We need a load of coffee for this news: Milo Ventimiglia is married! On October 30, Us Weekly confirmed that the actor secretly wed model Jarah Mariano (no relation to his beloved Gilmore Girls character, Jess Mariano) earlier this year. Although details about this celebrity wedding are sparse, we break down everything we know so far about their big day.

Milo Ventimiglia and Wife Jarah Mariano's Wedding Details

According to reports, Milo Ventimiglia and Jarah Mariano got married earlier in 2023 at a private ceremony attended by family and close friends. In exclusive wedding photos obtained by Us Weekly, the couple can be seen holding hands on their wedding day. Ventimiglia opted for a relaxed look, wearing a loose white button-down shirt over white slacks with a strand of greenery draped over his shoulders. The bride wore a simple white dress, which she accented with a matching lush white and green flower crown.

Although the actor, 46, never formally confirmed his relationship with the model, 38, the two were first linked in 2022 after the popular Instagram gossip account Deuxmoi posted photos of them on vacation together. Milo Ventimiglia and his wife were also spotted in California earlier this year after the This Is Us star purchased a house in Malibu.

Rumors of a possible wedding for Milo Ventimiglia and Jarah Mariano began swirling when Deuxmoi posted that she was seen wearing a "big ole diamond ring and band" this summer.

Not much is known about Milo Ventimiglia and his wife's relationship, notably because the actor opts to keep his love life out of the spotlight. In a 2017 interview with People, he said that his career in the entertainment industry played a role in this decision. "I try to minimize myself so people can see the character and can really dive into the work," he explained. "I try and remain as anonymous and invisible as I can so it doesn't take away from the experience of the men that I play. I don't know how interesting my life is any more than anyone else's."

In a different interview with Us Weekly the same year, he shared that his role as Jack Pearson on This Is Us inspired him to reflect on his future, including the possibility of getting married. "[The show] doesn't make me want to have a family any more than I think I'm built to want a strong family unit," he told the outlet. "It will happen when it happens. I'm not out seeking it. It's just kind of, I'm present in the space in my life that when it presents itself and it's right, I'm sure it will work out."
