Comedian and actor Tracy Morgan and his wife Megan Morgan turned a red carpet event into a very special date night on Saturday when they attended the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.  

Tracy was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance on Saturday Night Live which was his first TV gig since his near-death car crash in June 2014. The couple, who just celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary two weeks ago, arrived at the award show in style and very much in love.

While on the red carpet, Tracy explained how much the nomination meant to him and why bringing his wife Megan, whom he says is one of his biggest supporters, was the icing on the cake.

“She’s my strength, she’s my wisdom. That’s my lady, that’s my wife, and all of that is self-explanatory,” he shared.

Tracy revealed in a recent interview on the The View that his marriage to his wife motivated him throughout his recovery. “You know, I was in a wheelchair, and that was my motivation to work hard in the therapy so I could learn how to walk again and speak again all those things,” he told the hosts of The View. I wanted to walk my wife down the aisle. I didn’t want no cane.” 

Megan has been right by Tracy’s side ever since the accident proving that she’s here for the longhaul. There’s nothing like having a true rider on your arm.
