Forte and Modling first met in 2018 and started dating seriously the following year.

The happy couple got engaged in 2020 and they welcomed a daughter named Zoe last February.

The Primetime Emmy-nominated artist recently told People that his early wedding plans were halted by the onset of the global pandemic.

“We were engaged just before the first COVID lockdown. And so when we just started talking to planners, people had to stop their weddings,” he said.

Forte said he and Modling were initially good at putting their plans on hold, though they did occasionally start planning the event.

He recalled: “Back then we said, ‘We’re not in a hurry. We can figure it out later.” So then COVID will pass and we’ll be quarantined for a long time… And so we weren’t in a rush, but every now and then we thought, “Let’s just do it.”

The performer said he and his now-wife decided to have their wedding ceremony on a whim while working on MacGruber, as many of his friends were already on set.

“They were already in Albuquerque, so we decided at the very last minute, ‘Let’s just have this wedding, surprise my parents.’ They didn’t even know until they pulled into the parking lot,” he said.

He then commented that “we just had a really nice, lovely wedding, quite small, behind Jorma Taccone’s house… It was just a lovely day.”

Forte noted that he and Modling were committed to each other for an extended period of time prior to their wedding ceremony, although he was particularly happy to be her husband.

MacGruber is based on the skits of the same name, which originally aired on Saturday Night Live.

Forte and several of his co-stars took their roles from the sketches in a 2010 film that centered on the titular character.

The Jorma Taccone-directed feature received mostly mixed reviews upon its original release.

Development of the new program was initially announced in 2019, when it was revealed that the Saturday Night Live alum was working on a show based on the character.

MacGruber finally received the official green light from Peacock executives in August 2020.

Physical production began last June and Zane was brought in to fill a role previously held by Mickey Rourke.

Filming took several months before the show’s cast and crew wrapped up in August.

The first season of MacGruber will consist of eight episodes and will be available on Peacock on December 16.
