Howard Stern ties the knot


It's happened—someone has finally made an honest man of Howard Stern.

After a somewhat lengthy engagement, the Sirius Satellite shock jock has taken the marital plunge with longtime girlfriend Beth Ostrosky, tying the knot in a private event at New York City's famed Le Cirque restaurant earlier tonight.

The duo swapped vows in front of family and friends, both famous and otherwise, with a who's who of Manhattan's A-list in attendance.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos topped the guest list, with Consuelos, who became an ordained minister over the summer, performing the ceremony.

Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Adam Carolla, Barbara Walters, Billy Joel and wife Katie Lee, Joan Rivers, Stern's radio cohosts Robin Quivers and Artie Lang, Chevy Chase, Donald and Melania Trump and John Stamos were reportedly among the event's 180 esteemed wedding guests.

As it is, Consuelos wasn't the only guest pulling double duty: Joel sang a song and Chase delivered a speech following the ceremony.

Ostrosky donned a wedding dress by Hollywood design fave Marquesa for her big day, which, as it happens, has been something of a long time coming.

The 54-year-old radio personality popped the question to the 36-year-old model-actress back on Valentine's Day 2007. Since—and even before—then, there have been several false starts, including when Stern himself announced on his radio show back in 2006 that he and Ostrosky had already tied the knot, only to say later that it was a prank.

On Aug. 23, a family celebration at the couple's Hampton's home led some press to assume that the duo had quietly taken their trip down the aisle, though Ostrosky later revealed it was simply a celebration of their impending nuptials.

As it is, it's the first marriage for Ostrosky and the second for Stern, who split from his first wife Alison back in 2000. For years after, he famously vowed he would never marry again, a flip-flopped promise he explained away during a trip to the Late Show With David Letterman earlier this year.

"I'm a hypocritical liar, as you know," he said. "Things change, love happens, love blossoms."
