Freida Pinto has revealed that she and her fiancé Cory Tran secretly tied the knot while they were in lockdown amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Slumdog Millionaire actress made an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Wednesday where Clarkson asked how the wedding planning was going.

Pinto responded: "We're already married! It's a very romantic story if you must know. When we got engaged we thought we'd have this most magical wedding.

"But then Covid happened and it's still happening and we just realized we'd be planning this for the rest of our lives and never doing it. So we decided one day to go to the Honda Center in Anaheim [in California].

"Honestly, I have to say if any of you have planned a wedding, you probably know this, I do not want stomach ulcers from planning my own wedding."

She added: "This was perfect! We got married and then we got to go home and take an afternoon nap."

The Hollywood star announced her engagement to photographer Tran in November 2019.

In an emotional post to Instagram, she wrote: ''It all makes sense now.

"Life makes sense, the world makes sense, the past tears and trials make sense, what wise old lovers said about love makes sense, where I am makes sense and where I want to go completely makes sense.''

She added: ''You my love are just the most beautiful creation to have ever walked into my life. And you are here to stay. Well, I am making you stay. Ha! All my love with all my heart."

In June this year, the couple revealed they are expecting a baby. Pinto wrote on her Instagram, "Baby Tran, coming this Fall!"
