This time, Willard Scott is the one celebrating the big and important milestone!

The former weatherman and Today contributor married his longtime girlfriend Paris Keena on Tuesday in Fort Myers, Fla.

"By the way we also have some great news this morning, another surprise wedding in our family," Matt Lauer revealed on Wednesday morning's broadcast. "Savannah [Guthrie] is not the only one who recently got married. Yesterday, Willard Scott and his longtime partner Paris Keena tied the knot."

The couple have been together for about 11 years, Lauer added.

Per Today, the 80-year-old TV personality and Keena first met in 1977. At the time, she worked for NBC's Washington affiliate, WRC. The duo stayed in touch through the years, before they reconnected for good. Scott has been with Today for more than thirty years.

When asked about honeymoon plans, Keena cutely replied, "Our whole life has been a honeymoon."

Congrats to the newlyweds!
