Corbett admitted during the interview that him and his wife Derek are both very private about their personal lives. However, the John informed that they had already told their friends and family about their union.
Corbett said, “This is the first time either one of us has said anything publicly about it because, really, we haven’t had an opportunity, so you’re my buddy, and now I guess I’m telling, you know, all of America or the world. And, yeah, after 20 years we decided to get married. We didn’t want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back at and hated. We thought, ‘Well, let’s get one nice thing out of it,’ so we did it around Christmas.”
John and Bo met each other for the first time on a blind date, which was set up by their mutual friend and Hollywood agent, Norby Walters. The two have been together since they first met in 2002.
The couple’s fans are happy about the wedding, and they shared their happiness on social media. One of the fans wrote, “#BoDerek and #johncorbett finally got married? Saw them at an event at DGA years ago. He was so protective, because that woman Bo is literally achingly beautiful inside and out, then all the men in the room were magnetized, not even kidding. Interesting phenomenon! Congrats!
