Actor Tyler Christopher– known to fans of daytime drama General Hospital as Nikolas Cassadine, a Russian prince– has found his real life princess in Brienne Pedigo, a pit reporter for the ABC/ESPN Indy car circuit, who became the soap star’s wife on September 27, 2008. A blind date in September 2006 opened the couple’s eyes to true love, and an engagement one month later led to their happily ever after.
According to the actor’s official web site, 200 friends and family members gathered together for an afternoon ceremony in Ojai, California, where they witnessed the groom’s cousin– actor Derk Cheetwood, who shares screen time with Mr. Christopher as Max Gambetti on the iconic ABC show– take on the role of best man.
This is Tyler Christopher’s second marriage, having formerly been the husband of Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, who exchanged vows in Vegas with the Daytime Emmy-nominated actor in 2002. The pair’s union lasted two years.
