Patrick Stewart marries with Ian McKellen's help

Sir Ian McKellen is a man of his word.

After agreeing to officiate friend and "X-Men" co-star Patrick Stewart's wedding with jazz singer Sunny Ozell, McKellen stepped up to the plate - or would that be pulpit? - on Sunday.

"I did my part," McKellen confirmed on Facebook Sunday, sharing a photo of himself holding up a T-shirt and certificate that ID'd him as a "Doctor of Divinity."

According to reports, Stewart, 73, and Ozell, 35, married September 8 after dating for five years. The actor confirmed his new union on Twitter with a simple "Yes, married" tweet. Judging from the photo he shared, the couple found a way to keep their matrimony friendly to kids and kids at heart:

Stewart's marriage to Ozell is his third. The "Star Trek" actor was previously married to Sheila Falconer from 1966 to 1990, and to Wendy Neuss, from 2000 to 2003.

    I read that McKellan didn't want any part of this at first, but he soon learned...

      As if she actually has to change any diapers. Why in the world do you think any one actually weds a man that old? Well asides from the fact that she can brag that she was married to Patrick Stewart what cool freaking thing have you done just by waking up today.

      Well, she looks older than 35 and he looks quite a bit younger than 73, so it evens out 🙂
