Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel and Mad Men alum Vincent Kartheiser have filed for divorce.

Kartheiser filed for divorce from Bledel star this past Wednesday. Both Kartheiser’s reps and Bledel had no further comment at this time.

Bledel and Kartheiser met on the set of Mad Men in 2012. Kartheiser played the role of Pete Campbell, and Bledel appeared in season 5 as Campbell’s mistress Beth Dawes. Shortly after the pair appeared on the show together, they were spotted kissing and confirmed their relationship. They tied the knot in a private ceremony in 2014, and welcomed their first child in fall 2015.

The pair have been known to keep their relationship quite private and rarely make public appearances together or speak about their relationship with the press. They also both do not actively use social media.

Kartheiser shared more about their decision to be private with their relationship in a conversation with Vulture. “It’s something I realized about the most important things in my life,” Kartheiser said in 2014. “If I share them with the world and I open that door to their fuming anger that they need to get out or their adoration that they want to flaunt, it lessens it. It cheapens it; it weakens it. And it’s magical, love, and all of that is profoundly spiritual, and it just doesn’t feel right.”
