'Gossip Girl' Star Penn Bradgley Is Officially Married
Penn Badgley, whom we watched fall in love with Serena (Blake Lively), has found his own happy ending.
He went from "Lonely Boy to Playboy" to... not playing a character on "Gossip Girl" anymore and settling down with the incomparable Domino Kirke.
A source has confirmed to E! Badgley and Kirke were married in a courthouse on Monday in Brooklyn in front of a small group of their friends and family.
Kirke's sisters, Lola (of "Mozart in the Jungle") and Jemima Kirke (of "Girls"), were also there to celebrate.
Lola wrote on Instagram,
When someone gets married in a courthouse, it's really an open invitation to everyone but the beautiful bride to explore all that fashion has to offer. Here, I try a look simply called 'Pants,' as Cassius goes for 'That Dude from #incubus' and Jemima experiments with 'Off to Therapy!' Congratulations @dominokirke. We love you.
Badgley and Kirke have been dating since 2014.
Badgley is currently the lead singer for the Brooklyn-based band Mother (spelled MOTHXR for some cool, Brooklyn-hipster reason).
Kirke was also a singer, but she became a doula in 2009 and founded her own business Carriage House Doulas.
Making music and helping people give birth -- nothing could describe "white people in Brooklyn" more to me than those occupations.
Congratulations to the happy couple! I hope they have many years together in Brooklyn where they brew their own beer, harvest honey on their rooftop and invite their friends over to try different artisanal cheeses.
You two are living my life, and I would be jealous, but I'm trying not to be petty in the year of our Lord 2017.
