Saturday Night Live funnyman Kenan Thompson is engaged, several sources have reported.
Thompson, 33, rose to fame in the 90′s on Nickelodeon’s teen comedy lineup before landing a spot among the not ready for primetime players. The actor is set to wed model Christina Evangeline, and the rumors indicated the couple will be tying the knot on November 11th, 2011- or 11-11-11. (A date some consider lucky.) While that was speculative, it appears there was a grain of truth to the tale.
Over on Christina Evangeline’s Twitter, the model has addressed the rumors twice, saying:
@Creole_Bonita we are. just don’t know how people are finding out. especially the date. wow lol
…so it would appear the date has been tacitly confirmed by the model. Thompson recently returned to his Nick roots to appear on the iCarly and Victorious crossover iParty. Of his appearance, Thompson said:
“Well, I play myself – or a celebrity version of myself, I guess! One of the kids on the show wants to have a party and uses my ‘quote / unquote’ mansion to have a party in.
“I come home and I join the party too, then there’s a panda running around chasing me. It’s been following me to different places and apparently it found my new house and it’s giving me problems. There’s just wackiness going on like that.”
Thompson isn’t too cool for kids’ TV- he says he “owes a lot” to Nickelodeon for his success.
