Guest host Wanda Sykes was the first to break the news on the show, revealing that Cheadle texted her after his marriage:

"You texted me at the top of the year, I guess, and you told me that you just got married. And I was like, oh damn, the pandemic got to Don and Bridgid.''

Sykes playfully shared that she thought the duo were already married:

“I think I texted something back like, ‘hey, if you’re happy, I am happy for you. I was like Cheadle went Hollywood. Because I didn’t know you guys weren’t married.”

The “Hotel Rwanda” actor also agreed to his friend’s teasing statement:

"Yeah, I mean, that's understandable given that we've been together 28 years before we got married. I hold you blameless."
