Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt

Has Jon Hamm finally made an honest woman of his longtime girlfriend, 24's Jennifer Westfeldt? "That rumor comes up every six months or so it seems," Hamm told Us Magazine at Charlize Theron's Africa Outreach Benefit in NYC. "But if you hear anything different, you let me know."

Happily unmarried

The 39-year-old Mad Men star revealed to Parade that both he and Westfeldt, 40, grew up in divorced households, which has made both of them weary of marriage.

"I don't have the marriage chip," Hamm said. "Jen is the love of my life, and we've already been together four times longer than my parents were married."

As the busy "it" man of the moment, how does Hamm keep his relationship going strong? "Like anything else, you pay attention to it and work hard at it," he said.

Babies a possibility

Westfeldt told In Touch she feels the same way about marriage. "We have always felt married," she said. "We just had our 12th year anniversary last week and we have a house and a dog! At some point we may, but it doesn't matter to us one way or the other."

She also revealed that starting a family was not out of the question. "It's definitely something we're talking about," she says.
