Drescher shared the news on Twitter on Sunday with a sweet selfie.

Ayyadurai, who holds the patent for inventing email, met Drescher a year ago at an event hosted by Deepak Chopra. "Fran heard my talk and we fell in love, and we've been together since that talk," he told the Huffington Post. "Every day is a celebration with Fran. Every day is almost a romantic hangout with her. We're always laughing, always enjoying ourselves."

This is the second marriage for The Nanny actress. She was married to Peter Marc Jacobson for 21 years, but divorced him in 1999. Jacobson, who is also Drescher's producing partner, later came out as gay.

This is a big year for celebrity weddings. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt even tied the knot and shared their wedding photos with the world. Check out the actress' wedding dress, below:
