Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz tied the knot in a low-key secret wedding ceremony in New York last Wednesday in front of just four guests — Weisz’s five-year-old son Henry from her relationship with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, Craig’s 18-year-old daughter Ella from his first marriage, and two family friends.
‘Daniel and Rachel insisted on having a small, quiet wedding. They are madly in love and couldn’t wait to be husband and wife – but they wanted minimum fuss,’ a source said.
The Mummy star Rachel, 41, started dating Craig, 43, in November last year after she split from her long-term partner and the father of her son, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, while Craig reportedly broke off his engagement to longtime girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell before the two got together.
The pair has been friends for years but allegedly fell for each other after they both starred as husband and wife in the forthcoming thriller Dream House. It seemed that they have taken the roles to heart.
They kept their romance a secret but it was exposed after they spent Christmas together, and then in May they were spotted together in Paris.
Craig rose to fame in 2006 when he became the sixth actor to play Bond in the film franchise and will star in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Weisz won an Academy Award for “The Constant Gardener” and starred in “The Mummy.”
Robin Baun of Slate PR, which represents Craig, said Saturday that the actor and Weisz have married. She did not offer any details.
This is the first marriage for Weisz and the second for the James Bond star.
