A famous TV star from the 1980s tied the knot.
Diff’rent Strokes actor Todd Bridges spoke to beautiful brunette photographer, designer and events planner Bettijo B. Hirschi at the historic Greystone mansion in Beverly Hills on Wednesday afternoon, according to TMZ.
The 57-year-old TV star met his lover just nine months ago through a dating app; he proposed just six months after their first date.
On Instagram, she describes herself as a “designer, photographer and sometimes supermom with 4 children”. She has been married before, but has not shared a photo with her husband on Instagram since 2017.
Only about 40 people attended Todd and Bettijo’s outdoor wedding ceremony, the website claimed.
He had his mother and siblings there, and the rest of the party was made up of Bettijo’s friends and family.
In pictures shared by the site, she was seen in a white satin dress with a veil and train while holding a bouquet of flowers. She was being led down the aisle by an elderly gentleman.
Bridges looked dapper in a dark suit with a white shirt.
It seems she has been married before as she has posted pictures with a man on Instagram along with four children. She last posted a photo of him in 2017.
The man was absent from a 2020 Halloween photo.
Todd was previously married to Dori Bridges from 1998 to 2012.
The actor was a household name in the 1980s for his role as Willis Jackson on the sitcom Diff’rent Strokes. The series aired from 1978 to 1986.
His two main colleagues from the series have died.
Gary Coleman, who played Arnold Jackson, died in Utah in 2010 at the age of 42.
And Dana Plato, who starred as Kimberly Drummond, died in Oklahoma in 1999 at the age of 34.
Lead Conrad Bain also died in Livermore, California in 2013 at the age of 89, and Charlotte Rae died in Los Angeles in 2018 at the age of 92.
He also had a recurring role as Monk on the sitcom Everybody Hates Chris.
Bridges worked as a commentator for the television series TruTV Presents: World’s Dumbest from 2008 to 2013….
His new wife has a bit of fame in her background.
Her website states that she has been a guest on The Martha Stewart Show and her work has also been featured on Real Simple, O, Redbook, Allure, Parents, Family Circle and Health.
She has over 20 years of experience in writing, editing and design, blogging, photography, props styling, stage decoration, event planning and advertising.
