'Glee' co-stars engaged: Blake Jenner and Melissa Benoist to marry
Jenner, 20, and Benoist, 24, both joined the "Glee" cast at the beginning of Season 4. While Jenner came on as the winner of "The Glee Project" Season 2 and subsequently took the increasingly prominent role of Ryder Lynn, Benoist was cast in the traditional way as Marley Rose, touted as the next Rachel Berry.
Unlike the other big "Glee" couple of Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, Jenner and Benoist have managed to keep their relationship quiet for the most part. Word only leaked out when Blake Jenner did an online chat for ET Canada in May. When one fan asked if he had a real romance going on, Jenner's reply was direct but non-specific:
"Yeah I have a romance going on :)"
Shortly afterward, another user pushed for more information, asking if rumors about Jenner and Benoist being a couple were true. The actor's simple response:
"Yup ... :)"
Apparently, the hidden romance has gotten serious. There are no details on the engagement or any future wedding plans, and neither has released any official word.
