Don Cheadle and his girlfriend Bridgid Coulter got married during the pandemic

The star appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, where he informed visitor host Wanda Sykes that he and his long time sweetheart, Bridgid Coulter, are now wed.

Sykes stated that when Cheadle informed her personally over text in 2015, she was surprised. “You texted me at the top of the year, I guess, and you told me that you just got married,” she stated. “And I was like, ‘Oh damn, the pandemic got to Don and Bridgid.'”

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

Cheadle responded, “Yeah, I mean, that’s understandable given that we’ve been together 28 years before we got married. I hold you blameless.”

The 2 have actually been together given that 1992 and share 2 children, Ayana and Imani together.
