Cheryl Hines weds Robert F. Kennedy Jr. in Hyannis Port

By Phyllis Stark. CREATED Aug 3, 2014

Actress Cheryl Hines and attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr. married Saturday evening at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. The couple reportedly married under a tent in front of family and friends during the Kennedy family’s annual reunion.

Hines, 48, is the former star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and, more recently, “Suburgatory.” She also works as a director and producer, in addition to her TV and film acting roles. Kennedy, 60, is “the president of the Waterkeeper Alliance, an international water protection organization, and a senior lawyer for the Natural Resources Defense Council, both in New York,” according to The New York Times. “He is also the chief prosecuting attorney for Riverkeeper, another environmental organization, and a host of ‘Ring of Fire,’ a nationally syndicated radio show.”
He is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, who was assassinated in 1968 while running for president, and had previously represented New York in the Senate and served as attorney general in the administration of his brother, President John F. Kennedy.
“Ms. Hines and Mr. Kennedy credit [‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ creator and star] Larry David for bringing them together,” The New York Times reports. “Mr. David introduced them two years in a row, first while at a ski resort in Banff, Alberta, and again the next year in Deer Valley, Utah.”
They announced their engagement in April. It is the second marriage for Hines and the third for Kennedy. He has six children and she has one.
