Alexis Bledel & Vincent Kartheiser are engaged, she’s flashing a ‘huge’ rock

Yes, there are LOTS of hair issues in this post (my God…), but there’s also really, really good news! Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel are engaged! Sources confirmed the engagement to Us Weekly, and other sites are running it like it’s totally confirmed, so let’s go with it. I know a lot of you love Alexis because of Gilmore Girls, but I never watched that, so my only real exposure to her was on last season’s Mad Men, where she guest-starred as a really mixed-up young wife and mother, like she was someone out of a Sylvia Plath poem (the Plath references were heavy in those episodes). Her character had an affair with Vincent Kartheiser’s Pete Campbell and it was a mess, but they had a lot of chemistry together. But that’s just me – although Pete is such a douchebag, I love Kartheiser and I think he’s incredibly talented. Vincent and Alexis have been together for about a year, and now they’re engaged?

Rory may have turned down Logan’s proposal at the end of Gilmore Girls, but in real life, Alexis Bledel is happily engaged! Alexis, 31, said “yes” to boyfriend Vincent Kartheiser, 33, “a few weeks ago” and is proudly showing off her “huge” engagement ring, Us Weekly is reporting.

And it sounds like Vincent’s proposal had been in the works for a while. The source adds that when he and Alexis attended the wedding of David Cross and Amber Tamblyn — who co-starred with Alexis in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies — he was telling fellow partygoers that he hoped to put a ring on his then-girlfriend’s finger soon!

“He was saying they might elope and do parties in New York, L.A. and her hometown, Houston,” the source reveals.

One of the biggest killers of Hollywood marriages is distance, but it sounds like Alexis’ husband-to-be has that all figured out.

“The most important thing for us is to make sure that we see each other in the flesh at least every 10 days,” Vincent once told the mag. “I’m a really lucky guy!”

[From Hollywood Life]

Aw. I think it’s cute. And I think this is probably for real too – although I’m doubtful about the size of the engagement ring. Vincent seems like the kind of hippie/granola guy who wouldn’t spend the money on a huge rock. But who knows, maybe he’s changed? Maybe he has a working toilet now. Maybe he just fell in love HARD and he wants to give her everything.

PS… Am I the only one who thinks Alexis could be a Deschanel sister?

    better question: am i the only one that thinks she looks like HIS sister? lol 8O

    my gosh, i can see the sparkling baby blues that kid’s gonna inherit now! :-D

  2. lottie says:

    What is that hairline all about?

    • Lee says:

      His character, Pete Campbell, on Mad Men, has a receding hairline as the years go on, so this is likely how they create it – shave it back. What we’re seeing here is probably the beginnings of grow-back.

    • Tiffany says:

      I know last season on mad men they made him shave it back to look like he was starting to go bald.

      • Hoya_chick says:

        Lol, you’d think they’d have a rug designed to make him look like he is balding! What if what he shaved off grows back weird? Plus look at these photos? The period of it growing back looks so funny. Ha.

      • Hoganbcmj says:

        Shaved hair cannot “grow back weird.” That’s a huge urban myth. The shaving of hair has no effect whatsoever on the growing back of said hair.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Hoganbcm, I am not doubting you, but I have some hair questions and thought you might be able to shed some light.

        In college one of my guy friends had very silky blonde hair. He shaved it bald on top for a part in a play he was in for a few weeks, and when it grew back it was verrrrry coarse and brown (but the color change was probably from lack of sun lightening). Do you think that was from something else, or could it have been the shaving?

        Another of my friends in college was a girl whose parents were both from China. She said that her mother didn’t want her to have the “typical” hair, and so she shaved her head against the root repeatedly when she was a child. In college, she had a massive head of hair that looked kind of similar to Solange, and she said that she had to get it permed to make it look curly otherwise it would just be big and fuzzy. Do you think this could actually happen?

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Ah I see, so that explains it! It looks awful.

  3. bea says:

    I haven’t seen a photo of her in quite a while. Cute couple.

    What the heck is going on with that dress – she appears to have a large, saggy breast under her arm……..? Whatever it is, I don’t like that dress at all, but she looks great in green. She reminds me of the girl from Suburgatory a little…..

  4. marie says:

    aww, yay-they’re cute together.

    and yes, she could pass for a Deschanel. and speaking of that, thank goodness The New Girl finally had a new episode.

  5. NerdMomma says:

    Gah she’s so beautiful! I want to see more of her.

  6. brin says:

    Great news! ” Loved Gilmore Girls”! Congrats to them and does that mean another “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” reunion?

  7. Hoya_chick says:

    You are missing out, Gilmore Girls is it! I still watch it on reruns.

    Love Alexis she is gorgeous and smart. He has a wonky hairline but if she likes it, I love it! Congrats!

    Now all of the sisters of the traveling pants are all married or engaged! America, Blake, Amber and now Alexis. Yea!

  8. serena says:

    If they’ll have a baby it’ll surely have the biggest blue eyes and hugest forehead, so cute.

  9. Talie says:

    Aw, this is adorable! I think she dated some douche bags, there were a lot of nasty rumors when she was with Milo Ventasomething…so I’m happy to see her make it through and find someone good.

  10. Amanda_SB says:

    Congrats to them both! Very talented couple.

  11. oliveo says:

    They strike me as a couple with substance. And on a superficial note, he has SUCH a baby face still… I think he’s going to get more attractive with age.

  12. Tania says:

    She is gorgeous but she looks like she smuggled something under her dress?? It looks very ill fitting and awkward? It makes her look larger than she is.

  13. El Kiddo says:

    Yes, she could pass as one of the Deschanels, but then she’d still be my favorite and the prettiest. i love her to bits. Go Rory!

  14. Tee says:

    They were is that “Tuck Everlasting” movie together as well. They do have great chemistry. Yay!

  15. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    They are cute. Pete Campbell is so disgusting that it is hard to really love Vincent, but I will try to overlook his smarmy face and see the love in his pretty eyes.

    I always thought he was gay. She definitely leans toward the Deschanel side.

  16. Fleurthefrenchy says:

    Love them together! They are just so cute!

  17. L says:

    Yay!They are SUCH a cute couple.

    But I doubt the ‘huge’ rock story as well. This is a guy who until recently didn’t own a car, lived in a bungalow he described as a “wooden box” with no mirrors; and he had been selling or giving away everything he owned. So I don’t see him picking out a huge diamond, unless it was a heirloom or some other kind of ‘green’ stone or metal

  18. Lilo says:

    I HATED his role on Angel…I can’t look past it, sorry guys. Alexis I love, she was so cute on GG. A lot of Silvia Plath references in that show, too! Well, Congrats, I hopw it’ll stick.

  19. ctkat1 says:

    I’ve liked them as a couple ever since they were first reported together, which was on a plane. They were in coach, both in middle seats, and nobody was throwing a celebrity diva fit. Any celebrity who flies in the middle seat in coach has my stamp of approval.

  20. anneesezz says:

    I can’t believe she’s 31. She’s still Rory to me. They seem very down to earth.

  21. curegirl0421 says:

    Awwww, Connor & Rory 4 Eva! :)

  22. goodquestion says:

    I love GG! Glad to see that she’s happy. But did she get breast implants?

  23. Barrett says:

    Yeah cute kid with beautiful Blue eyes! What a beautiful, cute couple! Hard to look away!

  24. Gemini08 says:

    Before we jump on Vincent about his hair keep in mind that he is currently filming Mad Men and this season flashes forward to the late 60′s. So the sideburns are historically accurate! I love Alexis Bledel (Rory!) and I remember Vincent back when he was on Angel (their shows were on the same network too!) so for me this is such a nostalgic pairing. They are so cute together.

  25. Gabrielle says:

    I love Alexis! I think she’s so pretty and talented. I wish we’d see more of her. Maybe her character will come back on Mad Men.

  26. truthful says:

    I was hoping to see a picture of the ring…

    love them together

  27. Happy21 says:

    YAY! A great celebrity couple! Can’t wait to see more of them.

  28. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    I didn’t know they were dating! Loved their chemistry on Mad Men, love his talent. He brings out the pathos in an unlovable character. He is kind of reminding me of Aaron Paul here for some reason…blue eyes?

  29. judyjudy says:

    I heart Vincent Kartheiser.

    And I love that they look like twins.

  30. Bijlee says:

    Awww that’s sweet. Hopefully he learns Spanish for her and they teach their kids.
    I like them both and covet their foreheads…is that weird? Mine is a two finger forehead so any girl that has a huge forehead that needs bangs I’m jealous of. I know kaiser hates bangs, but I love them and want them so badly.

  31. henderswife says:

    I loved him in Another Day in Paradise. I think it was his first role as an actor. I’ve always had a crush on him since that movie. They are a very cute couple.

  32. moon says:

    they had such amazing chemistry on mad men, not surprised to hear this!

  33. Frivolity says:

    They look like such young kids! Regardless, congrats to them!

    From what I’ve read about Vincent, he seems like a decent, throughtful guy. And Alexis has always come off as pretty grounded when I’ve seen her on Letterman.

    For those who haven’t seen Gilmore Girls, I highly recommend it. I resisted it because I thought it just might be too precious … just too much. But I decided to give it another try. I ended up watching the whole series last year and it turned out to be delightful – a quirky, well-written sort-of soap opera with real (rather than phony) heart.

  34. May says:

    Blake, Amber, Alexis… I really hope that America Ferrera gets a ring soon too. I don’t think I could handle having all of my close friends getting married in two years.

  35. Shira says:

    Alexis is such a Deschanel. Man, I wish I was a part of that family.

  36. Katy says:

    She is beautiful and so classy. I loved Gilmore Girls growing up. The characters and writing were great. It’s also where my love of Melissa McCarthy started.

  37. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I think Alexis is one of the prettiest women in Hollywood, her eyes alone are just gorgeous.
    Vincent isn’t aging very well is he. Whats with the weird stubble looking stuff around his hairline? Does he shave down the little flyaway patchy balding bits or something?
    Anyway congrats to them. I hope he makes her happy.

  38. mkyarwood says:

    Deschanel/Bledel/Blunt/Perry = same Grandpa who really sowed his oats.

  39. EddyKat says:

    So I found him quite familiar, googled him and.. OMG he was Snake in The HairyBird AKA Strike! AKA All I Wanna Do!!

    Alexis, I approve ;)

  40. Amy says:

    The last girl of the Sisterhood is getting married! I can’t wait for the wedding pics to see what the girls are wearing at the wedding. I remember the Twitter pictures of Amber Tamblyn’s wedding and how American Ferrara photo bombed one of the pictures!

  41. lucy2 says:

    I will always have a fondness for her from Gilmore Girls (highly recommend watching, it was sweet and funny and charming) and though he seems a bit oddball, he is a very talented guy. Congrats to them.

    I love the color of her dress, but the fit is weird.

  42. A says:

    Love them together!
    I thought he would be a douche, but after watching interviews with him I can see he is a very nice guy, very humble and sweet!
    Congrats to them! Oh and I want to see the wedding pictures! but we probably won’t..which make me like them more.
    Oh Oh, he was very hot in the movie strike/all i wanna do with Kirsten Dunst!

  43. Ally8 says:

    Poor Vincent with the toilet story. It’s the nice-guy version of Terrence-Howard-with-the-wipes, i.e. the weird self-confessed WC peculiarity that won’t fade away. Here’s a more recent Kartheiser quote:

    “I need to stop this. I’ll be 80 years old and people will still be wondering this. Yes, yes, my God, I have a toilet. I do have a toilet and I don’t have a car.” [Boston Herald]

  44. Vl says:

    Both have babyfaces, not saying that is a bad thing, they’re very cute, both of them.
    But if they reproduce surely the offspring has to show ID until retirement?

    As for the Deschanel/Bledel/Blunt/Perry thing: Alexis is so much prettier than the others it’s silly since they’re all attractive.
