It's been a bad week for celebrity marriages with the shock split of Hollywood golden couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, but don't fret celeb watchers - according to reports, Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have tied the knot.

The couple of five years, who are parents to two young daughters, are famously guarded about their private lives, so the reports that they had a secret wedding earlier this year come as no surprise.

According to US showbiz magazine Us Weekly, the pair quietly wed in a ceremony attended by a small group of friends and family.

A source told the publication: "Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple. They are infatuated with each other."

The couple, who met when they starred alongside one another in the 2012 drama The Place Beyond the Pines, are parents to two-year-old Esmerelda and four-month-old Amada.

Speaking to at the Toronto Film Festival, Gosling gushed about his family, saying: "We couldn’t be happier. They are so sweet."
