Pop the champagne! Heathers star Christian Slater took his second trip down the aisle on Monday, marrying his longtime girlfriend Brittany Lopez.
The spur of the moment nuptials took place on Monday at a Coral Gables, Florida courthouse — where they had only planned get their marriage license! His representative confirmed the happy news to People.
The 44-year-old actor and his 26-year-old love shared a sweet photo that captures their wedding liplock. The groom wore a leather jacket and sported facial stubble, while the bride wore a black sweater and white shirt.
Christian and Brittany first met in 2009 at a Miami resort. He originally thought she was both engaged and a lesbian!
"This girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady," Christian said. "I was sitting in my usual spot, eating my oatmeal that morning … and this spot was famous for people proposing to each other… and next thing I know she gets down on one knee and proposes to this older lady… I thought I had just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement, so I was coming over to say congratulations, but it turns out it was her aunt and she was just trying to help her aunt capture the beauty and the romance of the moment. She was making a joke, and I witnessed it, and it intrigued me, and the next thing I know we were hanging out in the Everglades.”
Awww… one minute you’re eating oatmeal and the next minute you’re meeting the love of your life!
Christian has been married once before; He tied the knot with actress Ryan Haddon in 2000, and they finalized their divorce in 2006. They have two children together, daughter Eliana and son Jaden.
