'Glee' Actor Cheyenne Jackson Weds Partner Of 11 Years
Glee star Cheyenne Jackson has wed his longtime partner in New York.
The former Broadway performer has been dating physicist Monte Lapka for over a decade and the gay couple exchanged vows in the posh holiday retreat the Hamptons on Saturday, just weeks after same-sex marriage came into force in the state.
The actor previously revealed he and Lapka had registered as domestic partners and had taken part in a special commitment ceremony last summer, but this weekend's union makes their marriage "official."
Revealing the news in a Twitter.com post to fans, he writes, "It's official, after 11 years together... Married the best man I've ever known."
Jackson also showed off a touching photo of the newlyweds on a beach.
The bill was passed by politicians in June, making New York only the sixth state to legally recognize same-sex marriages.
