Congrats! Fox News’ Jenna Lee Marries Navy SEAL Leif Babin

Congratulations are in order for Fox News’ Jenna Lee, who wed Navy SEAL Leif Babin July 3rd in Wimberley, Texas.

The Happening Now co-host’s ceremony was held at the Old Glory Ranch and preceded a reception where guests enjoyed hamburgers, sweet potato fries, cupcakes and “Pan de Campo” – Texas’ official bread. Oh, and most importantly: pink frozen margaritas, just like the couple had on their first date. All together now: “Awwww!”

Her new husband was formerly the executive officer of a Navy SEAL team in San Diego and has plans to study law at Fordham University.

Lee — who recently, and refreshingly, opened up about not changing her diet in anticipation of The Big Day — admitted that she didn’t shed a single tear during the ceremony, adding that walking down the aisle with Babin was “a dream come true.” And don’t worry, Lee fans: She’ll be keeping her name.

Lee articulated her feelings for Babin to the New York Times, including one specific fear she had at the beginning of their relationship:

I was worried initially how some might be critical of my relationship with Leif, how they might view it as skewing my ability to report on the war or the military. But being in love with someone who is willing to die for their country actually taught me so much more than I ever thought. It made me a better journalist.
