As reported earlier this month, the “Copacabana” singer married his longtime manager Garry Kief last year. Somers, 68, was cautious to not spill too many details, but she did reveal how long the two have been together.

“They’re married and they’re happy and I was there when it was announced. They’ve been together for 30 years,” the Three’s Company actress told host Andy Cohen. “I think it’s sweet. It’s freeing. He’s one of the most incredible people and a true music genius.”

Manilow, 71, said “I do” at his Palm Springs home, but has yet to publicly speak about the nuptials or his sexuality. In 2012, he told The Telegraph that he was single.

“He’s extremely private, extremely. I think it was very difficult, and it’s very difficult for me to talk about, so I want to do it with complete respect and love,” Somers continued. “He’s an awesome person, they’re both awesome people, they’re my dearest friends.”
