The marriage of Wagner, 78, and Tomlin, 74, was first reported by columnist Liz Smith, who wrote, “my longtime friends, Lily Tomlin and her love, the writer Jane Wagner, got married on the eve of 2014. … My wish is that their happiness will be as great as their combined talents.”

The couple (pictured in 2001) collaborated on some of Tomlin’s most famous projects. Wagner wrote Tomlin’s Tony-winning one-woman show “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe,” which was adapted from a Broadway play into a film, and the movie “The Incredible Shrinking Woman.”
