The “one-time escort who helped sock it to former Gov. Eliot Spitzer” married the “construction honcho” in a private ceremony in a penthouse atop the Four Seasons Hotel George V, the newspaper reported, citing confidential sources.
Red Bank Councilman Ed Zipprich wed his longtime partner J.P. Nicolaides in one of the first-day marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples early Monday, the website PolitickerNJ reports.
The anonymous columnist reports that he or she “noticed colleagues admiring the diamond sparkler on [Beck’s] left hand after the State of the State address Tuesday.”
Beck told the Sledger that her fiancé, restaurateur Dan Shields, proposed in October, and that the couple have kept their engagement “low-key.”
A 44-year-old Republican, Beck lives in Red Bank with her dog, Scout, according to her online bio. She served two terms on the borough council before winning a seat in the state Assembly in 2005. Two years later, she won the 12th-district spot in the state Senate.
