Reggie the Alligator has been a star attraction at the Los Angeles Zoo, but now he has a co-star: Tina the Alligator.

It's quite a change from Reggie's bachelor days when he was found running wild in Lake Machado in Harbor City.

His life on the lamb made him a star, but 12 years later, it looks like it's time for him to settle down.

"We had some rough spots in the beginning where there was a little bit of aggression, but they're getting along great now," said Ian Recchio, the curator of reptiles for the Los Angeles Zoo.

In the video player above, ABC7's John Gregory gives us a peek at the budding relationship between Reggie and Tina.
