Alexis Bledel and her longtime boyfriend Vincent Kartheiser secretly married earlier this summer.

Alexis Bledel, Vincent Kartheiser Wed

Bledel, 32, and Kartheiser, 35, wed in California in a private ceremony. The top-secret nuptials have been confirmed by E! News.

Bledel and Kartheiser met on the set of Mad Men when the former Gilmore Girls star had a multi-episode arc on the AMC drama. In her role, she was an unhappy housewife that seduced Kartheiser’s character Pete Campbell. The two reportedly didn’t begin dating until after the show wrapped, as Kartheiser said they kept it professional while working.

"We were completely professional," the actor said. "We never saw each other out. We never—it was nothing, it was just work."

Though Bledel and Kartheiser were determined to focus on the work and not the potential for a relationship both Jon Hamm and Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner saw a romance in the making.

"I did know he liked her from a very early point," Hamm told Vulture in April. "I was a supporter of that union."

Weiner said, “I told Vinnie that they would be great together. I was like, 'Don't blow it!'"

After about a year of dating, Bledel and Kartheiser became engaged in March 2013.
