Once isn’t Enough — Gossip Girl Star Gets Married Second Time… This Year!
NGL, the Gossip Girl cast members found themselves in some pretty high-profile relationships. Most notably, the CW television drama’s leading lady, Blake Lively, is married to Ryan Reynolds; the TV series’ second leading lady, Leighton Meester, clocks in at #2 with her marriage to Adam Brody; then, taking the top spot for the show’s male hotties is Penn Badgley, who wed Domino Kirke earlier this year.
But once wasn’t enough for all of the aforementioned GG talents — the 30-year-old heartthrob, who portrayed Dan Humphrey throughout the program’s six-season run, tied the knot with his wife, 34-year-old Domino… for the second time!
Girls actress Jemima Kirke‘s big sister posted the following Instagram picture over the weekend, along with the caption, “”You only get married twice, once” ??I love you @pennbadgley.”
Unlike the February 2017 occasion, this event was far less private; the guest list included Mariska Hargitay, Debra Messing, Zac Posen, and Heidi Klum.
Before Penn & Domino first linked up, Penn famously dated his Gossip Girl co-star, Blake Lively, for three years; after that relationship fizzled, he hooked up with Zoe Kravitz, on and off, for two years; he began dating Domino in 2014, before they walked down the aisle four months ago.
7 couples that got married on a TV show after their real-life breakup, including Blake & Penn:
Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder
Nian's real-life relationship will forever resonate with fans of The Vampire Diaries, despite the fact that it ended four years ago. That's why when their characters ended up together on the series finale of the show, fanatics were overjoyed.
According to TVD's executive producer, Kevin Williamson, "There was a moment in the show where [Damon] proposed and [Elena] responded after medical school. And the whole point of that moment was just to show that she became a doctor. And so we thought, 'Oh, we'll just put her in scrubs and we can cut that piece.'"
"I think they got married right after Elena's studies," creator Julie Plec said separately, "but they did not wait so long before they had children! It was Jeremy who brought his older sister to the altar at their wedding and that he probably made a finger of honor to Damon at the same time! *laughs*"
Nevertheless, the two characters do end up spending the rest of their (human!) lives together, even though Nina and Ian don't plan to do so IRL.
