David Hasselhoff and Hayley Roberts: Married!
It’s been a little over two years since David Hasselhoff became engaged to Hayley Roberts.
The famous actor is 66, and his fiancee is 38.
But she’s no longer his fiancee — she’s his wife. The two are now officially married!
Us Weekly reports that David Hasselhoff’s rep confirmed to them that he and Hayley have married.
The two tied the knot on Tuesday, July 31.
The long-awaited nuptials took place in the southern region of Puglia, Italy.
Italy is easily one of the most romantic places to have a destination wedding.
And we also have a few details about the ceremony itself.
According to The Blast, the 66-year-old actor and the 38-year-old model did not have one of those huge productions of a wedding, but they did invite guests.
The guest list was limited to close friends and, of course, family, giving the ceremony an intimate feeling.
Among the guests, of course, were David Hasselhoff’s daughters Taylor, 28, and Hayley, 25.
(No, that is not a typo — in case it has slipped your mind, his wife and daughter not only have the same first name, they spell it the same way)
We’re sure that they were overjoyed at getting to witness the loving union between these two longtime lovers.
This romance has been blazing for years — ever since David and Hayley (his wife, not his daughter) met in a random encounter at a hotel, way back in 2011.
Hayley asked him for his autograph. He agreed — and asked for her number in exchange.
That’s probably not the response that she expected from the Baywatch and Knight Rider alum, but they started dating.
Then, in 2016, on a romantic picnic lunch in Malibu, he proposed to her.
And she said yes.
David knew that marrying someone new — especially someone so much younger than he is — was going to be a little different for his daughters.
“I told my girls what I was going to do,” he actor shared after announcing the engagement in 2016. “And they were both really supportive.”
“It’s tough,” he said. “No one wants to see their parents split up.”
That is mostly true.
“But they love Hayley,” David said. “And they’re just happy for me.”
The age difference isn’t the hugest in the world. Unlike some celebrities, he’s not marrying a woman as young as or younger than his daughters.
We imagine that the only real awkward part of this relationship is that Hayley (his wife) and Hayley (his daughter) have the same name.
But plenty of families have multiple people with the same name, and they’ve had seven years to become accustomed to it.
Our heartfelt congratulations go out to the newly married couple.
We hope that their marriage brings them many years of blissful happiness.
