The Hoff is a husband. Baywatch actor David Hasselhoff is married to girlfriend Hayley Roberts. The couple wed in Puglia, Italy, on Tuesday, July 31, in an intimate friends and family-only ceremony.

Hasselhoff’s rep confirmed the news to multiple outlets on Wednesday.

The pair first met back in 2011 after a fortuitous fan encounter—at the time Roberts asked Hasselhoff for his autograph during a Britain’s Got Talent stop by Cardiff. He then asked for her phone number, and eventually, they started dating.

Hasselhoff grappled with his decision to propose to Roberts. He popped the question during a romantic picnic in Malibu back in 2016. “I had a saying, ‘You don’t get married because you want to live with someone, you get married because you can’t live without them,'” he previously told HELLO! “I felt that way.”

This is the third marriage for Hasselhoff, who was previously married to Catherine Hickland and Pamela Bach. He is dad to two daughters, Taylor, 28, and Hayley, 25, who both flew out for their father’s ceremony in Southern Italy.

“I told my girls what I was going to do and they were both really supportive,” he previously told Hello! of proposing. “It’s tough. No one wants to see their parents split up. But they love Hayley and they’re just happy for me.”
