John Corbett and Bo Derek have tied the knot.

The former Sex and the City star revealed he married his longtime love over the 2020 holiday season during a virtual interview Tuesday on the CBS chat show The Talk.

Jerry, I cant believe that I forgot to tell you that around Christmastime, we got married. Bo and I got married! Corbett gushed to co-host Jerry OConnell.

The actor flashed his wedding ring for the camera and continued, Were pretty private people. We didnt make an announcement. All our friends and family knew but this is the first time either one of us has said anything publicly about it because really we havent had an opportunity. So, youre my buddy and now I guess Im telling all of America, or the world.

After 20 years we decided to get married, added Corbett. We didnt want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back at and hated. We thought, Well, lets get one nice thing out of it.

A rep for Derek confirmed to TODAY that the couple tied the knot late last year in a private ceremony.

Corbett, 60, and Derek, 64, met in 2002 when Hollywood agent Norby Walters set them up for a date at his annual Oscars party.

I said, Im not dating anyone, and he said, Ill get you a date, Corbett! And he set me up with Bo, Corbett revealed when he and Derek visited TODAY in July 2015.

The actor recalled that he found the idea of a night out with the 10 star very intimidating.

Derek, who hadnt dated anyone in five years, said she was instantly attracted to Corbett.

I kept saying to my friends, Ill wait (to date) until all the sparks and all that get going, she recalled. And it finally happened.

The couples marriage is the first for Corbett. Derek was previously married to filmmaker John Derek from 1976 until his death in 1998.
