It’s officially official: Glee co-stars Blake Jenner (Ryder) and Melissa Benoist (Marley) are engaged! Not only have the on- and off-screen lovebirds confirmed their engagement, but they’re opening up to E! Online about what they hope their upcoming wedding will be like.
News that Blake, 21, and Melissa, 25, were headed to the altar broke way back in early July, but neither of the actors has said anything to confirm the news in the time since then. Now, they’re ready to shout their love from the mountaintops.
That long-awaited yodel of confirmation arrived at the December 8 Trevor Live event for the Trevor Project, where Melissa wore her gorgeous diamond engagement ring in public for the first time. The husband and wife-to-be couldn’t have been cuter as they giggled their way through an interview with E!’s Marc Malkin.
They laughed and joked around while chatting about their holiday plans and gift wish lists. (Melissa wants another dog — the couple already has two — while Blake want’s a mini-fridge, because, well...mini-fridges are awesome and he sort of has an “obsession” with them.)
Okay, but onto the wedding! Like their co-star Matthew Morrison (Schue), the couple isn’t planning on walking down the aisle anytime soon. Blake says they’re both too busy with work to start making preparations yet. "We're just excited that it's happening,” he adds. “We're just focusing on work right now so whenever that happens…"
One thing they do know for sure: No celebrity super-sized wedding, please! Melissa says she wants a ceremony that is "small and intimate and nice." For a low-key, private couple like these two, we think that sounds perfect.
