Broadway star Nathan Lane marries partner of 18 years

Joe Williams November 21, 2015

The actor got hitched to his long-term partner in New York last week.

A star of both stage and screen, Nathan Lane married his longterm partner Devlin Elliot this week.

The Tony-Award winning star of ‘The Producers’, ‘The Birdcage’ and ‘Modern Family’, married Elliot – a playwright and producer – in an intimate ceremony on Tuesday, reports People magazine.

Lane’s spokesman said: “Nathan and Devlin were married in a small ceremony in New York City this week. Everyone is extremely happy.”

The pair recently worked together on a children’s book, ‘Naughty Mabel’ – inspired by their nine-year-old pug Mable.

“I mentioned to Devlin how hilariously over-privileged our Mabel was becoming, and jokingly suggested we should write a children’s book called ‘Mabel of the Hamptons,” Lane said of the book.

“Devlin thought this was a great idea and actually sat down and wrote a first draft.

“I realised he meant business and so we dove in together, and many drafts later ‘Naughty Mabel’ was born.”

Whilst promoting the book, the pair discussed possible wedding plans on talk show The View – saying the ceremony would be a very “low-key event”

“Well, we don’t want to rush into anything,” he said.

Although he has gained wider recognition due to recent TV stints on both ‘The Good Wife’ and ‘Modern Family’, one his best roles is arguably that of Albert the drag queen opposite that late, great Robin Williams in ‘The Birdcage’.

Lane publicly confirmed he was gay in 1999 – even though he had already told his family at age 21.
