Sunshine Deia and Tutt Chris Kattan’s marriage was one of those marriages in America’s entertainment that was short. The pair tied the knots in June 2008, separated 2 months later, and finalized their divorce in February 2009.
Since the divorce, nothing has been heard about Deia’s love life again. However, her ex-husband on the other hand has been linked to another model.
Sunshine Deia’s Marriage Lasted For 8 Weeks
Deia and Kattan took their marital vows on 28th June 2008 in Oakhurst, California in the presence of their family and friends. The wedding ceremony had in attendance some of Kattan’s friends including Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Brooke Shields, and Charlie Sheen.
Two months later, the duo’s union hit the rocks. They separated in August 2008. Their divorce was finalized 5 months after their separation in February 2009, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for it. Since the marriage was brief, reports say she was given a paltry amount to build her life, but there was no mention of the exact figure.
What’s more, the model was never pregnant during the brief marriage, so, they have no kids together.
Before the wedding, separation, and divorce drama, the model and the actor were said to have started dating in 2005 after meeting at a birthday party. After dating for about a year, Kattan asked her to marry him on 24th December 2006 in her grandparent’s house.
His initial plan for the proposal was to make it “special”, so he beckoned on a few people to help with the plan, but it didn’t work. According to him, he tried getting Bono of U2, Justin Timberlake, and a member of the pop band, Hanson, but, there was no positive response. Well, at the end of the day, he managed to pull off a surprise for her.
Barely 2 years after the proposal, a wedding took place.
