AceShowbiz - Jonathan Knight has said "I do" with his boyfriend Harley Rodriguez. Confirming he's a married man after tying the knot with his longtime partner in secret, the New Kids On The Block star said the newlyweds were unable to celebrate with a lavish wedding reception due to restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We did (get married). But everybody just assumed we're married, so, I never say yes or no 'cause I don't wanna lie," Jonathan confirmed the happy news to Etonline.com when asked if the ring on his left hand meant the couple had exchanged vows.
Despite being unable to celebrate the nuptials in style, Jonathan revealed they are planning to throw a big wedding part soon. He added of the celebration, "It's coming."
Jonathan and Harley have been together since 2008 and took part in a reality show called "The Amazing Race" together in 2015. They got engaged a year later in 2016 when the singer-turned-TV star proposed during a holiday in Africa.
The 53-year-old former pop star is currently working on a TV show called "Farmhouse Fixer" in which he can indulge his passion for property renovations. He told Etonline.com of the project, "It's such a passion of mine, fixing up houses."
"I would post on Instagram pictures of projects I did, and fans would always ask me, 'What is your other job besides the New Kids?' and I just think it's so great to be able to showcase what I do, and people can watch."
Jonathan added that he's currently in a very happy place in his life, saying, "I'm about to turn 54, and I would have never thought in my 20s that at 54, I'd still be touring with the New Kids, and I would have a hit TV show on HGTV."
