Patrick Stewart has just married his girlfriend of 4 years, Sunny Ozell.
The 73-year-old, who starred as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, posted a bizarre picture of him and his new wife in a colourful ball pit with the caption: “Yes, married.”
And it appears that his long-time friend and X-Men co-star Sir Ian McKellen officiated the ceremony.
Sir Ian, who played Gandalf in the Lord Of The Rings, posted a photo on his official Facebook page showing him holding up a black T-shirt with “Minister” written on it.
In an interview with Jonathan Ross earlier this year, Sir Ian announced: “I am going to marry Patrick. Well, no, how else do you put that? I am going to officiate at his wedding.”
Asked if he was legally qualified to preside over the couple’s nuptials, he said: ”I don’t know. But in Massachusetts, or in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married.”
He added: ”I’ve done it once before, with two guys having a civil partnership. I was crying my eyes out.”
Sir Patrick and jazz singer Ozell, 35, met while he was performing Macbeth in New York and they have been together for five years.
It is his third marriage and he has two children.
