Kate Walsh is a Bikini Babe
Newlywed Kate Walsh straps on her blue bikini and enjoys an afternoon lounging by the pool with movie exec hubby Alex Young on Friday in Los Angeles. After a bit of fun in the sun, the Private Practice star collected her cat from the front lawn.
Kate, 39, and Alex, 36, tied the knot last Saturday in the town of Ojai north of Los Angeles. Here are some interview excerpts from this week’s OK! magazine (pick it up, they have exclusive pictures from the wedding!):
How does it feel to be married?
Kate: To be Kate Walsh-Young? Suddenly calm. We are so happy and blissed out. You think as a performer you’d be able to imagine, but there’s really nothing like it. It’s profound.
How did the weekend go?
Kate: I’ve had a 10-mile smile. We had an unexpected heat wave and there was a blackout during the reception dinner, but fortunately there was a backup generator! It’s just a lesson in life. You can only plan so much.
Any other last-minute hitches?
Kate: It was so hot in the church, and I felt faint. I was like, I think I need to drink some water. So I walked out to rehydrate. I walked back in, picked up the microphone, and said: “Hey, everybody! I’m back!” Theh gospel choir sang “Hallelujah.”
How did Alex propose?
Alex: We were at this beautiful restaurant called Gary Danko [in San Francisco]. I had the [Neil Lane] ring with me. Butterlies are a big theme in Kate’s life and in our life. We’re sitting there and the appetizer came out in the shape of a butterfly…
Kate: It was kinf of ridiculous, actually. It was a tuna tartare with wasabi antennae!
Alex: I found myself starting to talk about what Kate means to me…
Kate: And then I realized, ‘Oh! This is it!’
Alex: I pulled out the ring, and it was just one of those great moments.
Kate: Before, he asked my brother’s permission. Which was really wonderful.
