Congratulations are in order!

Comedian Mario Cantone has married his partner of 20 years, musical theater director Jerry Dixon, Cantone revealed Friday on The View.

"I got married for the same reasons you did," the Sex and the City actor, 51, tells fellow newlywed Joy Behar on the show. "We're older now. We've been together 20 years. After 20 years you're like, 'Thanks for the anti-climactic honeymoon, government!' "

Cantone says their wedding was officiated by pastor Jay Bakker, the son of the late Tammy Faye Bakker Messner.



"It was beautiful, just my family there," Cantone says, adding of his new husband: "I love him. He's a good man."
