The 29-year-old actress posted a photo of the happy couple at the Ventura County Courthouse in California.

“Cooper and I are excited to share that we legally married,” she captioned the photo, adding, “I am proud to stand by your side, as your partner, your friend, and your wife.”

The actress has already changed her last name on the social media platform to Hefner.

Cooper also shared the same photo of the pair at the courthouse, saying, “Scarlett and I have made it officially legal and the two of us could not be happier. Cheers to a life full of love, happiness, adventure, and great purpose, Mrs. Hefner.”

A Big Wedding Celebration in the Works

Both of them also added that they will be planning a wedding ceremony to celebrate with friends and family.

Even though they have tied the knot officially, I don’t know that the happy couple will be searching for the safest SUVs to haul kids around in just yet. If the length of their engagement is any indication, anyway.

The couple got engaged when Cooper proposed in August of 2015, which means they took a whole 4 years to make it official. At the time, they also shared that news on Instagram, showing off Scarlett’s stunning yellow diamond ring.

Scarlett went on to pose nude in Playboy as part of the March/April 2017 issue.

Cooper is Hugh Hefner’s youngest son, and his mother is Kimberley Conrad, who became Playmate of the Year in 1989. He was the chief creative officer of Playboy Enterprises, but recently left the company to launch his own media brand, the Hefner Media Corporation.
