Congratulations to the happy comedian couple, Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti, on their marriage! It may come as a shock to many of their fans who have been following their engagement since November of last year when Peretti posted a short-but-sweet tweet saying, “My fiancé (lololol) Jordan Peele proposed to me last night during the family talent show lolol.” Apparently the comedians — one a Key & Peele alum, the other a Brooklyn Nine-Nine star — wanted a BIT more privacy than their celeb status would allow, so instead of throwing an extravagant, Kardashian-style wedding they eloped!
Peele revealed his nuptials to the world during a taping of Late Night With Seth Meyers, although what he didn’t reveal were the nitty-gritty details that we all unabashedly crave. #SadEmoji. Starring as a guest on the show, along with his Key and Peele co-star Keegan-Michael Key, the two buds were quizzed with questions about each other’s lives.
“I am married to actress Chelsea Peretti,” Peele told the audience, before his buddy joked, “I am not married to actress Chelsea Peretti, we are just dating.”
But according to Peretti’s Instagram account, Key’s little joke couldn’t be farther from the truth. The actress, known as chelsanity on Insta, posted an adorable photo (below) of her pup — in a tiny Hawaiian shirt for kicks — sitting next to a lush bouquet and a wedding band shortly after the Late Night With Seth Meyers show aired. She finished it with the caption, “Eloped a bit ago. Our only witness was this lil guy.”
To be fair, we’d much rather have our pooch by our side than a whole bunch of paparazzi snapping pictures in our face, too.
Here’s to a life full of laughs for the happy newlywed couple (and their little pup!).
