That last name can't be a coincidence.
Milo Ventimiglia, the notoriously private actor who brought Jess Mariano to the small screen on Gilmore Girls, got secretly married earlier this year, People reported today. Us Weekly was the first outlet to share the news. Ventimiglia tied the knot with model Jarah Mariano during a small, private ceremony with only "family and close friends" in attendance. She's most well-known for appearing in the 2008 and 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editions, as well as having Victoria's Secret campaigns under her belt. Ventimiglia, who is 46, and Mariano have never publicly confirmed their relationship, though Us reported that they purchased a home in Malibu together in the summer of 2022.

People adds that fans began to connect Ventimiglia and Mariano after Instagram gossip account Deuxmoi first revealed they were an item in 2022. In June 2023, Deuxmoi shared another tip, with a user submitting an image of Mariano wearing a "big ole diamond ring and band."
Ventimiglia has always kept his relationships private, telling People back in 2017 that he prefers to keep the spotlight on his projects, not who he's dating.
“I try to minimize myself so people can see the character and can really dive into the work,” he said. “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.”
