Gossip Girl’s Dan Humphrey Found His Real Life Serena…Twice!

You only get married twice, once! Just like Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley and Domino Kirke did!

Penn Badgley, known for playing Dan Humphrey on Tv Show Gossip Girl, got married to Domino Kirke once again. Kirke is more than just a musician; she’s a doula as well as a birth educator.

They exchanged their wedding vows earlier this year in February at a courthouse in Brooklyn. Kiske wore a lace gown with long sleeves and Badgley opted for a navy blue suit. This was followed by an intimate Reception at Maison May in Brooklyn.

On 26th June, they got married again in Upstate New York, but with more glitz and glam. This time around, she wore two dresses – a vintage white lace gown with a trail and a rather untraditional beige dress – and adorned these with some spectacular headpieces.

For this grand celebration, the couple chose a countryside venue owned by the bride’s mother in Waccabuc in New York. Their wedding was quite a star studded affair, and was not just limited to Zac Posen, Heidi Klum and Debra Messing.

Looks like lonely boy won’t be so lonely anymore…!
