MSNBC host Thomas Roberts weds longtime partner Patrick Abner

Thomas Roberts is a married man.

The MSNBC host wed his longtime partner, Patrick Abner, in a small ceremony over the weekend.

The wedding took place at Manhattan's Gansevoort Hotel on Park Ave. Current TV host and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom officiated the wedding.

Roberts' MSNBC colleagues including president Phil Griffin, Tamron Hall, and Chris Jansing were in attendance.

Roberts became the first cable news anchor to marry a person of the same sex. In August, he told the New York Observer that he was exercising like mad to get in shape for the big day.
