In news we never (ever) saw coming, Mad Men star January Jones is reportedly dating former Bachelor Nick Viall! You might be thinking “in what world does Betty Draper she date a four-time losing Bachelor?” right? But according to Page Six, the pair has actually been together for the last few months. The website reports that January and Nick started seeing each other two months ago, right after she admitted on The Late Late Show that she was a Bachelor superfan.

“[Nick][ asked me to battle him on Lip Sync Battle,” she explained during an interview in November. “So is that, like, his way of asking me out, or does he have a problem with me? I don’t know what that was. But I declined because I don’t need to be humiliated.”

“You don’t know if you like him or if he’s a scumbag — and I think that’s why I’m attracted to him, maybe?” she added. We're going to assume that Nick saw this interview and seized the opportunity because instead of lip-syncing, the two went out for a drink and have been dating ever since.

January's reaction when host James Corden jokes that Nick is in the building is also enough proof that the actress is completely smitten. Watch below!

Page Six also reports that Nick celebrated January's 40th birthday with her and some of her former Mad Men co-stars (including new Sabrina the Teenage Witch star, Kiernan Shipka) in Los Angeles over the weekend. Unfortunately, there are no photos of the birthday bash except the one below.

The rumored new couple has also been liking and commenting each other's Instagram photos — which nowadays is just about as close to a confirmed relationship as you can get without saying it! The actress left an eye-rolling emoji and a heart on one of Nick's recent pics and the reality star also commented on a photo of January's late dog, writing, “R.I.P. Max.” Clearly, he met her dog — proving it's pretty serious.

Is it just us that's noticing a trend? First, Wells Adams and Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland, and now January and Nick! They should change The Bachelor‘s to “The One-Way Ticket to Dating a Celebrity Show.”

January has had a string of high-profile boyfriends over the years, including Ashton Kutcher, Will Forte, and Josh Groban. She's also been linked to Jeremy Piven and Jim Carrey in the past.

Meanwhile, Nick's dating history has been very public ever since he joined Bachelor Nation in 2014. After dating Andi Dorfman, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jen Saviano on The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise, the 31-year-old split from Vanessa Grimaldi in August after he proposed to the Canadian beauty on season 21 of his very own season of The Bachelor. The two seemed very much in love, but their relationship often made headlines with reports of them fighting and not seeing eye-to-eye.

If January and Nick are actually together, then maybe she's the reason why he's had such a hard time finding someone on the show! However, we can still all admit the news is wildly unexpected.
