Alan Cumming Weds
Grant Shaffer

Actor Alan Cumming renewed his vows by getting married a second time to his partner Grant Shaffer this past weekend.

Alan CummingActor Alan Cumming has tied the knot… again. The 46 year-old Scottish star of The Good Wife announced the news on Twitter.

"On the 5th anniversary of our wedding in London grant and I tied the knot again in NYC!!!" he wrote, posting a picture of him and his partner, commercial illustrator Grant Shaffer, hugging at New York's Soho Grand Hotel.

He ended his tweet with the hash tag that read, "Eat me Rick Santorum," referring to the Republican presidential candidate's stance on gay marriage.

He later posted another photo with the caption, "Just married."

Cumming and Shaffer had a civil ceremony five years ago at the Royal Naval College, with guests including Sir Ian McKellen, Geri Halliwell and Monica Lewinsky looking on.

"Not only are we so happy to be able to celebrate our love for each other, but also to be able to do it in a country that properly recognizes the rights of same-sex couples," Cumming said in a statement at the time. "As residents of America we would have loved to marry there, but we hope that soon the civil rights that we have been afforded in the U.K. will be available to all gay Americans, and we look forward to celebrating not only our marriage, but the end of prejudice."

New York became the sixth state in the U.S. to recognize same-sex marriages last June.

Cumming, who has said in the past that he is bisexual, married Hilary Lyon at age 21. They divorced eight years later and he was later engaged to his Circle of Friends co-star Saffron Burrows. They split up and he has been dating Shaffer since 2005.

"It is confusing for people because I'd been married before. Now I'm married again, to a man, but I'd been married to a woman, and gone out with women. And then, I hadn't really had regular relationships with men, long-term ones, I mean," he told Oasis magazine. "But amongst my friends, amongst people I'd known, I was always bisexual."
