Us Weekly reports the couple exchanged vows on Thursday in New York City.
“Many thanks to the NYC Clerk’s office, especially James Mitchell who married me toÂ my love Traci Lynn Johnson! Excited for the next chapters . . .,” Barber stated via Twitter. Johnson also expressed her joy over the nuptials, tweeting photos of their wedding rings with the caption, “We’re Married.”
Barber allegedly met Johnson, a former TODAY show contributor and NBCÂ intern,Â inÂ April 2010 while he and his wife were separated. At the time, Cha was pregnant with twins while caring for their two sons, A.J. and Chason.
Johnson reportedly babysat the children from time to time.
In August 2010, Barber spoke with Entertainment Tonight to defend his actions.
“We were only friends when I was still married. I was separated, out of my house so it wasn’t until then that we took things to the next level,” he said. Johnson backed Barber’s claim adding, “[…] Plenty of people who are separated have boyfriends and girlfriends.”
Congratulations to the couple! (We think.)
