The couple, who split their time between her house in New York City and his place in Los Angeles, have been spending quite some time on the West Coast recently. Enough that they enrolled Michelle’s daughter Matilda Ledger in a gymnastics class!
The cute pair picked Matilda up on August 6th looking ever fashionable. Michelle wore a seventies-style, light green printed shift dress paired with clog-like heels and a wicker purse while Jason donned his usual casual jeans and a checkered button-down. The trio were all smiles as they left, trying to blend in with the other parents retrieving their children.
Read on for details on the couple and if Jason really is ending his seven year run on How I Met Your Mother.
This public outing comes on the heels of rumors that season 8 of How I Met Your Mother will be Jason’s last. The rumors started after an Austrian website published an interview with the star where he supposedly said, “It’s great to do some ‘Rated R’ stuff again, because I’ve been playing the nice guy for quite a long time now. That’s why I’m gonna quit ‘How I met your Mother’ after the eight season.”
Jason leaving the show would make sense, as his movie career has really taken off in the last couple of years. He has starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Knocked Up, I Love You, Man, The Muppets and The Five Year Engagement and recently finished filming This Is 40 with Megan Fox and The End of the World with James Franco, Emma Watson, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Michael Cera and Paul Rudd.
Even though it makes sense, his reps are denying the rumors, saying, “Perhaps something got lost in translation, but season nine hasn’t even been addressed yet.”
The couple seems to be stronger than ever despite being the constant conversation in the rumor department. First speculation over their (impending) engagement, then about Jason leaving the show that made him famous, what’s next? Hopefully not breakup rumors, those tend not to end well.
