BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 11 (UPI) -- Actor and comedian Martin Lawrence married longtime girlfriend Shamicka Gibbs at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Lawrence, 45, and Gibbs, 35, exchanged vows in his back yard Saturday, People magazine reported. The couple's daughters, Lyana, 9, and Ameria, 7, and Lawrence's daughter Jasmine, 14, were flower girls at the ceremony before 120 guests, including Hollywood stars Eddie Murphy and Denzel Washington.
