's Pam Beesly isn't the only one who's bound to tie the knot these days. Her portrayer, Jenna Fischer, just got engaged and will soon walk down the aisle with fiancÃ© Lee Kirk. The Office
actress, 35, and writer Lee Kirk, 37, have been dating since January of last year but have only stepped out publicly for the first time at the Emmy Awards in September 2008. At the time, Fischer described Kirk to Peopl
e as "my super-cute boyfriend."
Fischer, whose credits include Blades of Glory, The Promotion
and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
, got engaged to Kirk on June 30 while both were vacationing in Europe.
This will be the first marriage for Lee Kirk, whose credits include The Man Who Invented the Moon, The Benefits of Drinking Whiskey, Pants on Fire
and The Specials.
On the other hand, this will mark Fischer's second trip down the aisle as she was previously married to director James Gunn, whom she divorced in July 2007 after six years of marriage.
Meanwhile, Fischer's character Pam is currently engaged to Jim Halpert, played by John Krasinski. The Office
couple nearly got married in 'CafÃ© Disco" but decided that they both want a "cheesy" wedding. For fans wishing that these two lovebirds will tie the knot by next season, here's some good news: According to TV Guide
, the show is planning for a fall wedding. However, I'm not quite sure how this will all work out now that a baby is seemingly on the way.
Fans will just have to stay tuned when The Office
returns for season 6 on September 17 on NBC. -Kris De Leon, BuddyTV Staff Columnist
