Anna Faris, in the latest episode of her podcast, has shocked listeners by declaring that she is now married to Michael Barrett.
The reveal came during a conversation with Top Chef’s Gail Simmons about drifting away from friends after starting a relationship.
During the chat, Faris said: “My fiancé is right… well he’s now my husband. Yes, we eloped. I’m sorry, honey, I just blurted that out. I can’t say fiancé anymore.”
Detailing the nature of the wedding, Faris said “It was at a local courthouse up in Washington State. It was great.”
The actor also confirmed that they were married without the knowledge of their families.
“We saw my family and it kind of slipped out the same way. My aunt asked me, ‘You are going to be a stepmom. How are you feeling about that?’ and I said, ‘Actually I am a stepmom as of like four days ago, but it was great’.”
Answering why the couple decided to marry in secret, Faris reflected: “Everything about it just felt right.”
It is her second marriage after being wedded to actor Chris Pratt for nine years before divorcing in 2018.
