Fox News contributor Guy Benson marries boyfriend, says Megyn Kelly brought them together

Congrats are in order for Fox News contributor Guy Benson, who married his love Adam Wise in a Napa Valley ceremony on Saturday.

Benson, who hosts Fox News Radio’s “The Guy Benson Show,” told People that he and Wise first met in 2015 after Benson appeared on Fox News for what he called “the most terrifying television appearance of my life,” an episode of Megyn Kelly’s “The Kelly File” to promote his book, “End Of Discussion.” Benson came out during the interview. 

Wise said that he watched Benson’s episode on “The Kelly File” while at home with his parents in Colorado, emailed the TV commentator out of the blue, and the rest is history.

“I wanted help reconciling being a conservative and being gay,” Wise said. “I’d come out; I’d been out for a while.”

“There was a reason that I approached Megyn in the first place about doing this very sensitive interview at that vulnerable moment in my life, because I trusted her and I knew that she would be a total class act and a total professional about it, and she of course delivered,” Benson said about Kelly, who attended the wedding with husband Douglas Brunt. “And just, you don’t really ever forget someone doing something like that for you, ever.”

Looking at their wedding’s guest list, Benson said there was “no way that I was not going to invite her to this culmination of (his) journey” with Wise.

Over the course of two unforgettable evenings, we had the privilege of listening to *ten* toasts from our friends and family members. Usually, with such things, there’s a weak link along the way: Someone inevitably rambles on a little too long, strays into awkward territory, or has been slightly over-served. But not this weekend. Each and every speech was perfect — poignant, hilarious, moving. Not sure I’ve laughed so hard, or shed so many tears, in recent memory. We love you all so much. ❤️

In addition to Kelly, Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, who hosts “Kennedy” on Fox Business, officiated the ceremony, with Benson saying about his friend’s relationship with Wise, “She instantly nicknamed him ‘dream boat,’ which was hilarious.”

Writing about his wedding on Instagram, Benson warned his followers to get ready “for days and days of wedding pics.”

“I don’t even know where to begin,” he wrote. “A surreal, spectacular day in every way. The stuff of dreams.”
