Actress and comedian Lily Tomlin married her girlfriend of 42 years, Jane Wagner, on New Year’s Eve.
Tomlin’s rep exclusively confirmed to marriage news with Us Weekly. They got hitched in a quiet ceremony in Los Angeles. The rep commented, “They are very happy.”
Liz Smith, a Chicago Tribune columnist, wrote of the event on Jan. 3, noting that the night was an “eventful” one as her “longtime friends, Lily Tomlin and her love, the writer Jane Wagner, got married on the eve of 2014.”
The marriage isn’t surprising as back in October E! News notes that Tomlin had mentioned they were planning a wedding. “We’re talking about it. I think December, I’m off. I have no obligations at the moment.”
Us notes that they first met when collaborating on the 74-year-old Tomlin’s Grammy Award-winning comedy album This Is a Recording. The couple would continue to work together on three films, Moment by Moment, The Incredible Shrinking Woman and The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.”
