The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons weds long-time partner
[Editor’s note: This post may contain spoilers of the recently concluded season 10 of The Big Bang Theory.]
In the finale of “The Big Bang Theory”’s tenth season, Sheldon Cooper dropped down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend Amy Farrah Fowler.
But in reality, the actor behind the lanky, awkward physicist, Jim Parsons, just tied the knot with longtime partner Todd Spiewak at the Rainbow Room in New York over the weekend.
The news was confirmed by Parsons’ representative Jillian Roscoe to USA Today.
The 44-year-old, who’s been giving life to the wisecracking genius since 2007, first came out as gay in 2012.
In an Instagram post last year, he publicly professed his love for Spiewak, an art director, whom he shared meeting 14 years ago. “It was the best thing that ever happened to me, no contest,” he caption his post.
I met this guy (the one with the mic) 14 years ago today and it was the best thing that ever happened to me, no contest. One of his greatest gifts to me is that he no longer takes me to sing karaoke. Also, I believe this was a selfie with an actual camera, as our phones couldn’t do that back then hahaha! #todd #anniversary ❤️
The critically acclaimed CBS sitcom, meanwhile, continues to be one of the most well-received shows on television, and has been extended for two more seasons.
A spinoff prequel called “Young Sheldon”, which delves into the earlier years of Parsons’ character, is currently in production stage. Khristian Ibarrola/JB
