“We just decided at the last minute, ‘Let’s make this wedding, surprise my parents.’ “
Congratulations on Will Forte!
The Saturday Night Live alum has just revealed that he secretly married his fiancee Olivia Modling over the summer.
The couple, who welcomed their first child in February, were in New Mexico while Will worked on Mac Gruber when they realized that everyone they could have wanted at their wedding was there.
“We got engaged just before the first COVID lockdown. And so when we were just starting to talk to planners, people had to close their weddings. At the time, we said, “We are in no rush. We can find out later, ”Will told People.
He continued, “So COVID passes and we are in quarantine for a long time. And then the baby is this wonderful news. We find out that we are going to have a child. And so we weren’t in a rush, but every time for a while, we thought, “Let’s do it. “
And that’s exactly what they did last July, even though they didn’t quite tell all of their guests that they were about to attend a wedding!
“We realized, ‘Oh, everyone we want to be here will be here. Most of them, because a lot of my closest friends work on Mac Gruber with me. They were already in Albuquerque, so we decided at the last minute, “Let’s do this wedding, surprise my parents,” said Will.
He added: “They didn’t even know until they got to the parking lot. And we just had this really fun and delicious wedding, quite small, in the back of [MacGruber co-creator] Jorma Taccone’s house. “
Will says it was all a “lovely day” and the short delay to the wedding made it a lot less stressful.
As for married life, Will admitted that it doesn’t seem that different, but he loves that he can call Olivia his wife.
“I feel very happy and very lucky these days,” concluded Will.
