Ricki Lake Elopes in Secret Ceremony!


Well, that was quick!

Former talk show host Ricki Lake and Christian Evans eloped on Sunday in a "secret ceremony" in Southern California, PEOPLE is reporting.

The 43-year-old, who most recently appeared on last season of Dancing With the Stars, naturally gushed over the event, telling PEOPLE: "It was a beautiful moment I will never forget. I wasn't anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited.

"It just feels like he was the right one all along," added Lake, of her 40-year-old hubby.

Ricki, who had been dating Evans for about 18 months before they eloped, was previously married to artist Rob Sussman before they split in 2003. They had two children together: Milo, 15, and Owen, 10.

Ricki, who is currently developing a new talk show for the fall, finished in third-place on Dancing with the Stars, with partner Derek Hough.
