Kim Coles found herself a tenderoni to settle down with.
We’re just kidding, he’s not really a tenderoni. But the 53-year-old comedienne did marry a younger man, 41-year-old Reggie McKiver, in an intimate ceremony in the Dominican Republic this weekend.
The Living Single star met the former SWAT cop when he was part of her security detail at a natural hair expo. She told PEOPLE Style Watch that McKiver took her hand to “read her energy” and ended up “holding it a little bit longer than he should have.”
The two fell in love and he eventually proposed at The Olive Garden.
“I was just going to ask for the eggplant parmesan,” she told PEOPLE.
But all jokes aside, Coles said finding love came down to a matter of perfect timing.
“[My heart] was open just enough for Reggie to come though and I’m so glad he did. I’m 53 and Reggie is 41, but I’m not a cougar. I can’t run that fast. I’m a meerkat or a prairie dog. It’s about the right energy. It wasn’t like I’m trolling for younger men. It’s about energy. We’re ageless. Just two people on the same plane.
Coles’ dress was purchased from Della Curva, a company that makes gowns “for the curvy bride.”
Congratulations to the happy couple, who has a second wedding coming up in August.
