A gnarly wedding is officially in the works for one of your favorite stuntmen. Congratulations are in order for Steve-O and his girlfriend Lux Wright. The former Jackass star popped the question to his sweetheart over the weekend and shared with his 3.2 million Instagram followers how it all went down. After planning the proposal for six months, Steve couldn’t have asked for a better result – she said yes!
“Last night, in front of a bunch of my Jackass buddies, my closest friends, my dad, and my sister… she said “yes”. I planned that for more than six months, and I’m so happy— I can’t wait for you all to see it… #GNARLY @luxalot,” he wrote under an Instagram photo of the engagement bling.
Lux, a photographer and visual artist, shared a separate post gushing about her new fiancé. “Last night was the absolute best! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you,” she wrote.
The 43-year-old MTV star and his bride-to-be were stopped by TMZ and spilled more deets about the romantic proposal. What you didn’t see in the Instagram photos is that Steve-O actually got down on one knee while onstage at a comedy special he was filming in Denver. His Jackass co-stars and family watched from the audience. “It was an intense moment,” he said of the big night. “It was goal of mine, I wanted to find a life partner, I really found one in Lux here,” he gushed with his future wifey by his side.
As for the wedding, Steve-O and Lux have a rather unorthodox idea (of course). He’d like to use the money from the upcoming documentary in which he filmed the proposal to open up an animal sanctuary. This would eventually be the venue for their big day.
This will be Steve-O’s third trip down the isle. According to Us Weekly, he was previously married to Candy-Jane Tucker from 2002 to 2003 and Brittany Mcgraw from 2006 to 2008. He’s also been romantically linked to tattoo artist/makeup guru Kat Von D and model Elisabetta Canalis.
Congrats to the newly engaged couple!
There’s no sugarcoating in Steve-O’s memoir ’Professional Idiot’. The jackass-turned-author says he has no regrets when it comes to his professional career.
