Talk-show host and “DWTS” finalist Ricki Lake and fiance Christian Evans eloped on Sunday, reports People.

Lake, 43, and Evans, 40, married in a “secret ceremony” in Southern California. She posted a photo of herself in her wedding gown Tuesday on Twitter, saying “Love is in the air.”

“It was a beautiful moment I will never forget,” Lake tells People. “I wasn’t anxious or nervous. I was really relaxed and excited.”

Lake split in 2003 with first husband Rob Sussman, with whom she has two sons (ages 15 and 10), and doubted she would ever remarry.

But after meeting Evans, “It just feels like he was the right one all along,” she says.

The couple got engaged in August 2011 after a year of dating.

Lake appeared last season on “Dancing with the Stars,” where she came in third place with partner Derek Hough.
