On the road again... pregnancy after loss is whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done. As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience. When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have. You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.
Penn and Domino married in February 2017 at a courthouse ceremony in Brooklyn, followed by a small reception at Maison-May.
However, they had a larger celebration in June the same year at Domino’s mother’s home in Waccabuc, New York, complete with a huge tent in the back garden for guests to dance the night away.
Celebrity guests included Debra Messing (Will and Grace) and designer Zac Posen.

Happy birthday, Dom. A super-brief review of your invisible qualities: A truly radiant soul, you seem to spark alight almost everyone you meet, like a 99% success rate. It’s really impressive, and quite mysterious. You encourage others to be honest, and brave, and gentle, and expansive. Your great capacity for empathy is obvious, something anyone can get warm by like a glowing stove. Your desire to be of service to others is miraculous. It is in your DNA. In pictures as a very young child, you exude it—a great care and sweetness; an invitation. You make others happy by you. For me, it is a joy to witness you when you are happy. For you, I always hope to be a source of joy. I’m really glad we’re married.
Although the pair tend to keep their marriage out of the spotlight, Penn wrote a heartfelt message for his wife to mark her 36th birthday.
Describing her as “a truly radiant soul” on Instagram, Penn praised Domino: “You encourage others to be honest, and brave, and gentle, and expansive. Your great capacity for empathy is obvious, something anyone can get warm by like a glowing stove.”
He goes on to call her “desire” to be of service “miraculous” before adding: “You make others happy by you. For me, it is a joy to witness you when you are happy. For you, I always hope to be a source of joy. I’m really glad we’re married.”
Meanwhile, Domino makes her love for her man clear through loved-up social media posts.
Opening up about their “whirlwind” marriage to i-D in 2017, the mother of one said: “I got married and it was a bit of a whirlwind I wasn't expecting for the next phase for Penn and I. To be honest, it came as a huge surprise, and it happened after the record was made so it's been a very busy year.”
