Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has secretly married her bodyguard, Dan Hayhurst.

The 53-year-old revealed she tied the knot at her Vancouver Island home on Christmas Eve, sharing photos from the intimate nuptials with DailyMailTV.

Pamela wore Hunter rain boots underneath a white vintage wedding dress and a “Princess Diana veil”.

“I’m exactly where I need to be — in the arms of a man who truly loves me,” she told the outlet.

Dan has been with Pamela 24/7 for the last year in lockdown in Canada.

“This one year together has felt like seven — like dog years,” she joked, adding she and her husband are a “natural fit.” Although the ceremony had no family or friends present, the actress noted that “everyone” is happy for them.

“I am in love. We were married Christmas Eve with both our families’ blessing, everyone we know is happy for us,” she said. “I was married on the property I bought from my grandparents 25 years ago, this is where my parents were married and they are still together. I feel like I’ve come full circle.”

When asked if they will take a honeymoon after COVID-19 travel restrictions ease, Pamela replied, “Every day is our honeymoon.”

This is the fourth, fifth or sixth time Pamela has walked down the aisle — depending on who you ask.

Last year, Pamela reportedly wed producer, Jon Peters, but they split less than two weeks later. The animal rights activist told the New York Times she and Jon never made the union official, though.

“It was just kind of a little moment. A moment that came and went, but there was no wedding, there was no marriage, there was no anything,” she maintained. “It’s like it never even happened. That sounds bizarre. But that’s it.”

Pamela also hit back at the amount of times people think she’s been married.

“I’ve only been married — I’ve been married three times. People think I’ve been married five times. I don’t know why. I’ve been married three times. I’ve been married to Tommy [Lee], I’ve been married to Bob [Ritchie, better known as Kid Rock] and to Rick [Salomon.] And that is it.”

(She did marry Rick twice, though.)

“Three marriages. I know that’s a lot,” she giggled, “but it’s less than five.”

During the same interview with the Times, the Playboy model said she “absolutely” could see herself getting married again.

“Just one more time. Just one more time, please, God,” she said. “One more time only. Only!”

Looks like she got her wish — assuming the newlyweds file paper work this time.
