Are Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn finally getting married after watching their son's wedding ceremony? That's the latest tabloid story about the couple of 36 years. Gossip Cop has learned it's untrue.
Russell and Hawn have remained happily unmarried for more than three decades, but according to the National Enquirer, the longtime partners have decided to tie the knot. The final push the couple supposedly needed was watching their 33-year-old son, Wyatt Russell, marry actress Meredith Hagner over Labor Day Weekend. "Kurt and Goldie were impressed that Wyatt embraced marriage and want to make sure his kids know their grandma and grandpa are married too!" says an anonymous source.
"Goldie's never loved anybody the way she does Kurt," the alleged tipster continues, "and realizes they should spend their golden years as man and wife!" The outlet further contends that the two are planning a Christmas wedding, as the couple thinks "it will be a great way to ring in the New Year."
It should be noted, this is Wyatt's second marriage after previously getting hitched to stylist Sanne Hamers in 2014 before divorcing in 2017. The magazine doesn't bother to explain why Hawn and Russell only felt motivated to marry after their son's second time walking down the aisle. Additionally, Wyatt doesn't have any children yet, so we're not sure who the tabloid is referring to when it says "his kids." Hawn's two children from her previous marriage to Bill Hudson both have three kids, but the outlet doesn't ever refer to them.
Hawn and Russell have simply never felt the need to obtain a marriage license to prove their love and dedication to one another. Hawn explained on The Oprah Winfrey Show all the way back in 1991 why she has no interest in getting married. "If you leave the door open," she said, "you'll never walk out of it." The actress also joked that she and Russell were "far too together" to get married. A source close to the situation confirms that Hawn and Russell haven't changed their stance on marriage in the nearly four decades they've been together.
Gossip Cop has had to debunk many fake rumors about the longtime couple over the years, but these phony articles typically involve a breakup. We busted the Enquirer back in 2017 for a phony cover story about Russell and Hawn splitting over the actress's so-called "secret lover," who didn't exist.
The following year, Gossip Cop busted the tabloid's sister publication, OK!, for wrongly reporting Russell and Hawn were calling it quits. As recently as June, we called out the Globe, another one of the Enquirer's sister outlets, for publishing a bogus article about Russell and Hawn desperately trying to "save their romance," After all these years, the tabloids still have zero insight into the couple's relationship.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
