46-Year-Old 'Criminal Minds' Kirsten Vangsness Was Engaged Twice But Was Never Married

June 21, 2019

If you are a big Criminal Minds' fan, you surely like Kirsten Vangsness, who portrayed Derek Morgan's favorite girl, Penelope Garcia. 

First relationship

The Hollywood actress is believed to be 'queer', as she describes herself. For five years (2009-2013), Kirsten Vangsness was dating a former assistant editor on Fox's 24, Melanie Goldstein. She even was her fiancée as they were about to get married. 

Fiancée is a very fun word to say because I never thought I would have a fiancée or be a fiancée. 

However, the couple didn't walk down the aisle due to the absence of same-sex marriage at that time. And later, in 2013, Kirsten and Melanie called it quits due to an unknown reason.

Second relationship

In 2015, the Criminal Minds star madly fell for actor and writer, Keith Hanson, and the two got engaged. According to PEOPLE, Kirsten Vangsness was ready to "mush up" with him forever.

She candidly revealed in the 2015 interview:

He’s the perfect partner for me and I feel like we evolve. When you’re so into somebody and you get to just mush up next to them – that’s the best part of it.

Back then, the Hollywood actress revealed she was already preparing some things for the upcoming wedding, but it's been four years, and there is no news about their marriage. 

In 2016, Kirsten Vangsness said "love is messy" on Smashing Interviews Magazine. When she was asked about the wedding bells, the actress simply responded:

You know, I am the worst at the planning. There's the question, "Will you marry me?" I answer, "Yes. I will do that." I don't know when it will happen, but I'll give you an answer. We don't have any plans in the works right now, but that's alright because love is messy.

As you can understand, it's unknown whether or not 46-year-old Kirsten Vangsness is still engaged to Keith Hanson.
