Days of our Lives will make daytime history when Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis say "I do" this week.
Beginning Tuesday, April 1, and spanning three consecutive episodes, Days of our Lives will celebrate the groundbreaking wedding of Will Horton
and Sonny Kiriakis
, affectionately known to fans as "WilSon."
The wedding, the first between two men in DAYS history, is the culmination of a two-year story that began with Will coming to terms with his sexuality. From there, a DAYS spokesperson tells soap
that "the slow building romance of the beloved couple has captured the hearts and minds of viewers far and wide."
WilSon has been one of DAYS' most popular couples in recent years. The couple was named Favorite Couple in the 2013 soap
Dankies Awards, and they are again nominated this year
GLAAD has also recognized Days of our Lives' work, honoring the show earlier this year with a third GLAAD Award nomination.
You are cordially invited to the three-episode event, which promises to be filled with surprises -- including a surprise officiant. If you just can't wait, enjoy a sneak peek of the wedding below.
Days of our Lives airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for the time and channel in your area.
