Another celebrity couple has made their May-December relationship official. Earlier this week, actor Christian Slater, 44, married his 26-year-old fiancée, Brittany Lopez, in an impromptu wedding ceremony held at a courthouse in Florida. The celebrity couple was originally planning to have a proper albeit small backyard ceremony, but when they went to pick up their marriage license, they decided to tie the knot right then and there.
The celebrity couple has been dating for over three years now and first met in the unlikeliest of ways. Slater revealed that he first approached Lopez because he thought she was proposing to her older female lover. “I thought I had just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement, so I was coming over to say congratulations,” Slater said in an interview. It turned out that, because they were in an area that was famous for marriage proposals, Lopez was just joking around with her aunt, trying to help her “capture the beauty and the romance of the moment.” They all had a good laugh and it eventually led to a date, which naturally evolved into a serious May-December relationship.
This is Slater’s second marriage—he divorced his first wife, actress Ryan Haddon, in 2007. At 26, Lopez will become the stepmother to his two kids, aged 14 and 12, from his first marriage.
