Mazel Tov! Fran Drescher Ties the Knot


Fran Drescher is off the market.

The actress we know best as Fran Fine from “The Nanny” got married to inventor Shiva Ayyadurai Sunday, whom she met a little over a year ago when she watched him speak at a Deepak Chopra event, reports the Huffington Post.

“I was speaking on sages and scientists — in fact, talking about innovation and the fact that we need to more universally look at the models of innovation,” Ayyadurai explained to host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani. “And Fran heard my talk and we fell in love, and we’ve been together since that talk.”

The nuptials took place at an intimate ceremony with family and close friends at Fran’s beachside home. The bride wore a red Badgely Mischka gown, and the groom wore Ralph Lauren.

“Every day is a celebration with Fran,” Ayyadurai explained to the Huffington Post. “Every day is almost a romantic hangout with her. We’re always laughing, always enjoying ourselves.”

Drescher was previously married to producer Peter Marc Jacobson, but the two split when he revealed he was gay after 22 years of marriage. The pair remains close after their 1999 divorce and their TV Land sitcom “Happily Divorced” is based on their relationship.

Drescher announced the union on Twitter Sunday, posting a selfie with her groom:

This is one “Shiva” gathering that we can be happy about (ha ha ha). Congrats to the happy couple!
