Supergirl and Mon-El shippers, this is going to tickle your fancy!
Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood just made their red carpet debut at the 2018 Tony Awards last night (June 10) – and they totally make a picture perfect couple! Melissa was sizzling in a blush pink Dior dress and Chris looked mighty fine in a black tux.
Melissa was an award presenter on the awards show and brought Chris as her date to the event. This marks their first public appearance as a couple.
The two met on the set of the second season of “Supergirl,” where Melissa plays the titular character, and Chris was her on-screen love interest, Mon-El. At the time, Melissa was still married to former “Glee” co-star Blake Jenner and Chris was in a relationship with “Containment” co-star Hanna Mangan-Lawrence.
But months after they each went through their (pretty public) break ups, they were spotted arriving in L.A. together, and even walking each other’s dogs. How cute is that?
They may have played a pair of star-crossed lovers on-screen, but they make a super adorable couple in real life.
Melissa is also currently making her Broadway debut as Carole King on the musical “Beautiful”, which is running through August 4.
