Benoist and Jenner met on the set of Glee back in 2012. After a two-year engagement, they married in March 2015. They have no children together.

Earlier this year, Benoist talked lovingly of Jenner in an interview with People, saying, “We only have fun working together. He’s my person to act with. He’s my favorite scene partner, always.”

Jenner appeared on two episodes of Supergirl with Benoist as well.

The last time Benoist posted a pic on Instagram of Jenner was back in August 2016 on his birthday.
