More than two years after the death of her husband, Talinda Bennington has remarried, to Los Angeles County firefighter Michael Fredman. The wedding took place on New Year's Eve in Hawaii, TMZ reports. Chester Bennington, who was the lead singer of Linkin Park, killed himself in July 2017. The Benningtons' three children attended the ceremony, which came on the anniversary of their parents' wedding in 2005.

Fredman has been a firefighter since 2016, per the Daily Mail. In announcing her relationship last fall, Talinda Bennington said, "To all Suicide Loss Survivors, you CAN be happy again." (More Chester Bennington stories.)
