Corey Feldman is married, PEOPLE has learned!
The former child actor and mainstay of beloved ’80s movies like The Goonies and Stand by Me married his girlfriend Courtney Anne in a small, intimate ceremony on Tuesday, the star shared on Twitter.
Feldman, 45, proposed to his 27-year-old fiancée in the middle of November as they celebrated their 4th anniversary in Palm Springs.
With a middle school-style adorable note, Feldman popped the question to Anne at the Two Bunch Palms Resort.
“I was of course a bit nervous, as any man will admit, you never truly know what a woman is thinking. So as much as I assumed she would be happy and say ‘yes,’ there’s always that insecure part of my brain that regresses immediately to my childhood and thought maybe not,” Feldman said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “So I kinda chickened out and did a written proposal by writing a note with two check boxes, one for yes and the other for no. Of course there was a ring in there with the note. Luckily she said ‘yes!’ “
Feldman said that his bride-to-be “was very surprised, excited and started crying. She was surprised because we had both been so anti-marriage since we met. But seeing as she’s Canadian and with [Donald] Trump coming in, we didn’t want to risk being separated by new immigration laws,” and added, “We both know that we make a good team, and don’t want to be separated for any reason. So this is the best decision to protect our relationship.”
The couple previously revealed that revealed to PEOPLE that they had their sights set on a smaller wedding. “We are planning a small, secret wedding just for family, very soon,” he said. “We will likely have a big public wedding for friends and media to attend within a year.”
