LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson had quite a surprise for his audience Monday night! The talk show host announced he got married during his holiday break. The 46-year-old funnyman married his longtime girlfriend Megan Wallace Cunningham, an art dealer.
“The wedding took place in Vermont, where they have legalized gay civil unions – and I married a woman,” Craig said with a laugh, while showing his wedding ring, “It’s not just bling.”
“But,” he said, continuing the comedy, “I am European, so I was both the groom and the maid of honor.” The Scotsman, who wore a kilt during the ceremony, said he is hoping to find a celeb combo name like “Brangelina,” suggesting “Cragan” as a possibility.
And now that he’s in the midst of wedded bliss, he said he has to follow new rules when it comes to his job.
“People are telling me I can’t flirt with guests anymore,” Craig joked — unless a certain special guest stops by his CBS talk show. “If we ever get George Clooney on this stage, all bets are off,” he added.
This marks Craig’s third marriage. He has a 7-year-old son, Milo, from second marriage.
