Brooke Burke Has Best Reason Ever to Get Hitched

Brooke Burke and David Charvet have been together for years, they have two children together and have been engaged since 2006, but it was someone else who finally made the Dancing With the Stars host tie the knot with her Baywatch hottie.

After all, what's the point? The two have been all but married for years now. They have two kids together: Rain, 4, and Shaya, 3. And she has two daughters (Neriah, 11, and Sierra Sky, 9) from her marriage to Extreme Makeover plastic surgeon Garth Fisher.

And while love and commitment have nothing to do with marriage (one can easily exist without the other), someone else disagreed.


It was Rain, their daughter, who told Burke, "I want you to be a Charvet too mommy."

Those words would be enough for anyone, no? Sure, we can talk a big game about marriage and how it makes no difference to children and their future and all of that will be true. But when your baby tells you she wants it, why not just do it?

It is interesting she asked. Maybe she felt unstable not sharing her last name with her mom. Or maybe she just wanted to see her mom and dad be married like her friend's parents. Regardless of the reason, if they were looking for an excuse, they had the best one ever.

Anyone who has been through a divorce might be gun shy to make that commitment a second time and given they had a family, maybe it seemed superfluous, but Rain's innocent request got the ball rolling. Soon after, Burke wrote on her blog:

Boyfriend sounds sexy, and fun. Fiancé has been the proper title for 4 years now, but it seems insignificant. But HUSBAND, now that is serious!!! I kinda like the sound of it.

It makes sense, really and is one of the best reasons to get married I've ever heard. Put simply: Their daughter wanted them to!

Congratulations to the happy couple.
