Star Jones is a married woman! Meet her new husband, Ricardo Lugo, and her cute stepson

Star Jones just tied the knot!

Jones, a former panelist on "The View," wed Richard Lugo in front of 150 guests on a Royal Caribbean cruise to the Bahamas on Sunday. Among the guests were famous faces like Phaedra Parks, Holly Robinson Peete, Tina Knowles-Lawson and Richard Lawson.

The bride wore a white Dennis Basso gown. Before embarking on the trip, she posted a photo of a bag from Kleinfeld's -- and it was actually double celebration! The day before their wedding was Jones' birthday, so Lugo threw her an extravagant birthday party on their cruise ship.

Ready...Set...Go! I'm doing it. Apartment is packed, movers have everything on the truck and I'm sitting on the plane about to step into a new phase of life. After 20 amazing years...I am no longer a NYC resident. Crazy right...no more #Michaels every Wednesday. No more #JeanGeorges on Thursdays. No more morning @soulcycle with @staceygnyc or services at #ChristianCulturalCenter. Before she went home to God, my dear friend #NatalieCole told me to step out of my comfort zone. Now, I'm headed to #Chicago to step out on faith...and for love with @ricardolugochicago. May God bless us both. Look out #windycity here comes @starjonesesq!
I love a dressed up #datenight with the most kind, smart & handsome man I know! #angelball
Thank you for all the #birthday messages. It was truly a fun day and absolutely a magical night!
Happy 4th from our family to yours!

Jones and Lugo share a similar educational and career background. Jones earned her J.D. and passed the bar in 1987, while Lugo graduated from University of Wisconsin Law School and works as an attorney. He works for a firm that helps fathers fight for custody of their children during divorce proceedings, Newsweek reports. (Lugo himself has a son, Jake, from a previous marriage.)

Jones, 55, is head-over-heels for Lugo and his son: "This is my family,” she told People in 2016 as she introduced both men.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
