Ricki Lake Wedding: Talk Show Host Elopes In Southern California

Ricki Lake may be used to being the spotlight, but the 43-year-old talk show host opted for a wedding far from the public eye when she tied the knot on Sunday.

People magazine reports that Lake eloped on April 8 with Christian Evans in a secret ceremony in Southern California.

No other details have been released yet, but it's no surprise that Lake and Evans decided on an intimate, private affair instead of a large and lavish one.

In January, Lake told Rosie O'Donnell that her wedding would be small. "I had this flash of me in my wedding dress shaking hands and meeting people for the first time," she said on "The Rosie Show." "We both don't want to do that. We want to do something that's just for us."

The new bride is ecstatic: "It was a beautiful moment I will never forget," she told People. "I wasn't anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited."

The couple first announced their engagement via Twitter in August. The former "Dancing With The Stars" contestant had previously said that she was in no rush to walk down the aisle.
