Butch Patrick, the child star who played Eddie Munster on the wildly popular '60s show The Munsters, has tied the knot with his biggest fan — and was the only media outlet invited!

The haunted Halloween-themed commitment ceremony in Philadelphia on Sunday doubled as a celebration for Patrick’s 57th birthday.

The child star ‘married’ former Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader Donna McCall, who proudly showed off their commitment ring to a small group of family and friends after exchanging ‘vows’ in the backyard of their home.

“I choose my birthday, to celebrate my love for Donna, because I feel re-born when I’m with her,” a tearful Butch told the crowd.

It wasn’t a conventional ceremony, either.

Their ‘wedding’ cake was a double act: a life size Eddie Munster and the haunted home, 1313 Mockingbird Lane, while guests dined on BBQ ribs and chicken.

It was all tricks and tons of treats, too.

Gift bags were given to each guest containing everything from whoopee cushions, squirt guns to faux body parts.

It was exactly love at first bite, however.

When the young Butch was starring in the TV show, he exchanged letters with Donna.

As they grew older, the two fell out of touch, but Donna, 55, recently searched for Patrick online, found him and they exchanged phone numbers

In a fairytale love story, they met up at Pennsylvania’s DraculaCon II in May.

And in true showbiz style, at the end of Sunday’s festivities, the pair also drove off into the sunset in a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang replica car!
