Ventimiglia married model Jarah Mariano in 2023
Ventimiglia was a good sport as Kimmel, 56, read him some of the emotions his fans expressed on X (formerly known as Twitter) when they learned in October 2023 that he quietly married Mariano earlier in the year.
One user posted, "Just found out the love of my life (milo ventimiglia [SIC]) got married to someone that isn't me (we've never even met) so brb i [SIC] will be jumping off very tall somethings."
"Well, I just found out the love of my life then I guess is [that social media user]," Ventimiglia joked. "I missed that one."
The actor went on to offer some encouragement to his admirers who are now feeling slightly more discouraged as they search for love.
"The point is, there's a lot of Milo Ventimiglias out there," he offered, appearing a bit confused by his own statement.
The Gilmore Girls star has been notoriously private about all of his relationships in the past, but the Instagram account Deuxmoi revealed he was dating the model in 2022.

In June 2023, Deuxmoi sparked rumors that the couple had wed when it reported that Mariano was seen wearing a "big ole diamond ring and band."
Ventimiglia, who stars in the upcoming action thriller Land of Bad with Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth, remained casually elusive about his wife when talking to Kimmel on Thursday. He called her a "wonderful woman" and said he was "very happy."
Mariano is from Hawaii, but she grew up in the same neighborhood as Ventimiglia, he told Kimmel.
