Billy Boyd Cherishing Married Life

Better known as Pippin the hobbit in the movie 'Lord of the Rings,' Billy tied the knot with a ballet dancer and yoga instructor Ali Mckinnon in December 2010. Billy kept the wedding very small and intimate where thirty guests attended the actual service, and further one hundred thirty guests enjoyed the reception. 

Billy exchanged vows with Ali at the church Oran Mor just around the corner from their house, where the Lost stars Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan also attended the ceremony. 

Ali, who is the mother of Billy's 11-year-old son Jack William Boyd, first met Billy back in 2002 when the couple worked on a pantomime together. Jack also attended the wedding wearing a matching suit to his father, Billy.
