It wasn't quite The Five-Year Engagement, but Alison Brie and Dave Franco have officially tied the knot after more than four years together.

We don't yet know when or where, but representatives for the two actors confirmed to People Magazine on Monday that the couple flew under the radar and were married recently in a private ceremony.

Two actors who have carved out their own little niches, Franco and Brie recently co-starred together in Jeff Baena's comedy Little Hours, and James Franco's The Disaster Artist. Brie rose to prominence through her role as the adorkable Annie Edison in and Trudy Campbell in Mad Men, before going on to break into starring roles in film and the Netflix animated series , in which she voices Diane Nguyen.

And Dave Franco might not be as well known as his older brother, James Franco, but he's on his way to becoming an A-lister himself. After his breakthrough roles in Fright Night and 21 Jump Street he's gone to to star in numerous movies, including making up part of the ensemble cast in the Now You See Me franchise.

After meeting back in 2011 at New Orleans's Mardi Gras parade, Brie and Franco became engaged in August 2015 after more than three years of dating, a custom-made rose gold and diamond ring marking the occasion in true Hollywood style.

At the time, the details of their upcoming marriage were muddy, as they now remain, keeping in line with Brie and Franco's tendency to remain outside the spotlight as much as possible when it comes to their personal lives.

Discussing her role in How To Be Single last year, Brie told Yahoo! that the circumstances of their engagement were a little unusual, she never really saw herself as the type:

"I’m not very bridal, instinctually. Marriage never really interested me, I guess because I was very focused on my work. I wasn’t sure if I really saw the point to it."

So, what changed her mind about the prospect of getting married?

"I just met that person that I was like, 'Well, I’m really in love with you and would like to grow old with you.' I actually think it’s much more romantic when two people are like, 'Oh, I could go either way on marriage, but I want to marry you.'"

Congratulations to the happy couple!
