Talk show host and actress Ricki Lake married jewelry designer Christian Evans on Sunday, April 8, 2012 in a secret ceremony in southern California.
“It was a beautiful moment I will never forget,” Lake told People about her wedding day. “I wasn’t anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited.”
Lake, 43, and Evans, 40, began dating 18 months ago. The couple announced their engagement last August via Twitter.
“Thrilled to share some happy news with you,” Lake Tweeted when the couple got engaged, including a photo of herself and her now fiance.
Tuesday, Lake Tweeted a photo of herself in a wedding dress and holding a bouquet, with the caption: “Yup. This is me…. Sadie Sadie married lady. :) :) Love is in the air. Xo”
Lake has two sons – Milo, 15, and Owen, 10 – with her first husband, Rob Sussman. After her split with Sussman in 2003, Lake was not sure she would ever marry again.
“I didn’t think it would happen at this point in my life,” Lake said. “We just clicked,” she says about Evans. “It just feels like he was the right one all along.”
