Kirsten Hedlund — it has a nice ring to it! Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund are one step closer to getting married, a source reveals exclusively to Us Weekly. The couple first met while filming On the Road in 2012 and currently live in L.A. together.
"The engagement is coming soon," a source tells Us, adding that Hedlund moving in "strengthened their relationship."
The Midnight Special actress, 32, recently supported Hedlund, 30, at the Hollywood premiere of his World War II drama Unbroken on Dec. 15. Back in January 2013, he opened up about their mostly private relationship, specifically their (disastrous!) first date, during an interview with Details magazine.
"I took her out on a 3 a.m. canoe ride. It was not a stable canoe," the hunky Minnesota native jokingly admitted. "We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, sh-tty water, like golf-pond water."
Fortunately for both stars, the relationship has gone more smoothly since then, with Dunst even thinking about starting a family. "I'm in baby mode because two of my really good friends are pregnant right now. One of them is pretty chilled and the other's like, 'I can't wait to have a glass of wine!'" Dunst told Red magazine in August 2014. "I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby."
