Add comedian and “Sex And The City” actor Mario Cantone to the list of gay celebs who have recently tied the knot thanks to New York state legalizing same-sex marriage.
Mario Cantone is officially a married man.
During an appearance on “The View” Friday, the “Sex and the City” actor announced that he and partner Jerry Dixon recently tied the knot after 20 years together.
The comedian and the musical theater director’s union was made legal because of New York’s historic legalization of same-sex marriage that occurred in July.
“I got married for the same reasons you did,” Cantone, 51, said to co-host Joy Behar, who also recently said ‘I do.’ “We’re older now. We’ve been together 20 years. After 20 years you’re like, ‘Thanks for the anti-climactic honeymoon government!’ “
Pastor Jay Bakker, son of the late Tammy Faye Bakker Messner, presided over the ceremonious affair.
Cantone gushed about his special day with Dixon, saying, “It was beautiful, just my family there. I love him. He’s a good man.”
Dang, Mario bagged a nice looking brother. Who even knew he was down with the swirl for so long?
