The “Bill Nye the Science Guy” host married journalist and author Liza Mundy in May, People confirmed on Wednesday. The ceremony took place in the Smithsonian Institute’s Enid A. Haupt Garden in Washington, DC, and was presided over by “Star Trek” actor Robert Picardo.

Nye contacted Mundy via email after the book’s release, and the two began dating soon after.
