Melissa Benoist Marries “Glee” Co-Star Blake Jenner In Secret Ceremony
Melissa Benoist and her “Glee” co-star Blake Jenner are married! The pair secretly wed back in March, shortly after Benoist finished filming her new TV show “Supergirl.” Rumors began in April that the couple was married and resurfaced last week at San Diego Comic-Con after Benoist was spotted wearing a silver wedding band on her finger.
According to Us Weekly, the actress also told people at the event she and Jenner had already tied the knot. Supposedly, the couple honeymooned in Europe and shared photos from their trip on Instagram at the time, but never mentioned the wedding.
News of Benoist and Jenner’s engagement broke in July 2013, one year after they met on the set of “Glee.” Jenner, who competed on “The Glee Project,” joined the Fox show as singer Ryder Lynn in 2012. Benoist joined the same year as fellow Glee club member Marley Rose. During their time on the series, Benoist and Jenner’s characters went on one date, but it never blossomed into a romance.
Gossip Cop belatedly congratulates Benoist and jenner on their marriage, and keeping it a secret from the media for as long as they did.
