Yes, Elvis was there.
Stranger Things star David Harbour married pop star Lily Allen in a Las Vegas ceremony, just one day after obtaining a marriage license.
Gossip hounds had noticed a ring on Allen’s finger, but the couple never announced their engagement. We were worried that the pair might have split after Allen posted solo vacation selfies, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Instead, they jetted off to Vegas for a surprise wedding officiated by an Elvis impersonator. Harbour (45) and Allen (35) were joined by her young children. The bride wore a vintage Dior mini-dress and a white veil pinned to her beehive hairdo. Afterwards, they celebrate with In-N-Out burgers.
Here’s how Harbour described it in his own words:
In a wedding officiated by the king himself, the people’s princess wed her devoted, low born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic.
Refreshments were served at a small reception following
It takes a brave woman to scarf down a juicy cheeseburger while wearing vintage couture, but Lily Allen has always been bold.
Lily Allen was previously married to Sam Cooper, a builder. They had two daughters–Ethel Mary and Marnie Rose. Allen has been open about her health struggles over the years, both mental and physical.
She also caused a scandal in 2018 when she admitted to paying for sex with female escorts during her marriage to Cooper. She also endured more than seven years of violent stalking by a deranged fan.
To say she’s been through a lot in 35 years in an understatement. She began dating David Harbour in 2019, and judging by their Instagram photos, the couple are blissfully in love. It’s particularly heartwarming to see Allen’s daughters climbing all over their 6’3″ stepdad.
Harbour and Allen are both artists living with bipolar disorder. They’ve each given interviews about how the mental illness impacts their life and work. “I think there’s always been a link between creative people and what society defines as mental illness,” Harbour told NPR in 2019. “[A]cting allowed me to channel all of this neurosis, this sensitivity, into a character.”
Allen recently announced her one-year sober anniversary, too. She’s back in the studio recording new music, and Harbour will soon be on our TV screens again in the latest season of Stranger Things.
