Johnny Rzeznik, front man for the Goo Goo Dolls, married his longtime girlfriend Melina Gallo on Friday in Malibu.
The musician told People there’s a reason for getting hitched now, after dating since 2005. "We've been together a while and I'm not going anywhere and we'd like to start a family. I'd prefer to be married when I have kids." Atta boy!
He's 47. They didn't include her age, but when asked how many kids they want, John said, "We'll start with one and deal with it from there." Good plan.
According to People, the couple were married under an old oak tree in front of about 120 guests, including John's Goo Goo Dolls bandmates. Melina wore an Enzoani gown and John decided to wear a dark green Gucci suit instead of a tuxedo. (Whatever works!) He did not sing at the wedding; he said their song was Adele's version of "Make You Feel My Love." They'll be honeymooning in Italy and France after he's done touring in the fall. He was married once before for four years, divorcing in 1997.
People didn't share any pics from the wedding (we'd love to see the green suit) but here's a photo of the couple together.
Congrats to the newlyweds — and good luck with the baby-making!
