Stephen Fry is a 57 year old man who also happens to be a famous British comedian and actor (A Bit of Fry and Laurie, The Hobbit, Bones). And he announced today that he is engaged to wed his 27 year old partner, Elliott Spencer, with this tweet:
Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I’m very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!— Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) January 6, 2015
As I see it, a 30 year age gap between spouses is not that big of a deal. Love works in all sorts of ways, people. But what a way to announce the wedding! “A certain cat”! “A certain bag”! I love it so much I reached out to Mr. Fry and his assistant sent me over all the tweet drafts he made before deciding on the tweet above. Check ‘em out:
@stephenfry: Oy. It appears as though a certain chicken has come home to a certain roost. I’m very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Yeah Right!
@stephenfry: Hup. Looks like a certain fact is not a secret any more. I’m very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Ain’t no way!
@stephenfry: Oh boy. Seems as if I’m certainly gonna marry this dude. Super pumped but wanted it on the down low. Maybe next time!
@stephenfry: Getting’ married ya’ll, gonna have a wedding, bring your cats!
@stephenfry: Hey @peterjackson, was wondering if you took any of my notes on edits to The Hobbit: TBO5A. Feels like we can get that under 3 hrs long. Also, Im marrying Elliott
