TV personality Leeza Gibbons has been well known for her appearances on talk shows, her hosting on Entertainment Tonight, and her occasional acting parts. But now she has something new to be happy about: she just tied the knot.
Gibbons married her boyfriend of two years, Steven Fenton, the former president of the Beverly Hills Board of Education. The two met on a blind date and became engaged last summer.
The ceremony details are gorgeous. They wed on the roof of the Montage Hotel, where they had their first date. There was a large fire and a collection of white roses that they took from their own home.
Her three children, ages 13 (Nathan), 19 (Troy) and 21 (Lexi) were not only in attendance, but a big part of the marrying themselves. The two eldest officiated after becoming ordained ministers for the task, and the youngest gave them the rings.

A lot of people have been bitchy about this story, as this is not only her fourth husband, but he is more than 14 years her junior. She has famously said that she has “embraced her inner cougar”, which is a pretty cringe-worthy quote.
But I think they seem so sweet together, and the wedding looked gorgeous. Her kids seem genuinely thrilled for her, and this adorable quote from her new hubby just seals the cuteness for me:
“Leeza is the most kind person I have ever known. It’s that compassion that I see every day in her children. My life is now complete.”
