The Mad Men actor filed for divorce from the Gilmore Girls star in Putnam County Supreme Court in New York state on August 10, according to a report in US Weekly. They wed in Ojai, California in June 2014 after meeting on the set of Mad Men three years prior.

Following their "intimate" wedding, Alexis and Vincent welcomed a baby boy in the fall of 2015.

No reason has been given for the reported split, which comes as no surprise as Alexis is notoriously private when it comes to her personal life. The 40-year-old never publicly announced her pregnancy and made no statement when she gave birth – her son's name is still not known after seven years.

In fact, it was her Gilmore Girls co-star Scott Patterson who revealed that Alexis was a mom in May 2016.

"It was great to see her. She's really blossomed as a woman and now she's a proud new mother and married and happy,' he told Glamour magazine.

Alexis and Vincent wed in 2014

"I remember her as an 18-year-old kid, fresh out of college coming into Hollywood and being a little overwhelmed. She's just the most likable, intelligent person and adorable human being. She hasn't changed at all. She looks the same."

Revealing the sex of her baby, Scott added: "We're comparing notes because my son is about a year and a half older than her young son. I'm showing her photos and videos and what to expect."

Vincent also shared Alexis' views on keeping their personal life out of the spotlight. "It's something I realized about the most important things in my life," he told Vulture.

The pair kept their relationship private

"If I share them with the world and I open that door to their fuming anger that they need to get out or their adoration that they want to flaunt, it lessens it."

He added: "It cheapens it; it weakens it. And it's magical, love, and all of that is...profoundly spiritual, and it just doesn't feel right."
