Tony Award nominee Patrick Stewart was married Sept. 8 with the assistance of his No Man's Land/Waiting for Godot and "X-Men" co-star Ian McKellen, who officiated the ceremony.

On Sept. 8, Stewart, who will star as Hirst in No Man's Land and Vladimir in Waiting for Godot in the upcoming Broadway productions — which run in repertory beginning Oct. 26 at the Cort Theatre — married Brooklyn songwriter Sunny Ozell, whom he met in 2008 while performing Macbeth at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Following the ceremony, Stewart tweeted, "Yes, married," alongside a picture of him and his wife in a ball pit. McKellen shared an image on his Facebook page holding his doctor of divinity certificate and a t-shirt that reads, "Minister." His caption reads, "I did my part!" and includes a link to Stewart's aforementioned tweet.
