The couple is yet to make the announcement publicly. For a long time, Kirsten kept her pregnancy a secret and it wasn't until Kirsten was photographed at LAX in January with a visible baby bump under an ankle-length blue dress and black cardigan that fans knew what was coming. The couple began dating in 2016 after they met on the sets of FX series Fargo. 

The pair played the role of a married couple and before they knew it, they found a chemistry in real life which they never thought they would. While the couple is over the moon after welcoming their baby boy, Kirsten did not always have the same thought about having a kid. 

In an interview with Marie Claire in July this year, Kirsten had opened up about how at first she was not too keen on having a child but had a change of heart when she became a godmother. It was after this particular incident that the actress knew one day she would also like to become a mother. 

"I wasn’t one of those 'I need a baby!' people until my goddaughter was born," she said. "I love her so much. That love is just like… you can’t experience that unless you have a kid. I put her to bed last night and she woke up this morning and said to her mom, 'Where’s Kiki?' I just love that love. That’s what I want," the Fargo star told the magazine. 

While the Kirsten and Jesse met on the set, the two share a very strong bond and understand what the other needs. In the same interview, Kirsten described Jesse as "my favorite actor I’ve ever worked with" and her "best friend." According to Page Six, Jesse popped the big question over the Golden Globes Weekend and Kirsten was quick to respond with a "yes".

Prior to their engagement news, there were rumors that the couple had been dating for a while as they were seen kissing at an Emmys after-party for their FX show in September. At the same time, they were spotted together several times in LA which made the rumors all the more believable.

In fact, Jesse only had sweet things to say about Kirsten when he was asked about her during Friday Night Lights show's PaleyFest panel at the Paley Center for Media in NYC. The actor could not stop himself from gushing about how wonderful Kristen was as an actor and as a person. "It was a gift," he said at the time. "I loved Kirsten's work for a long time, and I was really excited once I’d met her, and she’s a great person."

We're both actors that just… have fun with the material," he added. Even though Kristen confessed that she is not in a rush to tie the knot anytime soon, while talking to  Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest in an interview, she did admit that she was using Pinterest to collect ideas for a perfect wedding.
