Former 'Diff’rent Strokes' star Gary Coleman has revealed he got married on a Nevada mountain top last August to 22-year-old actress Shannon Price.

“Nobody was around but the minister, preacher, the videographers, the photographer, the helicopter pilot and us,” said 40-year-old Coleman, who played the role of Arnold in the popular series.

Price, who is 5ft 7in, said her 4ft 8in husband’s height was no problem: “That doesn’t really matter to me. He was 10 feet tall to me because he was sweet and I really liked his personality.”
