Blake Jenner and “supergirl” Melissa Benoist have finally tied the knot. Benoist, the star of the hugely anticipated TV series Supergirl got married to her longtime boyfriend and Glee co-star, Blake Jenner.
According to reports, the wedding was a private affair with just close friends and family. While the exact details are still unknown, rumors have it that the couple had their super-secret wedding in late March. These rumors were fueled further when Melissa was spotted with a ring on her finger while she was promoting SuperGirl. According to reports from Us Weekly, Benoist then said that she was indeed married. According to the magazine’s sources, the couple honeymooned in Europe.
Jenner and Benoist did post adorable vacation pictures on Instagram while they were in Europe but no one guessed the pictures were from their honeymoon.
Jenner, who plays Ryder Lynn, an important character in the 4th and 5th season of Glee met Benoist while on set for the show. The couple started dating in 2012 and got engaged a year later, in July, 2013. However, the couple only announced their relationship two months prior to their engagement. In a twitter chat with ET Canada, Jenner said, “Yeah, I have a romance going on :)”
And when a fan asked him whether this romance with his now wife, he responded, “Yup :)”
In an interview with E! in December, 2013, when asked whether or not they had a date set yet, the couple said, "We're just excited that it's happening."
They said, "We're just focusing on work right now so whenever that happens…"
And looks like it has finally happened.
Talking about their relationship, Benoist has previously said, “We clicked on his first day, during a ‘Born to Hand Jive’ dance rehearsal.”
“I love talking about it. Blake is amazing! The chemistry you see with Marley and Ryder is not acting.”
Marley is Benoist’s character. The two characters have an unmistakably hot chemistry on the show but after they go on a date, things don’t work out and Ryder finds himself a new girlfriend. Fortunately, for all the fans of the couple, it did work out in real life.
While Benoist, 26 is reaching new heights doing big name TV shows and Oscar winning movies, with the likes of J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller, Jenner, now 26 years of age is focusing on other projects. He has big things planned for 2016, with a starring role in award winning director Richard Linklater’s upcoming flick, Everybody Wants Some.
With the recent news of them getting married hitting the internet, fans have been going crazy. Fans who were eagerly waiting for them to finally get married have expressed their best wishes for the couple through Twitter.
