Forming what will be one of the funnier marriages ever, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher finally wed, according to the Australian magazine Women's Day.
The notoriously private couple invited just a few close relatives to witness them become husband and wife in a traditional Jewish ceremony last Monday.
“We did it – we’re married!” bubbled an ecstatic Isla in an email to friends around the world the following day. “It was the absolute best day of my life."
The Australian actress and the British comedian have been engaged in 2004, but despite having a daughter, Olive, in 2007, put off marriage a long time.
This led to speculation they were reluctant to make their relationship official, but friends say they were simply waiting for the right time to get hitched.
BRIDE OF BORAT: Isla Fisher is now Mrs. Sacha Baron Cohen!
“They were never bothered by the constant public pressure to marry and all along were just considering the venue – Australia or the US,” a friend says.
As for the nuptials' venue, “Paris was the late starter but was the best option at short notice for their families, and it won them over with romance.”
In spite of Sacha’s outrageous alter egos Ali G, Bruno and Borat, the Cohen is said to be very shy in real life, thus the pair opted for a private celebration.
Friends claim the newlyweds’ differences are what makes them a successful couple. To use one of the simplest, yet most profound Borat quotes: NICE!
