Ricki's a Mrs. again!
Eight months after announcing her engagement to Christian Evans, Ricki Lake has eloped, a source confirms to Us Weekly. "They were planning on doing it this way and didn't want a big spectacle," the source explains. "Ricki is so happy! She really found love again."
She dropped a not-so-subtle hint on Twitter Tuesday with a fuzzy but stunning shot of herself, clad in a lacy wedding gown and holding a bouquet, looking out a window from a cozy-looking room.
"Yup, this is me," the actress and talk show host, 43, wrote above the photo. "Sadie Sadie married lady. :) :) Love is in the air. Xo"
After about a year of dating, Lake and beau Evans got engaged in August 2011 during a vacation in Spain. It's the second marriage for Lake, who divorced Rob Sussman in 2003 after nine years together; she and Sussman share sons Milo, 15, and Owen, 10.
Lake herself was shocked to find herself engaged again.
"Following the end of my first marriage, I was certain that romantic love would not find me again," the Dancing with the Stars runner-up admitted on her iVillage blog last year.
"I would always tell my inner circle. 'I will never marry again. Even if I meet Mr. Right, there is no need to make anything 'official.'"
She gushed of Evans: "On my 42nd birthday, true love walked into my life, and I am not letting it out."
She called her man "The kindest, most caring spirit. . . Most important, he loves my kids and my kids love him. There is nothing better than seeing all of my guys together."
