Newcomers Blake Jenner and Melissa Benoist have not only fallen in love, but are getting married. Us Weekly revealed on Thursday the two actors have recently got engaged.
A source told the magazine that The Glee costars are ‘officially engaged‘ despite only recently confirming they were even dating. While not yet household names, 24-year-old Melissa has already been earmarked as the actress to follow in Lea’s footsteps. Her character new girl Marley Rose joined the cast in Season 4 and has been described as the ‘new Rachel’ – Lea’s lead character.
Not doubt their off-screen romance while also see 20-year-old Blake fill the shoes of Cory’s character, Finn. The newly engaged pair have already stepped into the roles of two other famous love birds – Sandy and Danny from Grease.
