He reportedly reached out to her after she publicly declared herself a Bachelor "superfan."

In what could be the most bizarre piece of news I've ever reported on, January Jones is dating Nick Viall. 

According to Page Six, the Mad Men actress and the former Bachelor have been in secret relationship for a few months. 

"They’ve been dating for about two months," a source said. "She went on ‘The Late Show’ in ­mid-November and said Nick had reached out to her and tried to get her to lip-sync battle with him. She declined, but then he asked her out to a drink and she accepted. They’ve been seeing each other since.”

Sounds like a very Nick-ish way to ask out a Golden Globe-nominated actress.

Anyone who has dipped their toe in Bachelor Nation recently knows that Viall had reportedly found love with final contestant Vanessa Grimaldi. The couple got engaged during the finale of the 21st season. 

They broke up just a few months later.

“My relationship with Nick and experience on The Bachelor has given me so many amazing and memorable moments in my life, and I am forever grateful,” Grimaldi told PEOPLE. “Nick and I were always transparent about the challenges in a relationship. We certainly had ours. I fell for him hard, and when you fall in love that hard, your heart breaks even harder.”

Well, Viall's heart surely isn't brokenhearted anymore. 

He and Jones' courtship started when she admitted on The Late Late Show With James Corden that she is a Bachelor "superfan."

"You don't know if you like him or if he's a scumbag," Jones joked with Corden about Viall, "but that's why I'm attracted to him, maybe.

The former Bachelor was reportedly at Jones' 40th birthday party. She celebrated with him and some of her former Mad Men co-stars at Inkwell in L.A. on Saturday.

Representatives for both Jones and Viall have not yet commented on the rumor.

Jones has a son, Xander, who was born in 2011. She has declined to publicly say who his father is.
