‘Mad Men’ actor Jared Harris and his now-wife Allegra Riggio were both recovering from bad breakups when they got together.
Jared Harris is mad about his new wife Allegra Riggio.
The “Mad Men” star and his lady love were married Saturday, reports Us Weekly.
Sources confirmed the couple was hitched on a yacht in Miami on Nov. 9 and it didn’t take long for Riggio to share the good news.
“Just married. <3 #TeamHarris #Jally #MarriageEnsued,” she tweeted Saturday evening.
The 51-year-old actor popped the big question in June and reportedly presented Riggio with a custom-made, heart-shaped diamond ring in a rose gold setting by Erica Courtney.
The couple fell madly in love in 2009 after both suffered failed relationships with others.
“Jared and I met at Bar Lubitsch in April 2009,” she told Us in a previous interview. “He was suffering through the final throes of a particularly nasty divorce, and I was at my lowest, most miserable moment.”
Riggio allowed her heart to lead her to Los Angeles only to have it broken. In a lonely moment, she coincidently met Harris when they both attended a comedy show. Their shared chuckles unexpectedly jumpstarted the healing process for them both.

Allegra Riggio married Jared Harris on Saturday. The pair had been dating since April 2009.
“That evening I was desperate for a laugh,” she recalled. “Jared had the same thought and we ended up making the same decision to peel ourselves off our respective couches to see a mutual friend visiting from NYC to do stand-up.”
After the show, Riggio and Harris attended a party with their mutual comedian friend, and it was then that they entered each other’s lives, changing the course on their previous grim love outcomes.
“Much champagne was enjoyed, friends were made, and that’s when Jared and I met,” she added.
A second run-in the following night turned into a growing admiration and eventual love between Riggio and Harris.
“We just wanted to do everything together,” she continued. “Then, against all rhyme or reason and all the odds, our heavily damaged hearts began to heal.”
While they both “swore never to speak of marriage,” that changed when Harris proposed in June and Riggio obviously accepted.
Now, the couple, who once turned their backs on love, were giving it another try with each other.
“We’re married!!!!!” she tweeted along with a photo of them kissing. In the lovely photo the couple is holding what appears to be glasses of champagne while Riggio, who is adorned with angle wings, holds her bouquet in the other hand that shows off her diamond ring.
