Gilmore Girls alum Alexis Bledel and her husband Vincent Kartheiser are divorcing.

The couple’s divorce comes after 8 years of marriage. The pair also have a son together.

According to reports, the pair filed divorce papers in New York this month.

A reason for the divorce has not been publicised.

Kartheiser filed for divorce from the Handmaids Tale star on August 10th. US Weekly confirmed the news after obtaining papers from the Putnam County Supreme Court in New York.

Bledel, best known for playing Rory Gilmore in Gilmore Girls, met Kartheiser in 2012. The pair met when Bledel was starring alongside Kartheiser on Mad Men.

The actor popped the question in March 2013 and then married Bledel the following June. They welcomed their first child together, a baby boy, in 2015.

Earlier this year, Bledel revealed she was stepping away from her role in The Handmaid’s Tale.

The actress said it wasn’t an easy decision to make, but was looking forward to her future.

Bledel stated: “After much thought, I felt I had to step away from The Handmaid’s Tale at this time.

“I am forever grateful to Bruce Miller for writing such truthful and resonant scenes for Emily, and to Hulu, MGM, the cast, and crew for their support.”
