“Glee” and “30 Rock” actor (and Broadway superstar) Cheyenne Jackson married his longtime boyfriend in a Hamptons beach ceremony on Saturday, reports People.
The actor has been with physicist Monte Lapka for over 11 years.
After they tied the knot, Jackson took to Twitter to announce the happy news: “It’s official, after 11 years together, Zora’s no longer a bastard. Married the best man I’ve ever known.” (Zora is the couple’s dog “daughter.”)
Jackson, 36, previously shared his vision of a wedding with WNBC New York, saying it would be “Something small. My dream wedding involves just close friends and good music.”
He added that they'd "both be in tuxes. Unfortunately, nobody’s going to be wearing a dress, but that’s okay, too … Our dog would be there. Our dog, our daughter, Zora … Pretty boring, but something just nice and on the beach.”
Last year, Jackson and Lapka registered as domestic partners at New York’s City Hall, the actor told Out magazine. “I think we were filling in some forms for wills or insurance, and I just thought, 'Let’s just make this as legal as we can,'" the actor recalled. "It was with a bunch of Russian mail order brides, literally. And it was hilarious and it was romantic...our little secret.”
Now that gay marriage is legal in New York, we’re glad to see the "Glee" actor was able to make his dream wedding a reality.
