After 28 years, millions of albums sold, five Playboy covers, six seasons of reality TV and two children, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have finally decided to get hitched.

The KISS frontman and his Playmate girlfriend will wed Oct. 1 according to

Despite their nearly three-decade relationship, it was unclear whether the nuptials would happen. During the season 6 finale of their A&E show “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” Simmons proposed to his long-time love. But in true Hollywood fashion, they left it as a cliffhanger, not showing Tweed’s response.

But the couple’s spokesperson says, “I am happy to confirm that Gene and Shannon will be getting married in the near future.”

This should mark the end for Simmons, 62, and his notorious womanizing days. In a 2002 interview with NPR’s Terry Gross, Simmons stated he’s bedded approximately 4,600 women.

All the details of the event will emerge on the season premiere of “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” which returns Oct. 4.

If you have an extra 30 minutes, we highly recommend Simmons’ interview with Terry Gross. It’s somewhere between contentious, awkward and bizarre.
