After dating for 28 years, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed are finally deciding to settle down. You sure, guys? Don’t want to rush into anything.
Simmons, 62, decided to propose to his longtime girlfriend and mother of his children earlier this year. Oh, and by the way, 62 isn’t his age, it’s the number of women he’s slept with this week.
"You're the only friend I've got. You're the only one I love ... and you're the only one I ever will love," The KISS rocker said, before getting down on one knee.
The wedding invitation reveals they will swap vows at the legendary and beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel. The dress code? “Classy cocktail attire….although we know some Rockstar attire will be worn.”
I really, really want to see some KISS face paint at this wedding.
The announcement reads:
“After 28 years of loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot. Our mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our father's life ... well, it doesn't change that much."
It continues: “But we will be united as a family in spirit and in title forever.”
Simmons and Tweed have two children together, Nick, 22 and Sophie, 18. Nick did a sketch for the wedding invitation and Sophie came up with the message.
“There will no longer be a Team Tweed or a Team Simmons but instead a Team Tweed-Simmons,” the message continues.
The wedding is set for October 1st. The two recently reconciled after a split that Tweed claimed they were unlikely to recover from. Their reality show, Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels has documented all of their family issues.
The split might have had something to do with Simmons’ philandering behavior. He’s famously claimed to have had sex with 4,600 women. To put things in perspective, that’s one woman every day for twelve years. To really put things in perspective, the Center for Disease Control is going to name an STD after him.
At the time of their separation, Tweed told PEOPLE:
“I need some sort of commitment.” She threatened that if Simmons’ behavior continued, they would be over for good. “Something has to give.”
When he finally proposed, Tweed took to Twitter to tell everyone it was “the most shocking moment” of her life.
It was to everyone else, too, as Simmons has said in the past that he will never, ever get married. It didn’t bother Tweed in the past, as she’s said:
“He opted never to marry. I opted not to bitch about it. I`m not the jealous type.”
I guess people change. But one thing you can bet will stay the same forever—Gene Simmons’ hair. That black cotton candy poof hasn’t moved since 1973.
We wish these crazy kids the best.
