Prepon and Foster met each other when Prepon was 18, through mutual friendships with The 70s Show co-stars Danny Masterson and Ashton Kutcher. The couple got engaged in July 2016 after several months of dating. It was in August 2017 that Prepon and Foster had their first child, Ella.

According to TMZ, the couple was spotted at the City Clerk’s office in NYC a couple of weeks ago, presumably to obtain their marriage license.

Planning the wedding around their busy celebrity schedules wasn’t easy. “He’s going off to do two movies,” Prepon told E! News at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

She added, “We want a really small wedding but we have a lot of people that we love and care about. It’s weird, [but] apparently doing the list for your wedding is a whole thing that could cause some issues. Our cast alone is like, 50 people!”

The actress also opened about her pregnancy when she appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan in June 2017 admitting that it escalated very quickly. “It’s kind of weird because it sneaks up on you, you’re like, ‘I can’t believe it’s been eight months already,’ ” she said at the time. “But then you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, she needs to come out already.’ ”

Nevertheless, Prepon is all the more excited to start a family of her own with Foster considering it “so wonderful and such a blessing”.

Prepon, 38, apart from her role in Orange is the New Black, she has also acted in popular shows like How I Met Your Mother, House, Celebrity Ghost Stories, Castle, etc. She has also been nominated for The 70’s show and been awarded for Orange is the New Black.

Ben Foster,37, is well known for his roles in The Punisher (2004), X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), The Messenger (2009), The Mechanic (2011) and The Program (2015). He was nominated for a Saturn Award and a Satellite Award for his roles in 3:10 to Yuma in 2007. He has also won an Independent Spirit Award for playing Tanner Howard in Hell or High Water in 2016. In early 2012, Foster was in a relationship with actress Robin Wright. However, their relationship was on and off until he met Prepon and got engaged to her in October 2016.
