You don’t hear much about Nathan Lane these days, and that’s part of the reason he’s so likable. He does his job and then he leaves the spotlight and lives a private personal life and that’s the end of it. What’s not to like? However, one part of his personal life has now become public, and it’s cause for celebration! Nathan and his partner of 18 years, Devlin Elliott, got married in New York City on Tuesday! Hurrah!
“Nathan and Devlin were married in a small ceremony in New York City this week. Everyone is extremely happy,” his rep tells PEOPLE.
Lane, 59, and Elliott, a producer and playwright, recently collaborated together on a children’s book called “Naughty Mabel” – a character that is based on their pet French bulldog.
Speaking about their 9-year-old pup to USA Today Elliott said recently: “She’s become our version of a child .. really all she wants is for you to pick her up and hold her like a baby.”
Lane added jokingly: “She’s a little neurotic and needy at times. It’s like living with a supermodel. And now that she’s become a celebrity, you know, it’s very difficult.”
Cute! A celebrity relationship lasting that long is pretty rare, so good for them for being so well-matched and making things work. They’re obviously very happy to be getting married after this long, so mazel tov to the happy couple and here’s to many more years to come!
