TV personality Willard Scott is officially off the market at 80 years old after the "Today" show staple wed his longtime companion Paris Keena.

Host Matt Lauer shared the news during Wednesday's broadcast and called it "another surprise wedding" in the "Today" family, a reference to last week's announcement from co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, which also included news that she is pregnant.
