Jenny Slate is now married to Ben Shattuck — after multiple attempts to pull off a wedding during the pandemic.

The I Want You Back actress, 39, revealed to Marie Claire that she and Shattuck wed in their living room on New Year’s Eve. They had postponed and canceled their nuptials three times due to the COVID outbreak, resizing it until they decided to do the intimate at-home version.

“We were planning on a [wedding] that ended up being almost 200 people, and then now, it’s just our parents and siblings. We each invited six friends… I actually like it,” she told the magazine. “I like it better.”

Added Slate, “I didn’t realize how the large thing was making me feel uncomfortable, a little bit. Just a little.” 

The couple announced their engagement in September 2019. Their original plan was to tie the knot in June 2020 but that was canceled.
