They’ve been engaged for over three years and now it’s finally official—Jennifer Aniston, 46, and Justin Theroux, 43, are married! The celebrity couple hosted a party on August 5 at their Bel Air home for what everyone thought was Theroux’s surprise 44th birthday party.
Instead, the party turned out to be a surprise wedding, and Aniston and Theroux ended up tying the knot in front of over 70 guests, including A-list names like Howard Stern, Lisa Kudrow, Sia, Chelsea Handler, Ellen DeGeneres, John Krasinski, and Emily Blunt. Pictures posted on TMZ show a beautifully decorated backyard, what looks like a Muppets-inspired wedding cake being delivered, and a pastor (presumably) carrying a Bible.
According to TMZ, Aniston and Theroux went above and beyond to make sure their wedding remained a surprise for their unsuspecting guests. They reportedly built a shed to hide all of the supplies for the event and even confiscated their staff’s phones for the week leading up to the big day. However, despite their efforts to keep the wedding under wraps, Aniston has said in the past that people had been expecting a surprise wedding—they just didn’t know when. “Our friends Sacha [Baron Cohen] and Isla [Fisher] showed up for four parties, four little gatherings, about a year ago, in beautiful wedding wear,” Aniston said during her recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Even DeGeneres admitted that she and her wife, Portia de Rossi, made sure to attend all of Aniston and Theroux’s parties, just in case.
All signs point to a successful secret wedding; however, the couple has yet to confirm that they are in fact officially married now. Assuming the wedding news is true, this will be Theroux’s first marriage and Aniston’s second. She famously divorced her first husband, Brad Pitt, after he was rumored to be having an affair with his now-wife Angelina Jolie.
