This couple is just full of surprises. They got secretly married last year. Their hush-hush wedding took place Oct. 30 and the True Blood star wore Carolina Herrera’s Chantilly lace mermaid gown.

The British-born Bell, who burst on the scene in the 2000 film Billy Elliot,  met Wood in 2005 when they starred in Green Day's "Wake Me Up When September Ends" music video.

They even got tattoos of each other’s first initial — she got a 'J' on her left ankle. After splitting in 2006, they reunited in the summer of 2011 around the time that Wood identified herself as bisexual on Twitter. 

Bell, who starred in last year's Man on a Ledge, proposed in early 2012. Wood was previously engaged to her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Goth rocker Marilyn Manson.

In November, Wood dismissed pregnancy rumors on Twitter: "Sorry to disappoint. But no baby on the way here.”

But today, she tweeted: "Remember when i said, 'No baby on the way here' Well, I didn't know there actually was!"
