Leeza Gibbons and Steven Fenten got married Wednesday at midnight on the roof of the Beverly Hills hotel where they had their first date in 2008.

‘Now, three years later, I am finally able to embrace my inner cougar!,’ Gibbons, 54, told People magazine. Fenton is 41.


The TV personality’s three children were the only guests at the candlelight ceremony in front of a roaring fire, according to the mag. Lexi, 21, and Troy, 19, became ordained ministers so they could preside over the nuptials at the Montage, while youngest sibling Nathan, 13, handled the exchange of rings.

‘My life is now complete,’ Fenten said, first noting that his bride is the kindest person he’s ever known.

Gibbons, who previously hosted ‘Entertainment Tonight’ and ‘Extra,’ can be seen on ‘My Generation’ on PBS. She and Fenton, a member and former president of the Beverly Hills Board of Education who also has a career-management company, got engaged last June.

It’s the fourth marriage for Gibbons, who split from Stephen Meadows in 2005 after 14 years together.
