Ricki Lake Got Married! ’90s Talk Show Maven Elopes with Christian Evans

Go Ricki!

The Original Tracy Turnblad has gone and gotten hitched.

Ricki Lake, who gave Oprah a run for her talk show tiara with her self-titled ’90s gabfest, eloped over the weekend. The 43-year-old tied the knot with fiance Christian Evans, 40, in a clandestine ceremony in Southern California on Sunday.

The actress-turned-professional talker confirmed the wedding news on her Twitter feed Tuesday, writing:

“It’s official, and I am so happy!”

Ricki attached a photo of herself in her wedding gown with a reference to Barbra Streisand’s Funny Girl theme, “Sadie, Sadie.”

“Yup. This is me…. Sadie Sadie married lady,” she wrote.

Lake gushed about her top secret nups in a chat with People magazine:

“It was a beautiful moment I will never forget. I wasn’t anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited.”

Ricki split from first husband Rob Sussman in 2003. They are the parents of two sons, Milo, 15 and 10-year-old Owen.
