The Bachelor” and Miss America: Wedding Bells!

Sugar Daddy And Miss AmericaYou may not know who Mike Fleiss is by face, but you’ve more than likely heard of his work. The Bach­e­lor cre­ator has made a career out of help­ing young women find a hus­band, and he’s just solid­i­fied another solid match—his own!

On April 5, Mike Fleiss, 49, mar­ried his girl­friend, Miss Amer­ica 2012 Laura Kaep­peler, At 26 years old, she’s almost half his age. But despite the big age dif­fer­ence, the celebrity cou­ple has never looked more in love, accord­ing to Neil Lane, who designed Kaeppler’s plat­inum five-carat dia­mond ring. “It’s great to see two peo­ple that I really like so much in love. I wish them a life­time of hap­pi­ness,” said Lane.

The celebrity couple’s wed­ding, which was held at Mike Fleiss’ Mal­ibu home, was offi­ci­ated by none other than The Bach­e­lor host, Chris Har­ri­son. While this is Laura Kaeppeler’s first mar­riage, Fleiss was for­merly mar­ried to his high school girl­friend, Alexan­dra Vor­beck; their 24-year mar­riage ended in 2012.
