Cheyenne Jackson — who is best known for playing the coach of “Vocal Adrenaline,” Dustin Goolsby, on Glee as well as his recurring role as Danny Baker on 30 Rock — tied the knot with his partner of 11 years, Monte Lapka, on Saturday.

“It’s official, after 11 years together, [their dog] Zora’s no longer a bastard. Married the best man I’ve ever known,” Jackson said in a tweet to his followers. Attached to the tweet was a photo of him and Lapka on the beach.

In an interview with the NBC affiliate in Los Angeles in October of last year, the Glee star dished on what his wedding would look like. “My dream wedding involves just close friends and good music…Our dog would be there,” Jackson said at the time. “Our dog, our daughter, Zora….Pretty boring, but something just nice and on the beach.”

Jackson told Frontiers before the legalization of gay marriage in New York that he and his then-partner were looking to make it official.

“At the time, when we became domestic partners last year, we were filling out some forms for life insurance or wills or something and we thought we should make this as legal as we can,” Jackson said. “I’d love to marry him. I think we will when it’s legal.”

The New York-based couple were able to play out their dream wedding in the state because of the passage of the Marriage Equality Act, which was passed by the New York State Legislature and signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in June of this year; it then became legal 30 days later on July 24.

    I think he was more well-known in 30 Rock than on Glee.

        If your limited brain capacity lacks the ability to form a constructive thought or attempt to counter the comment…then you are agreeing with the point. It is this mindset that these homosexuals have that is ruining the ethics of the country. In other parts of the world, these homosexuals would face death penalties. Iran….Uganda….
