Earlier this year The Act became a massive hit for Hulu (no word yet on season 2, sorry!) and as a result, the real-life Gypsy Rose Blanchard became a source of curiosity for many. That interest only intensified when she announced that she was engaged while still in prison.

ENews has the first picture of Ken, her fiancé (whose last name has been omitted, for obvious privacy reasons), when he met Gypsy Rose’s father and stepmother, Rod and Kristy Blanchard, for the first time. The image was posted on their Instagram account a few days ago.

Gypsy Rose is currently serving a 10-year sentence for her role alongside Nicholas Godejohn in the murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, who physically and mentally abused her daughter as a result of suspected Munchausen by proxy syndrome. She plans to marry Ken when she is released from prison.

People spoke to Gypsy Rose’s step-mother Kristy, who had this to say about Ken:

“We really do like him and we hope to get to know him better,” Kristy Blanchard tells PEOPLE, adding that they talk to him often. “He loves Gypsy very much, and you can clearly see that when he talks about her and looks at her.”

If you ask me (and let’s be honest, no one did) it’s hard to find happiness in this mixed up world of ours. So, if you’re able to find love, while in prison no less, more power to you. Due to the high-profile nature of Gypsy Rose’s conviction, Ken is probably well aware of what she’s in jail for, so there’s no awkward conversation/moment of revelation to be had on that front. Gypsy Rose’s childhood and young adulthood was anything but normal, so if she’s able to build a life with this guy once she’s out of prison, it seems like a pretty happy outcome, especially if her family is there to support her as well.
