Jim Parsons is now married! The Big Bang Theory actor recently tied the knot with his boyfriend of 14 years, Todd Spiewak, in the Rainbow Room in New York. While Parsons’ relationship with his graphic designer boyfriend has been going on for a pretty long time, the actor hadn’t come out and spoken about it until 2012 when he revealed that he was “gay and in a 10-year relationship.”
In November last year, the two marked their 14-year anniversary where Jim Parsons stated in an Instagram post, “I met this guy (the one with the mic) 14 years ago today and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, no contest.” The two have been going on strong for way too long and their day has finally come.
