(Newser) – The work partners are now life partners: Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough got married this weekend. Vanity Fair reports the co-hosts of MSNBC's Morning Joe wed Saturday in a secret ceremony at the National Archives in Washington, DC, with Rep. Elijah Cummings acting as officiant. The nuptials were so hush-hush that those invited didn't get formal invites, but simply a phone call, and the venue wasn't revealed until right before the event. "We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe," Brzezinski, 51, tells the magazine.

Just Brzezinski, the 55-year-old Scarborough, the six children they have between them, four close friends, and Brzezinski's mother were in attendance at the actual ceremony in front of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, with a reception of about 40 at a local French bistro afterward. Scarborough said back in August that he realized his colleague was the one "after a couple of years of sort of slinking around my house and being depressed … I was being Bridget Jones," per People. The big question: Will Brzezinski change her name? "Yup," she texted VF writer Emily Jane Fox after the event. (Behind Brzezinski and Scarborough's "breakup" with President Trump.)
