Rilo Kiley's Blake Sennett - Engaged to Winona Ryder?

There are rumors circulating that Blake Sennett, guitarist for the indie rock band Rilo Kiley, is engaged to Winona Ryder. The L.A.-based Rilo Kiley has been on tour in recent months supporting their latest album, "Under the Blacklight," which was released last year. Rilo Kiley has been one of my favorite bands of the last few years and have a wide following in the indie rock world.

Like Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis, Blake Sennett was a child actor (and has had some roles as an adult as well). Sennett appeared in series including "Family Ties," "The Wonder Years," "Boy Meets World," and "Third Rock from the Sun," usually under the name Blake Swendson or Blake Soper.

Rilo Kiley took a break as a band while Lewis and Sennett each recording and touring to support their solo efforts. Jenny Lewis toured as Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins; Sennett had an alt-rock band called The Elected.

It remains to be seen if these Winona Ryder/Blake Sennett engagement rumors are true.
