Former Friday Night Lights Star Zach Gilford Marries Actress Kiele Sanchez

Zach Gilford, best known for playing quarterback Matt Saracen on Friday Night Lights, took his first of two steps toward becoming a family man yesterday. The actor walked down the aisle and gave his I-do to fiancée Kiele Sanchez in a lovely ceremony in Napa Valley, California. A few months from now, he’ll take that second step when Sanchez gives birth to their first child early in the New Year.

Gilford met his new wife back in 2010 when they worked together on the pilot The Matadors. The ABC show never got off the ground, but in retrospect, it was clearly a good thing for the two actors. They were engaged not long after and have helped each other to continued career success. According to Zap2It, Sanchez is a regular on A&E’s The Glades and Gilford will next be seen in The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

It’s unclear how the impending addition to their family might affect either of their work schedules, but regardless of what happens, Pop Blend sends out its sincerest well-wishes to the happy couple. Becoming a family unit might not offer the glitz of landing a big acting role, but it should be the most emotionally satisfying journey of their lives. We’ll keep you updated if more information about the wedding or the impending birth become available.
