The captain is ready to complete his next mission. Patrick Stewart from Star Trek the Next Generation and X-Men fame is now ready to take the marital plunge for the third time. Stewart’s first marriage to Shelia Falconer lasted 24 years and ended in divorce in 1990. In 1997, Stewart married Wendy Neuss who was a producer on Star Trek The Next Generation. That marriage ended in divorce 3 years later in 2000. His fans are hoping that the third time will be a charm as Stewart gets ready to walk down the aisle again.
Stewart has been romantically linked to Ozell since 2007 shortly after Stewart split from British actress Lisa Dillon. The jazz singer and the science fiction legend had their first date with her coming to watch him in his performance of Macbeth where she then contemplated whether to meet him backstage or head for the hills. Having seen every episode of Star Trek is what lured her backstage knowing that beneath that performance lay a great man. For some time after the two maintained a long distance relationship as both pursued their own careers.
Ozell show off her oversized white gold diamond ring on twitter and the world was abuzz with the size of the stone. The solitaire was one that no one could take their eyes off of. Well done sir. However, the highlight of the ceremony for science fiction fans is the fact that the ceremony will be officiated by Stewart’s lifelong friend Sir Ian McKellen. It is rumored that the idea for McKellen to officiate the ceremony was Ozell’s. The pair has been friends for a lifetime and the couple could not imagine having anyone else standing with them on that special day. This will not be the first time that McKellen has officiated a ceremony. In a previous ceremony he joined a couple in a civil ceremony and wore a white gown that he bought in India stating that, you must not upstage the bride.”
