Former child actor Corey Feldman has finally tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Courtney Anne. The actor’s reps confirmed the news to Entertainment Tonight.
Feldman and Anne exchanged vows at Finge Lounge in Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The wedding reportedly happened less than two weeks after the Goonies actor proposed to the 27-year-old blonde model in Palm Springs, California, as they were celebrating their four-year anniversary. The couple has been dating since 2012.

Toofab was the first to report about the wedding. According to the website, the bride walked down the aisle wearing her Shail K. wedding dress that featured gold embroidery and a sheer panel over her stomach. Feldman looked dapper in his Pierce Ross tux. He kept his long black hair tied back in a ponytail.
The gossip site also reported that they exchanged hand-written vows and celebrated the union with a vegan wedding cake. They also got their guests to participate in the Mannequin Challenge, which they have not shared yet.

Reports said Feldman and his girlfriend celebrated their joint bachelor-bachelorette party at Vegas’ Chateau Nightclub over the weekend.
This is the third marriage for the 45-year-old actor, but he admitted he “chickened out” when he proposed to his fiancee. Feldman said he wrote “Will you marry me?” on a card with boxes for “Yes” and “No.”
“I was, of course, a bit nervous, as any man will admit, you never truly know what a woman is thinking,” Feldman recalled. “So as much as I assumed she would be happy and say ‘yes,’ there’s always that insecure part of my brain that regresses immediately to my childhood and thought maybe not.”
Feldman was happy and rather relieved after the model said “Yes.”
“Of course there was a ring in there with the note. Luckily she said ‘yes!'” the Stand By Me star reportedly told People.
Describing his fiancee’s reaction, Feldman previously told the magazine what went down.
“She was very surprised, excited and started crying. She was surprised because we had both been so anti-marriage since we met.”
He also revealed that one of the reasons they married is that they want to make sure she won’t get deported since Trump won the presidency. Anne, who is also a member of his Corey’s Angels band, is Canadian.
“But seeing as she’s Canadian and with Trump coming in, we didn’t want to risk being separated by new immigration laws,” Feldman candidly shared.
He added that he is confident that they will make a “good team,” and he sees their marriage as the “best decision” to protect their relationship.
Feldman had been married twice before. His former wife, Susie Sprague, is a model and a former participant in the reality show The Two Coreys. He has a 12-year-old son, named Zen, with Sprague. He secretly married Beverly Hills, 90210 actress Vanessa Marcil in 1989 and divorced a few years later.
When asked about his son’s reaction to his recent wedding, Feldman confirmed that Zen approved of the union. According to the former child star, his son and Anne get along very well.
The actor-singer confirmed that Sprague got remarried two years ago.
“I think this was an expected and natural progression for him,” he said.
“So when I asked him if he would be happy about it, his answer was ‘it’s about time.’ That was good enough for us,” a very happy Feldman shared.
