Kirsten Dunst was grilled about her engagement to Jesse Plemons on Friday’s “Tonight Show,” leading her to joke they’ll name their child “Fargo Season 2.” Watch the video below!

Dunst sat down with Jimmy Fallon to promote her new movie The Beguiled, but he wanted all the dish on getting engaged to her “Fargo” co-star. The actress tried to downplay the subject at first, saying she wanted to keep things a “little private,” but explained they became a couple “a year after” working as husband and wife on the critically-acclaimed FX series. “We became really good friends first, which is how I hear you were with your wife, too,” she told the host.

Fallon wasn’t satisfied yet, urging Dunst, “So, what happened? Talk to me! I want some juicy deets!” Though she admitted he was making her “nervous,” the former child star played off the potentially awkward situation well. Fallon kept the pressure on, saying, “I’m secretly getting it all out now. How’d he do it? Can you tell me? Was he nervous? Did he cry? Did you cry? Look how red you’re getting!”

Dunst confirmed it was Plemmons who popped the question, and admitted she was sick at the time of the proposal. She further revealed she thought the moment might be coming based on her “dad’s face at Christmas.” But if it wasn’t for their television show, the actress wouldn’t be set to wed. Fallon marveled, “You met the guy that you’re going to marry! Isn’t that amazing?”

Though Dunst was ready to move on from the topic, telling Fallon, “We talked enough about that,” she then quipped, “That is amazing. I’ll name my kid ‘Fargo Season 2!'” Check out the full video below.
