Due to one tweet, rumors are flying that Rossum secretly tied the knot with her fiancé, director Sam Esmail. It all started with yesterday's Emmy Award nominations announcement.

Esmail's series, Mr. Robot, was nominated for six Emmy Awards: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama, Outstanding Drama, Outstanding Writing for a Drama, Outstanding Music Composition, Outstanding Casting and Outstanding Sound Mixing. He released a statement to E! News about the honor, saying, "The entire team at Mr. Robot is thrilled with our nominations this morning. Today is officially shoot day 80 for Season 2 and we couldn't be happier to hear the news from set. We are humbled and honored to be in the company of such innovative, groundbreaking storytelling. On behalf of the cast and crew who continue to work tirelessly to make this show, as well as USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, thank you to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences."

Hold up. Is she saying that Rossum and Esmail are already married?

Well, maybe not. Rossum denied it in a tweet to E! News, but she did confirm that wedding plans are moving along.

"We're just chilling for a hot second," she said in a recent interview about her wedding. "I'm not even answering my family who asks me. I know everything. I'm just not sharing it... I'm honestly just chilling and enjoying it for now."

Rossum and Esmail have been dating since 2013, when he cast her in his directorial debut, Comet.
