The actor Alfonso Ribeiro has married Angela Unkrich, People magazine have confirmed. On Saturday (October 13, 2012), Alfonso, who is best known for playing Carlton Banks in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air got married for the second time. He has been engaged to Angela since July this year.
On Sunday, the 41 year-old posted a message to his 17,000 Twitter followers, to say “Last night I got married to the most incredible woman in the world @angiesue224.” Unkrich, 31, posted her own tweet, to say “1st morning waking up as Mrs. Ribeiro = AMAZING!!! So happy and blessed!” Alfonso also took a few moments to correct some careless news tweeters, who had posted faulty info about the wedding. The Celebrity Café posted “'Dancing with the Stars' contestant Alfonso Ribeiro ties the knot…” to which he replied, somewhat fastidiously, “I was never on DWTS.” A few hours later, the excitement of the wedding had clearly passed, as he was busy tweeting his feelings on the Yankees’ game, instead.
Ribeiro was born in the Bronx and launched his career when he starred in a Pepsi commercial alongside Michael Jackson in the 1980s. Then, he went on to star in Silver Spoons between 1984 to 1987. Widespread attention came when he landed the role of Carlton Banks in Fresh Prince, starring alongside Will Smith. He was previously married to Robin Stapler, with whom he had a child, nine year-old Sienna.
