Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and More Popular Celebrity Couples Who Got Married in Secret
Our favorite celebrities are now more accessible than ever. From their social media platforms to in-depth interviews in popular magazines, celebrities seem like close friends and superstars. However, some celebs like to keep their personal lives out of the spotlight, especially when their private lives are linked to other celebrity figures.
We all lived for Kerry Washington’s Olivia Pope on ABC’s hit series Scandal, but we never even knew Washington was dating until news broke that she got hitched to former NFL baller Nnamdi Asomugha. To this day, we have no details about Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ 2012 nuptials. It seems that every day more and more celeb couples are keeping their romances to themselves.
Here are 16 ultra-popular celeb couples who got married in secret.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively tied the knot on Sept. 9, 2012, in Charleston, South Carolina, and no one even saw it coming. The couple has never spoken about their nuptials.
Though they have been open about their love for one another, very little about their big day has been shared with the world. We do know that the 30-year-old wore a Marchesa gown to walk down the aisle.

The notoriously private couple who met on the set of the 2016’s The Light Between Oceans has tied the knot in an ultra-secret ceremony at the La Granja farmstead resort in Ibiza. Apparently, the lavish party took place over the course of three days.
The couple has appeared together on the red carpet while promoting their films and at award shows. However, they have never been open about their relationship. Last year, Fassbender told Entertainment Weekly, “Each to their own. I’m not going to talk about my private life with a total stranger unless I feel like I need to. Why would I? I don’t.” Vikander was quick to back up her partner’s statement saying, “I think we’ve made a clear statement that we keep certain things just between us. It was very easy to unite, but that’s quite personal.”

On Hollywood Today Live he said, “I’ve never said this on television before, but we are married. We got married on our 23rd [anniversary]. I met him on the dance floor at Limelight in 1994, on his birthday. So we got married on his birthday, the anniversary of when we met, this year.”
