The New­ly­weds

ABC Soaps In Depth - - News -

Soap-hop­per Jen­nifer Bassey (ex-Quinn, GH; Mar­ian, ALL MY CHIL­DREN) eloped with LAW & OR­DER vet Ge­orge Bam­ford on April 19. “We got mar­ried at the clerk of the court in down­town Man­hat­tan, and we’re very glad we did!” she tells Soaps In Depth. “His kids live out of town. I fig­ured that if we in­vited any­body, then ev­ery­one’s gonna be an­gry. So we didn’t in­vite any­one. And you know, when you’ve lived this long, there are a lot of peo­ple!”

The cou­ple, both wid­owed, met when Bassey, who was trained as a grief coun­sel­lor fol­low­ing her hus­band’s pass­ing, helped Bam­ford re­cover from the death of his wife of 50 years. Nei­ther of them ex­pected to find love again, but their union cer­tainly seems to be heaven-sent. “When we were fin­ished, I said [to the clerk], ‘What’s your name?’” Bassey shares. “He said ‘An­gel.’ And Ge­orge said, ‘We got mar­ried by an an­gel!’”

“We snuck off to do it!” says the bride.
