John continued: "We're pretty private people, we didn't make an announcement. All our friends and family knew.

"But this is the first time either one of us have said anything publicly about it because really, we haven't had an opportunity but you're my buddy and I guess I'm telling all of America and the world. Yeah, after 20 years we decided to get married."

John admitted that he and Bo "didn't want 2020 to be that thing that everybody looks back and hated," adding: "And we thought, let's get one good thing out of it so we [married] around Christmas."
