Milo Ventimiglia knows he broke some hearts when it was revealed he got married to Jarah Mariano last year!

"I'm sure there's a few broken hearts — female and male, I don't know, maybe," the This Is Us star, 46, admitted to Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night.

Ventimiglia was a good sport as Kimmel, 56, read him some of the emotions his fans expressed on X (formerly known as Twitter) when they learned in October 2023 that he quietly married Mariano earlier in the year.

One user posted, "Just found out the love of my life (milo ventimiglia [SIC]) got married to someone that isn't me (we've never even met) so brb i [SIC] will be jumping off very tall somethings."

"Well, I just found out the love of my life then I guess is [that social media user]," Ventimiglia joked. "I missed that one."

The actor went on to offer some encouragement to his admirers who are now feeling slightly more discouraged as they search for love.

"The point is, there's a lot of Milo Ventimiglias out there," he offered, appearing a bit confused by his own statement.

Ventimiglia and Mariano, 39, tied the knot in 2023 in a private ceremony attended by family and friends, PEOPLE reported in October. The event was planned by Troy Williams of Simply Troy.

In June 2023, Deuxmoi sparked rumors that the couple had wed when it reported that Mariano was seen wearing a "big ole diamond ring and band."

Ventimiglia, who stars in the upcoming action thriller Land of Bad with Russell Crowe and Liam Hemsworth, remained casually elusive about his wife when talking to Kimmel on Thursday. He called her a "wonderful woman" and said he was "very happy."

Mariano is from Hawaii, but she grew up in the same neighborhood as Ventimiglia, he told Kimmel.
