Don Cheadle secretly wedded partner Bridgid Coulter following 28 years together

Don Cheadle uncovered he and his long-term partner, Bridgid Coulter, secretly wedded during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “Hotel Rwanda” star, 56, spilled the beans on Wednesday to “Ellen DeGeneres Show” visitor host Wanda Sykes, who had been under the supposition the two were at that point wedded.

“You texted me at the top of the year, I guess, and you told me that you just got married,” Sykes, 57, said. “And I was like, ‘Oh, damn, the pandemic got to Don and Bridgid.’

“I was like, ‘What the hell happened, man?’” she joked. “I think I just texted something back, like, ‘Hey, if you’re happy, I’m happy for you.’ … I was like, ‘Cheadle went Hollywood.’”

Cheadle said he was confounded by Sykes’ reaction at first, however after the comedian clarified that she didn’t know he and Coulter, 52, weren’t at that point wedded, the “Iron Man” star said that he could comprehend why she reached that conclusion.

“Yeah, I mean, that’s understandable. … I hold you blameless,” he said.

The “Ocean’s Twelve” star didn’t say precisely when the long-lasting couple got married.

Cheadle and Coulter may have recently marry, however the two actors have been dating since 1992. They share two daughters, Ayana, 26, and Imani, 25, and recently showed up in “House of Lies,” “Rosewood” and “Black Monday” together.

Prior to becoming wildly successful in the film industry, Cheadle stood up comedy as a youngster in secondary school in the Denver region. He admitted on “Ellen” on Wednesday that he and a companion once set up a comedy routine and did extraordinary the initial two times they performed, yet when his parents came to see his set, he completely besieged.

“We were like, ‘Oh, this isn’t hard,’” Cheadle recalled of his first performance. “It didn’t go so well the next time. That was my last time doing stand-up.”
