Actor Patrick Stewart has reportedly been dating his much younger girlfriend, 35-year-old singer Sunny Ozell, since 2008—at 73, Stewart is more than twice her age. But the large age difference doesn’t seem to be of any concern to this celebrity couple. After a six-month engagement, Stewart and Ozell finally made their May-December relationship official with marriage.
The celebrity couple tied the knot this past weekend, with Stewart’s X-Men co-star, Sir Ian McKellen, conducting the ceremony—McKellen revealed back in March that he was going to be officiating Stewart and Ozell’s wedding. Stewart shared the marriage news with one simple tweet, reading, “Yes, married.” The tweet also included a candid picture of Stewart and his new young wife buried in a ball pool—it looks like this celebrity couple still knows how to have fun.
McKellen confirmed the celebrity couple’s marriage news by tweeting a picture of himself holding up a T-shirt with the word “Minister” on it, along with his “Doctor of Divinity” certificate (the certificate that proves he was ordained.) McKellen’s tweet was accompanied by a simple caption: “I did my part.”
This is Stewarts’s third marriage. His first marriage ended in 1990 after 24 years and two children. His second marriage to actress Wendy Neuss lasted three years and ended in 2003.
