John Corbett has revealed that he and long-time partner Bo Derek married at the end of 2020, after two decades as a couple.
Corbett, an actor and country musician best known for his roles in Sex and the City and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, made the announcement during an appearance on US chat show The Talk.
“Jerry I can’t believe that I forgot to tell you that around Christmastime we got married. Bo and I got married!” the Sex and the City alum revealed.
He continued, “We’re pretty private people, we didn’t make an announcement, all our friends and family knew but this is the first time either one of us has said anything publicly about it because really we haven’t had an opportunity. So, you’re my buddy and now I guess I’m telling all of America, or the world.”
“After 20 years we decided to get married, we didn’t want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back at and hated. We thought, ‘Well, let’s get one nice thing out of it,'” Corbett concluded.
Derek’s rep also confirmed the news to PEOPLE, explaining that “Bo and John were married in a private ceremony late last year.”
