Drake Bell Finally Confirms He's Been Secretly Married And Is A Dad Following His Child Endangerment Arrest!
After being caught wearing a ring on THAT finger, Drake Bell took to social media to finally confirm that he is indeed married! Check out what he had to say!
Drake Bell was previously photographed with his partner, Janet Von Schmeling, and a baby stroller, visiting Disneyland.
This happened late last month and sparked serious marriage rumors since the man had a mysterious band on his wedding finger.
So, days later, the actor took to his Twitter account to not only confirm that he is a married man now but that he is also a father!
'In response to various rumors that are incorrect, I've been married for almost 3 years, and we're blessed to be the parents of a wonderful son. Thank you very much to all of my fans around the world for your good wishes,' he wrote, in Spanish.
The news of his secret marriage comes not too long after the actor was accused of child endangerment, to which he pleaded guilty during a virtual court appearance last month.
Before this, right after his arrest, he pleaded not guilty but then changed his plea to settle for a much more advantageous plea deal.
As for what actually happened for him to receive these charges, it has been reported that he engaged in some inappropriate conversations via chat, with an underage girl, no older than 15 years old.
The chatting between the two would sometimes turn sexual, as per local NBC affiliate KXAN.
In the meantime, the Drake and Josh's actor's legal representative, Ian Friedman, told People magazine right after the court hearing that: 'All questions about this case will be answered at sentencing, including why Mr. Bell chose to enter his plea.'
At this point in time, Drake is still waiting for his sentencing in his case but it's right around the corner since it's been scheduled for July 12!
