Cardellini says she got proposed in New York in front of family and friends, recalling, 'He started getting choked up and then got on his knee.'
Another "Mad Men" star is heading to the altar for marriage. After Jared Harris proposed to Allegra Riggio, now co-star Linda Cardellini announces her engagement to longtime boyfriend Steven Rodriguez. She told the hosts on "The View" that he popped the question in New York on Thursday, June 6.
"I was surprised that it was happening at that moment," the bride-to-be recalled. "We were actually with some of the people I love most: my sister, and my cousins and one of my best friends Maura [Tierney] . . . and we were sitting, and he started getting choked up and then got on his knee. It was very beautiful."
Cardellini, 37, delivered a baby girl Lilah-Rose in February 2012. Shortly after giving birth to her first child with Rodriguez, she had steamy scenes with Jon Hamm's Don Draper on the AMC drama series. "I just lost 55 pounds," she said of her post-baby body. "I had gained and lost 55 pounds."
