Congratulations are in order! Star Jones married her fiancé, Ricardo Lugo, on Sunday, March 25 — and we couldn't be happier for the couple.
The former host of The View and Ricardo wed on a Royal Carribean cruise over the weekend in the Bahamas. According to People, the couple had 150 guests there, including Holly Robinson Peete, Vanessa Bell-Calloway, Phaedra Parks, Bill Bellamy, Tina Knowles-Lawson, and Richard Lawson. Star wore a stunning Dennis Basso gown to the special event.
Before the nuptials, Star shared a photo of herself dressed in all white at her bachelorette party. "Yayyyyy. The #PrincessBride & @iampinkymichelle at our #BacheloretteParty at sea! #AnthemOfTheSeas #AnthemToLove," she wrote. The TV personality also celebrated her 56th birthday on the ship with a huge party thrown by Ricardo.
Prior to the eventful weekend, she shared a video of herself looking extremely happy on social media. "You know you’re really happy when your kid says at lunch, 'Stop smiling. You’re going to break your face,'" she shared before getting on the cruise. "This is the happiest weekend of my entire life."
The duo previously confirmed their engagement in October after keeping it hush-hush for months. "We’re engaged [and] not talking about it," she joked at the Angel Ball in NYC last fall. "He’s wonderful. I’m happy and that’s all anybody outside of my family needs to know." Star was previously married to Al Reynolds from 2004 until 2008.
In a recent exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, Star shared she knew Ricardo was "the one" from the "moment I met him. He is just that human being." She gushed, "I'm in a prayer on the beach. I've said I want somebody in my life who is kind and I can depend on, that I can exhale and I exhale with him all the time. I don't have to worry about a thing; he’s got my back."
