So would you call this a February-October romance?
Newly married “Lost” star Doug Hutchinson and his child bride are defending their relationship in light of their age difference.
Which would be 35 years.
Last month, Hutchinson, 51, married a 16-year-old aspiring country singer and former beauty queen named Courtney Alexis Stodden.
“We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial,” the couple told E! News via their rep. “But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.”

Hutchinson, who has also appeared in “The Green Mile” and “The X-Files” married Stodden on May 20 in a ceremony in Las Vegas.
Stodden, whose website features photos of her naked and wrapped in an American flag on a beach, is a former Miss Washington USA contestant.
The aspiring singer, who looks rather, ahem, mature for her age, has written songs like “Car Candy” and “Hurting People.”
In one of her videos, “Don’t Put It On Me,” she appears to be holding a yard glass, most often used for drinking alcohol.
