May this autumn’s sorghum harvest be bountiful! We good now China?'”

Wonderwall claims Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton got married over the weekend. She posted, ”This past weekend was the best of my entire life. We’ve lived as husband and wife for a decade. We’ve built a family, and a farm and found our community. For years, publications have reported that we got married in 2014 or 2015 and that I’ve been married and divorced before. All untrue. But WE knew our truth. So it felt silly to try and correct anything. Here’s the God’s honest fact: From the moment I met @jeffreydeanmorgan, he was my husband. Rather than make vows right out of the gate, we lived them. For over ten years. The good times and the bad. Standing up there with our children at our sides – celebrating all that has been – was bliss. I love you, Jeffrey. So yeah. I’m Mrs. Morgan.”
