Melissa Etheridge marries ‘Nurse Jackie’ co-creator Linda Wallem


Two days after they both turned 53, Melissa Etheridge and Linda Wallem married. Etheridge wore a grey suit, while Wallem was in a white dress.

All four of Etheridge’s children participated in the wedding: Bailey Jean Cypher, 17; Beckett Cypher, 15; and twins Miller Steven Etheridge and Johnnie Rose Etheridge, 7.

The couple had been friends for more than a decade before they began dating in 2010. Last June, they announced their engagement following the Supreme Court’s historic decisions regarding gay rights, with Etheridge calling Wallem “my true love.”
