Exclusive! '30 Rock's Katrina Bowden On Marrying Childhood Love

'30 Rock's Katrina Bowden On Marrying Childhood Love

The newly minted Mrs. Ben Jorgensen tells YourTango about life after 'I do.'

Gorgeous, down-to-earth, and incredibly sweet Katrina Bowden has played Tina Fey's ditzy assistant on 30 Rock and Chris Klein's hot girlfriend in American Reunion, but her latest role involves a wedding dress, a ring and a happily-ever-after, sans cinematography. 

Sorry, fellas. Esquire Magazine's 2011 "Sexiest Woman Alive" is officially off the market. Earlier this summer, the 24 year old married longtime love musician Ben Jorgensen at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York in front of 127 guests. After a year and a half engagement, Katrina tells YourTango at a party for bebe's new ad campaign that little has changed since walking down the aisle. "It's wonderful—not a whole lot different than engaged life and boyfriend and girlfriend life, but it's just great. I love being married to him."

Now husband and wife, Katrina was just 16 when she first felt the butterflies for Ben, who's six years her senior. "We try to do date nights, like going out to nice dinners together," Katrina gushed about keeping the romance alive. "We just moved into a new apartment. A couple of weekends ago, we left all the mess of unpacking at home and went out to a nice romantic dinner at Lure Fishbar [in New York City]."

The blonde beauty credits her mom for giving her the best advice when it comes to matters of the heart. "My mom always told me, 'Whatever happens, will happen' or 'Whatever is supposed to happen, will happen.' I've learned you'll know when you find the right person. When I found the right person, I knew it immediately."

We see you blushing, Ben.
