On CBS Sunday Morning, Jaouad said the couple had discussed marriage for years, so her diagnosis wasn't a factor in Batiste's proposal. But they decided to take the window before her procedure to make things official, using bread ties as wedding bands for their small ceremony.

"And I'll tell you, we walked into that bone marrow transplant unit on cloud nine," Jaouad added. "We were so happy, so brimming with love and positivity from this beautiful evening that we'd had. And I really believe that that carried us through."

She continued, "But then COVID happened and it's still happening and we just realized we'd be planning this for the rest of our lives and never doing it. So we decided one day to go to the Honda Center in Anaheim [California]. Honestly, I have to say if any of you have planned a wedding, you probably know this, I do not want stomach ulcers from planning my own wedding."

"This was perfect," Pinto said. "It was absolutely perfect. We got married and then we got to go home and take an afternoon nap."

The actor then made a reference to Tom Cruise's infamous appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2005, when he jumped up on the couch to express his excitement about then-girlfriend Katie Holmes.

"I'm not going to jump up and down on the couch on the talk show and express my excitement that way," Highmore told Jimmy Kimmel. "I know that you do that in America. But I'm as happy as a Brit can be and I'm married to a very wonderful woman now. So yes, I feel very happy."
