Martin took to Twitter on March 21 to share a photo of himself in a tuxedo with Gomez, who was dressed in a wedding dress and veil, holding his arm.

“Guess what just happened!” he captioned the photo. The photo immediately reminded fans of the 1991 film “Father of the Bride” and its 1995 sequel, “Father of the Bride Part II,” which featured Martin in the role of George Banks alongside Diane Keaton and Martin Short, who is also Gomez’s co-star and longtime friend. Short joined in on the nostalgia train and posed with Gomez in a follow-up photo.
People on social media were delighted by the wholesome interaction between the stars. There are no clues as to who Mabel (Gomez’s character) will be marrying in the show.

The singer and actress also posted pictures of herself wearing the bridal gown on her Instagram account, which recently surpassed 400 million followers. “I have no caption. Just a regular day at work,” she wrote.
The upcoming season of “Only Murders in the Building” is set to feature appearances from A-list celebrities like Meryl Streep, Ashley Park, Jesse Williams, and Paul Rudd, who previously appeared in Season 2.

Rudd expressed his excitement about working with Martin and Short, saying, “For a comedy fan like myself, (working with) Martin Short and Steve Martin, that’s Mount Rushmore. So to get to work with them was, I mean, I still kind of can’t believe it.”
Gomez shares a cute friendship with Martin and Short both on and off camera. She admitted that she was not sure how audiences were going to react to their odd-trio murder-mystery comedy, but was pleasantly “shocked” at the warm responses. In an interview with Deadline, Martin said he loved the idea of adding a woman of an entirely different generation to the mix and thought it was really fun.
Gomez talked about her pitch, adding that it led to a whole conversation about her obsession with true crime. “I had just come back from CrimeCon when I had the call and it just felt like it was something I wanted to do. They were all so lovely. And working with Steve and Marty would be a dream,” she shared.
