Carlos Santana proposes, Martin Lawrence gets married
Four songs into his set at a concert Friday in Illinois, guitarist Carlos Santana proposed to girlfriend Cindy Blackman -- right after she finished her drum solo. She said yes, they kissed and the crowd went wild. It'll be the second marriage for Santana.
Then on Saturday, actor Martin Lawrence and longtime girlfriend Shamicka Gibbs were married in the backyard of their home in Beverly Hills, with the likes of Denzel Washington and Eddie Murphy among the 120 guests.
Their daughters Ameria, 7, and Lyana, 9, and his daughter Jasmine, 14, served as flower girls.
