Mad Men star Kit Williamson gets engaged to John Halbach
Mad Men star Kit Williamson is engaged to his long-term partner and fellow actor John Halbach .
The star, who played Ed Gifford on the series which will soon come to an end, said the couple had originally been content without tying the knot.
“We’ve been together for more than eight years,” Williamson said in a statement.
“We kind of resisted marriage at first because we were already committed to one another, but all the progress that’s happened over the last few years, and the likelihood of a favourable Supreme Court ruling in June, has made us really think about what marriage means to us and our relationship. To deny our right to get married is to deny our relationship’s validity.”
Williamson also co-stars alongside his fiancé on Logo’s EastSiders.
The couple are yet to decide on a location, as Williamson said they were deciding between LA, New York or somewhere more far-flung.
He said their friends and family are spread across the US, so picking a location might be difficult.
