That Was Fast! 14 Months After Divorce, Mark-Paul Gosselaar Marries Again
Don't Shed Any Tears For His Ex, She's Already Remarried, Too!
Most newly single men look forward to enjoying their bachelorhood. Not Franklin & Bash star Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Just over a year after his split from first wife Lisa Ann Russell was finalized in May 2011, Gosselaar and his new ladylove, ad exec Catriona McGinn, said their "I Do's" this past Saturday at a winery in northern California.
But don't worry about how Russell, who was wed to Gosselaar for 14 years and has two children with the former Saved by the Bell leading man, is coping. She, too, rebounded quickly, marrying Survivor host Jeff Probst only seven months later!
While he hasn't addressed the speedy timing of their second marriages, Gosselaar has spoken out on how unusually friendly his and Russell's split had been.
"The truth is if two people are unhappy in an environment together and the kids are a part of that environment, you need to make a change," Gosselaar told Eonline. "But I have nothing but nice things to say about my ex-wife and the years that we spent together and I think it's very important that the kids are around us both equally."
For Hollywood, notorious for its knock-down, drag-out, nasty splits (see: Kardashian, Kim and Humphries, Kris), that certainly is refreshing.
And if both Gosselaar and Russell, their kids and their new spouses are happy, we only have one thing to say: Congrats all around!
