“Saturday Night Live” star Kenan Thompson is a married man, reports Us Weekly.
Thompson, 33, and model Christine Evangeline married last Friday in the comedian’s hometown of Atlanta.
"[They're] very happy. They've lived together as a couple and were excited to share the moments with close friends," a source tells Us. The lovebirds were introduced the traditional Hollywood way: by a talent manager.
Mariah’s hubby Nick Cannon served as emcee and D.J. at the reception, which was held at Atlanta’s Georgia Aquarium. "Being in the rented out aquarium made the night even more magical," reported the source. "Christine loved the dolphins."
Kenan and Christine joined quite a few others in marrying on 11/11/11. Fellow Atlanta celebs Kim Zolciak (of “Real Housewives” fame) and Kroy Biermann said “I do” on the date, and Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O'Connell renewed their vows.
Before Kenan joined “SNL” in 2003, he was known as a child star, appearing in Nickelodeon shows “All That” and “Kenan and Kel.” The funnyman's movies include “Good Burger,” “Fat Albert,” “Snakes on a Plane” and “The Smurfs.”
