Christian Slater got married this week to his girlfriend of three years, Brittany Lopez. Slater’s rep says the 44-year-old actor and Lopez walked down the aisle so to speak at the local courthouse in Coral Gables, Fla.
This is the second marriage for Slater who was previously married to Ryan Haddon from 2000-2005. The couple share two children, a son, Jaden Christopher, and a daughter, Eliana.
Slater had announced his engagement to Lopez back in February 2013 during an appearance on NBC’s Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
“Congratulations, you’re engaged!” Jimmy Fallon said to Slater. The actor replied, “Yeah, that’s true,” and gave the audience the thumbs-up.
The lovebirds met at Florida’s Little Palm Island. Slater recalled, “This girl came walking along with another lady, a slightly older lady, and I was sitting in my usual spot eating my oatmeal that morning.
“So I’m a filthy old man eating my oatmeal and she comes walking along. This spot, I guess, was famous for people proposing to each other, actually. It was very, very nice. So she’s there with this old lady and, next thing I know, she gets down on one knee and proposes to this older lady.
“I’d seen a lot of crazy stuff down in the Florida Keys! I of course was very intrigued and I went over and sat down in my other usual spot. I thought I’d just witnessed a nice lesbian engagement so I was coming over to say congratulations.”
But Slater was pleasantly surprised. “It turns out it was her aunt and she was just trying to help her capture the beauty of the park…The next thing I knew we were hanging out in the Everglades.”
