Studdard, 29, arrived at the Shelby County Probate Office in Columbiana, Ala. with fiancée Surata Zuri McCants, 30, just before noon, filled out the paperwork and walked away with their license, an eyewitness says. Studdard is a native of nearby Birmingham.
"They looked really happy," says the eyewitness.
There was no immediate word on when they planned to marry. An Alabama marriage license is valid for 30 days.
