Jenner Engaged to “Glee” Co-Star Melissa Benoist

He hasn’t even graduated from William McKinley High yet, but Blake Jenner is already hearing wedding bells.

The 20-year-old half-Cuban American and his Glee co-star Melissa Benoist are engaged, according to Us Weekly.

Blake Jenner and Melissa Benoist

Jenner and Benoist were romantically linked after sharing screen time on the Fox musical dramedy.

Jenner, who landed a role on Glee after winning the second season of Oxygen’s The Glee Project, confirmed the rumor during a live chat with fan. “Yup,” he said with a smile.

Reps for both Blake and Melissa decline to comment on the couple’s personal lives.

Jenner and Benoist’s characters have been caught up in an on-screen love triangle with Jacob Artist’s character the show.

Ryan Murphy, one of the masterminds behind Glee, seems to have a knack for matchmaking. Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, whom he paired up as on/off couple Rachel Berry and Finn Hudson on the show, have also ended up dating in real life.
