Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have a date to get married -- finally. The KISS singer and the former Playmate have been together for 28 years and have two children.
Invitations to the Oct. 1 wedding, sent out under the kids’ names, contain art by Nick, 22, and a nontraditional message from Sophie, 18: ‘After 28 years of loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot.’
‘Our mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our father’s life ... well, it doesn’t change that much.’
The invite isn’t all rock-star bravado, however. Teasing to the formation of ‘Team Tweed-Simmons,’ it continues: ‘We will be united as a family in title and spirit forever.’
Simmons is 62 and still touring with Paul Stanley and the current incarnation of KISS; Tweed is 54.
Simmons’ proposal in Belize was naturally captured by reality-TV cameras for A&E’s show ‘Gene Simmons: Family Jewels,’ which rolls its seventh season starting Oct. 4.
