He's hitched! Danny Pintauro married boyfriend Wil Tabares in Dana Point, Calif., on Thursday, April 3, he tells Us Weekly exclusively. The Who's the Boss alum tied the knot in an intimate beach ceremony.
"Everything went off without a hitch," Pintauro, 38, tells Us. "The wedding was terrific and everyone was so happy to be there. We had fun!" He adds: "We went into it with no stress or worries or cares, except to have a good time." The couple wore cream-colored suits for their special day, with a matching lavender flower in place of a pocket square.
Us exclusively confirmed back in April 2013 that the couple got engaged during a Palm Springs getaway. Tabares, an Entertainer and Cosmopolitan casino employee, popped the question with a homemade video.
"He made a video, and in the video held up the box [with the ring]," Pintauro told Us at the time. "I looked up and he had it in his hand!"
The couple, who reside in Las Vegas, celebrated their wedding reception on a hotel balcony overlooking the beach. The decor included Christmas lights, seashells, linens, and a fire pit.
"I never thought I would ever get married," Tabares tells Us. "I knew I would never marry a woman, and never thought I'd see the day that same-sex marriage would be legal, so it's definitely a life-long dream come true."
"The beautiful reality is starting to set in," he adds. "This is one small step for man, one giant step for equality." (At the time of their engagement, Nevada did not yet allow same-sex marriage. Last February, the ban was overturned and same-sex marriage became legal. Pintauro came out as gay in 1997.)
Pintauro is best-known for playing Jonathan Bower in the ABC sitcom Who's the Boss from 1984 to 1992 with Tony Danza, Judith Light, and Alyssa Milano. His wedding to Pintauro aired live via Livestream Thursday, and will replay again from 6:30-7:30 p.m. PST tonight.
