The former star of TV's Suddenly Susan tied the knot with her off-screen costar, Spin City writer-producer Chris Henchy, last Wednesday on Santa Catalina Island off the coast of Los Angeles, her publicist confirmed Tuesday.
The couple, who have been living together for the past few months after getting engaged in Mexico last July, exchanged vows in a small private ceremony attended by close family and friends, according to Entertainment Tonight, which reports the couple plan a larger affair "in the near future." No other details were immediately available.
This is the second matrimonial go-round for the 35-year-old actress. She previously wed tennis star Andre Agassi in 1997, but the pair divorced just two years later. It's the first marriage for Henchy, 38.
"He is rock solid and so incredibly aware," Shields said of her beau earlier this year in London's Daily Mirror. "He just revels in me, but doesn't hold me on such a pedestal that I'm too far away from him."
The newly minted marrieds reportedly hope to start a family soon.
The nuptials come after an otherwise rocky stretch for the former Calvin Klein poser. Last September, police arrested an alleged stalker who had been terrorizing the actress for several years. That was on top of her very public split with Agassi, which came around the same time as the demise of her sitcom and the suicide of her Suddenly Susan costar David Strickland. Shields also has had to cope with her father's struggle with cancer, as well as her long-estranged relationship with her mom, Teri, a recovering alcoholic. (Her parents divorced when the actress was just five.)
Shields found fame at age 13 starring in the whorehouse drama, Pretty Baby. She was frolicking in fig leaves in The Blue Lagoon two years later. But she made her most indelible mark on pop culture at 16, when she announced to the world that nothing came between her and her Calvins.
We're assuming Henchy now has a shot.
