The New York native, who wed the House of Cards writer in September 2016 in Connecticut, “definitely” wanted to be a mom growing up. She told Kelly Clarkson, “I had a little baby carriage and a baby doll.”

The couple met in 2014 on the set of Sex Ed, which Kennedy, wrote and his now-wife starred in. He proposed in October 2015, and Elliott announced the news via Instagram with a PDA picture, captioned, “Goin to the chapel!”

Three months later, the Odd Mom Out alum told The Knot about her “surprise” engagement. “We’ve been dating for a year and a half, I think,” Elliott told the outlet in January 2016. “He did it in our apartment and it was beautiful. There were flowers [and candles] everywhere. It was really beautiful and he was traditional and got down on one knee. It was just very simple, but lovely and wonderful.”

Kennedy asked her parents for permission before the proposal and presented Elliott with his grandmother’s engagement ring.
