Tracy Morgan marries longtime girlfriend
Tracy Morgan has married the woman who has stood beside him since his terrible auto accident.
People magazine reports that the “30 Rock” star married longtime girlfriend Megan Wollover in an emotional ceremony Sunday. The couple have weathered quite a storm since Morgan was involved in a horrific car crash in 2014 that claimed the life of his friend comedian James McNair.
A Walmart truck driven by Kevin Roper rear-ended the limo van carrying Morgan, McNair and five others on the New Jersey Turnpike shortly before 1 a.m. June 7, 2014. The National Transportation Safety Board ruled that Roper’s fatigue probably caused the crash, and Walmart settled lawsuits from McNair’s family, Morgan and other injured passengers for undisclosed amounts.
Morgan has struggled to recover from his injuries, which included broken ribs, a broken leg and a broken nose. He is set to host “Saturday Night Live,” the show that made him famous, on October 17.
Wollover, who shares a 2-year-old daughter named Maven with Morgan, told People, “After almost losing Tracy last year, I am so grateful to finally be married to the love of my life.”
