Morgan: I want to walk down the aisle

Tracy Morgan has had “to go hard with therapy” since his serious car crash last year.

The former 30 Rock actor was involved in a serious car crash in June last year which saw the death of his friend James McNair. Tracy was in a coma for two weeks and suffered multiple broken bones which has left him requiring a wheelchair, but the star is determined to be on his feet for his nuptials to fiancée Megan Wollover.

“I don't want to walk my wife down the aisle with a cane or in a wheelchair. So I had to go hard with the therapy,” he told People Magazine. “I had to get better. There was no ifs, ands or buts about it."

Tracy'S therapy involves learning how to sit, stand and walk. The 46-year-old has found it tough going, but his wedding has been the best incentive.

"I am working out now, but physical therapy isn't easy," he added. "It's a lot of ooch-ing and lot of ouching and screaming, but I am determined."

The couple’s nuptials are expected to take place in August. Tracy admits that as soon as he woke from his coma, he wanted to wed the 28-year-old immediately but realised “everything [comes] in time”.

The couple have 23-month-old daughter Maven together in addition to Tracy’s three sons from his first marriage to his high school sweetheart which lasted for 23 years.

After a year from hell, the star is focused on the future and being on the mend with his new wife by his side.

“Happiness is simply having something to look forward to," he smiled. "I look forward to being married, and I'm really happy."
