“Our wedding day was perfect, there was so much love in the room,” Slaton told People at the time. “I literally married my best friend.”

“I love waking up every morning and seeing his face. And seeing his face every night before going to bed.”

However, Slaton reportedly ended things with Willingham in May because he had not been “following his diet in rehab.” Page Six has not independently confirmed those claims.
