Patrick Stewart - "Yes, Married." Sir Patrick Stewart Ties The Knot With Sir Ian McKellan As The Minister

In news that will hopefully make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, Sir Patrick Stewart has just gotten married – in a ball pit, if the picture he tweeted along with the brief announcement is anything to go by.

Ok, in all seriousness, the wedding probably wasn’t held inside a ball pit, but the actor more than made up for it, by having none other than Sire Ian McKellen officiate, according to the BBC. Sir Patrick and jazz singer Sunny Ozell have been together for five years, ever since they met, while Stewart was playing Macbeth in Brooklyn, New York. Sir Ian dropped the news of his special part in his longtime friend’s wedding, during an interview with Jonathan Ross back in March.

McKellen married Sir Pat Stew (not in that way.)

"I'm going to marry Patrick," he told the UK chat show host, before pausing and rephrasing his statement.

"How else do you put that? I am going to officiate at his wedding."

McKellen also explained that the wedding was to take place in Massachusetts, where he could apply for a one-day marriage designation, which would give him the legal right to preside over the ceremony. While McKellen may have had official minister status, there was little that could be deemed official about his ministering style. After the wedding, he posted a photo on Facebook in which he was holding a "Doctor of Divinity" certificate and a black t-shirt emblazoned with the word "Minister".

The happy couple have been together for five years.

The two respected actors are long-standing friends, playing opposite each other in the X-Men films, as well as stage productions of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot and Harold Pinter's No Man's Land. As for the couple, this is Sir Patrick’s third marriage. Ozell, 35, is originally from Reno, Nevada, and sang with Latin band Chupacabra before launching a solo career. The couple, both of whom maintain an active social media presence, have most recently been seen together in a rather hilarious youtube video posted by Ozell and of course, on Sir Patrick’s endlessly entertaining Twitter.
