Things are pretty good for Star Jones. Not only did she enjoy a beautiful 56th birthday celebration on a cruise ship but also wedded aboard the Bahamas ship.
She exchanged vows with her sweetheart Ricardo Lugo in the presence of their family and friends while sailing in The Bahamas on the Royal Caribbean’s Anthem Of The Seas.
Jones took to Instagram, where she shared some photos from the two consecutive events, first with the birthday celebration on Saturday before sharing other amazing snaps from the bachelorette party along with those of her pet pooch Pinky Michelle Jones.
She also added another very beautiful picture of her and her new husband standing against the sunset sky. In the caption, she wrote, “Yesterday was my birthday…and today is our wedding day at sea! Our #AnthemToLove has officially begun on the #AnthemOfTheSeas!”
Jones and Lugo had been dating for years before they got engaged last summer.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Lugo is a state attorney working for State Attorney Kim Foxx in Illinois.
The wedding ceremony brought in notable names, including singer Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles-Lawson, who shared a picture on Instagram with the caption, “With all my beautiful fly girls on the seas here to celebrate the love and Union of Star Jones and Ricardo.”
From 2004 to 2008, Jones was married to Al Reynolds, a former investment banker.
She made a name for herself in the entertainment industry during her stint on ABC’s The View, where she appeared alongside original panelists Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters. She was on the daytime show from 1997 to 2006.
In 2011, she got a slot on The Celebrity Apprentice competition, where she came out fifth.
In November of last year, her ex-husband Reynolds opened up about being bis*xual.
Jones is quite respected for her TV roles and has been praised as very intelligent by many of her fans. One user on DailyMail UK wrote, “I saw her on one of the cable news programs giving her analysis as part of a panel discussion, and she is actually quite an intelligent woman.” Supporting the sentiment, another user wrote, “She was the Senior Assistant DA. She also holds a JD which is a Doctor of law type degree.”
Magnolia Flower wrote, “Congratulations girl you have done yourself proud.”
And, of course, we all wish her the very best in her marriage.
