glamour.
Us Weekly was the first to report Alexis Bledel & Vincent Kartheiser's split.
