Sir Patrick Stewart is a married man, once again.
The “X-Men” star tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Sunny Ozell, confirming the news on Twitter over the weekend.
“Yes, married,” he Tweeted on Sunday morning, posting a photo of himself and his new wife in a room of colored balls that came up to the pair’s necks.
Sir Ian McKellen, Patrick’s longtime “X-Men” adversary (and recent stage partner in Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land,” which just wrapped at the Berkeley Rep in Berkeley, Calif.), officiated the ceremony.
Linking to Patrick’s wedding news Tweet, Ian posted a photo of himself on his Facebook page. In the pic, Ian is wearing a shirt that reads, “Minister.” He is also holding a “Doctor of Divinity” certificate in the photo, which he captioned, “I did my part.”
This is Patrick’s third marriage.
Patrick and Ian will both be seen in “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which opens May 23, 2014.
