Nerd-Celebrity Gossip-Like Fact Of Which I Was Previously Unaware

Richard "Selfish Gene" Dawkins is married to Lalla Ward, known to Doctor Who fans as "Romana #2"; they were introduced by mutual friend Douglas Adams.

(Not to imply that "Selfish Gene" is Richard Dawkins' nickname. That's probably a really old joke.)

Subsidiary fun facts from following Wikipedia links: Lalla Ward is, strictly speaking, the Honourable Sarah Ward, and has recorded audio books including Steven Pinker's The Language Instinct.
