Australian actress Poppy Montgomery revealed on April 4 that she’s been keeping a secret for months.
While Montgomery made a guest appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael on Friday, she made the announcement that she eloped with her then boyfriend Shawn Sanford.
“On Chinese New Year, I ran away with all of my children and got married at Disneyland,” the actress revealed, according to E! News.
Montgomery and her now husband Shawn Sanford, gave birth to their daughter Violet Grace in April 2013. Montgomery is also has a 6-year-old son named Jackson with her ex-boyfriend Adam Kaufman while Sanford has another daughter, from a previous relationship, according to Us Weekly.
Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse went dressed to impress in appropriate wedding attire, while Montgomery stated that she was sporting a pair of jeans as he said her nuptials. However, it didn’t seem that too many people noticed.
“The children were so in awe of Mickey and Minnie that they didn’t really pay attention to the wedding,” Montgomery said, “and then my stepdaughter said, ‘Why is Minnie dressed better than you?’”
The actress also laughed at the “horrified” reaction that her mother had.
“She was like, ‘How do you turn Disneyland into Vegas? You don’t run away to Disneyland and get married!’” she revealed.
