Pamela Anderson is a married woman again!

The 53-year-old Baywatch alum wed her bodyguard, a bodybuilder and fellow Canadian, Dan Hayhurst, in an intimate ceremony on the grounds of her home on Vancouver Island, British Columbia on Christmas Eve, E! News confirmed on Wednesday, Jan. 27. The two have been together since at least last fall. 

"Pamela is over the moon and feels more at home than ever before," a source connected to the couple told E! News exclusively about her and her new husband's recent wedding. "This is really such a full circle moment and return to her roots. They are actually both natives to Vancouver Island. They are splitting their time between Malibu and her family home in Vancouver. Spending time during quarantine has been cathartic for them both."

This marks the fifth marriage and ninth wedding ceremony in 25 years for Pamela. The actress was previously married to four different men, including first ex-husband Tommy Lee, with whom she shares two sons, Brandon Thomas Lee, 24, and Dylan Jagger Lee, 23.

The source told E! News that "Brandon and Dylan couldn't be happier and support their mom no matter what." The insider also said that Pamela's relationship with her new husband is "really sweet," adding, "Her friends think Dan is the nicest man she's ever been with." 

At their wedding, Pamela wore a cream-colored, scrunched cap-sleeve gown with a cathedral-style veil and dark Hunter rain boots, as seen in photos posted by The Daily Mail, which first reported the wedding news. A local pastor performed the ceremony, while the couple recited traditional vows, it reported. Qiyupelenexw from Snuneymuxw First Nation acted as a witness and sang the "Paddle Song," which signifies a new journey, and drums played throughout the ceremony, the outlet said.

"I have been moved by the warm reception to Jon and my union," Pamela said in a statement to E! News. "We would be very grateful for your support as we take some time apart to re-evaluate what we want from life and from one another. Life is a journey and love is a process. With that universal truth in mind, we have mutually decided to put off the formalization of our marriage certificate and put our faith in the process."

In September 2020, Pamela tweeted a link to an article about her new romance with her bodyguard. She wrote, "Pamela Anderson was never legally married to Jon Peters (life long family friend) no hard feelings - no Marraige [sic], no Divorce... just a bizarre theatrical lunch - Pamela has a good sense of humor about it."
