Ricki Lake married jewelry designer Christian Evans in a secret wedding ceremony on Sunday, the talk show host announced on Tuesay. Ricki Lake and Christian Evans have been dating for about 18 months. Lake, who was previously married to artist and illustrator Rob Sussman, was thrilled over getting hitched for the second time.
“It was a beautiful moment I will never forget,” Lake, 40, told People magazine, which will feature photos and details on the wedding in its next issue. “I wasn’t anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited.” Christian Evans, 40, eloped with Lake to tie the knot in a secret wedding ceremony on Sunday in southern California.
“I didn’t think it would happen at this point in my life,” Lake told People. “We just clicked,” she said of Evans. “It just feels like he was the right one all along.”
On her Twitter feed on Tuesday morning, a photo of the Ricki Lake wedding dress had fans raving over how beautiful the talk show host looked to walk down the aisle. “Yup. This is me,” Lake wrote when she posted the photo above. “Sadie Sadie married lady. 🙂 🙂 Love is in the air. Xo”
“It’s official, and I am so happy!” the Dancing With the Stars alumni added.
Ricki Lake and Rob Sussman divorced in 2004 after a 10-year marriage. The former couple has two children together: Milo, 15, and Owen, 10. Here’s hoping this second marriage will go the distance for Ricki this time around!
Lake is currently working on a new talk show to debut later this year, currently slated to debut on September 10.
