Jeffrey Dean Morgan Marries Long-term Girlfriend Hilarie Burton

The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan officially married his girlfriend, former One Tree Hill actress in a private ceremony.

Tying the Knot

Everybody thought that the couple tied the knot back in 2014, however they did not legally get married until last Sunday, October 6.

The actress surprised fans by announcing the news on her social media.

“This past weekend was the best in my entire life. There are dozens of thank yous I need to make. So bear with me over the next week as I gush over the amazing group of people who gave us this beautiful moment. But before we do any of that, Jeff and I just want to put it out there that WE GOT MARRIED! For real.” Burton wrote.

She also said that the reports about them being married were not true and that this was actually the first time they said “I do”:

“We’ve lived as husband and wife for a decade. We’ve built a family, and a farm and found our community.

For years, publications have reported that we got married in 2014 or 2015 and that I’ve been married and divorced before. All untrue. But WE knew our truth. So it felt silly to try and correct anything.”

Joyous Jeffrey

The 53-year-old television actor also shared the news in an Instagram post of his own, saying:

“I’d say words… but there aren’t any. Mrs Morgan…. I love you. Thank you for making me the luckiest man in the world,” he wrote as he shared a photo of him with his wife gazing over the side of a building.

He also mentioned that the intimate ceremony was performed by Jensen Ackles, his Supernatural costar and on-screen son, who introduced Morgan to Burton, and by his Walking Dead costar Norman Reedus.

Jeffrey has previously been married to actress Anya Longwell between 1992 and 2003 – while Hilarie was thought to have been married to Ian Prange between 2004 and 2009.

The New York-based couple have been together since 2009 and have a son Augustus Morgan, nine, and daughter George Victoria Morgan, one.
