Sex and the City’s scene stealing GBF Mario Cantone has married his long-time partner.

The boyish looking Cantone, who’s actually 51, made the announcement during an appearance on ABC’s The View Friday, saying he recently wed Jerry Dixon, his partner of 20-years.

Cantone says he and Dixon  -- a  musical theater director  --  tied the knot after New York legalized same-sex marriage back in June.

"I got married for the same reasons you did," Cantone told Joy Behar, who also recently wed her long-time partner Steve.  "We're older now. We've been together 20 years. After 20 years you're like, 'Thanks for the anti-climactic honeymoon government!' "

Cantone also dropped this interesting nugget -- the ceremony was performed by pastor Jay Bakker, the son of disgraced Rev. James Bakker and the late Tammy Faye Bakker Messner.

Added Cantone:  "It was beautiful, just my family there. I love him. He's a good man."
