Beth Ditto is getting married!
Beth Ditto is getting married next year! The Gossip front woman has revealed she will wed her lesbian partner Kristen in Hawaii in June 2013.
Currently in London to promote her new album, A Joyful Noise, Ditto told reporters: "I'm getting married next year to my partner Kristen in June. She might be somewhere here, in the hotel, walking around. I'm doing it in Hawaii because my girlfriend is from there."
Apparently not everyone is thrilled that the couple are getting married in June. The Gossip's manager is hoping they will change the date to April so she can attend.
"I'm not getting married in April because it's the raining season there!" she said.
Beth's engagement ring has a flower-shaped setting and features a round diamond. After nine years with her former transgender partner Freddie Fagula, Beth then embarked on a romance with Kristen who was her assistant at the time.
"It was something that I kept hidden deep inside of me. But everyone knew. Even people are parties and clubs would be like, 'When are they (me and Kristen) going to get together?' There was always a little guilt inside of me because I felt I was cheating, but I never cheated. We never did anything... I dated Freddie for nine years, and I was always worried it was going to end. With Kristen I never worry about it ending, I just feel completely full and whole."
I wonder which designer she'll ask to create her Hawaiian-style wedding dress. Congrats Beth!
