One of the most endearing facts about "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" — actually, of the only ones — is the marriage of co-stars Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson, who fell in love during the early seasons of the long-running FXX comedy. Married inthe couple now have two kids together and are getting ready to premiere the 13th season of their hit series in September.
How they fell for each other wasn't public knowledge, Olson recently disclosed on the Armchair Expert podcast, where she was the guest of Dax Shepard, a former co-star with "The Groundlings" in Los Angeles. Shepard, who's close friends with Olson and McElhenney, broached the subject during a conversation that extended more than two hours.
Olson explained that she and McElhenney, the show's creator, didn't gravitate toward each other romantically right away, but he made an immediate impression on her. Olson said the lines, in Shepard's words, got "blurry as f" when there was some kind of Fox party, alcohol was involved and she decided to make a move.
The romance progressed from there—and Olson said she knew how McElhenney felt long before he even realized it.
