We probably wouldn’t know anything about Deyn’s new marital status if an employee of the Crown City News, a local news website in California, hadn’t been standing in front of the couple as they queued to apply for a marriage license in East LA last Friday.
The reporter recognised Ribisi (still best known as Phoebe Buffay’s brother Frank from Friends) ‘passionately kissing’ a woman with an English accent in the queue. Then this happened:
When I realized who he was, I asked him if he was Giovanni Ribisi. He was very friendly, and said yes he was, and I told him I enjoyed his work. He thanked me and then asked me if I was getting married today, and I said no, we had waited too long and that it was finally time to get our child’s birth certificate. I asked him and the blond woman if they were getting married today and they quietly said yes, in a shy kind of way.
Deyn and Ribisi told Tami DeVine they had dated for ‘awhile’ before letting her snap a quick iPhone photo.
It’s a super-sweet pairing made all the more winsome by the fact that we never saw it coming. Congratulations to the lovebirds.
