Notoriously private actor Jeremy Renner is now a married man. The The Bourne Legacy star learned a thing or two from his role as black ops character Aaron Cross because he managed to tie the knot with girlfriend Sonni Pacheco, in a top secret ceremony, without the media's knowledge.

Renner revealed the news to Capitol File, when he referred to Pacheco as his wife.

"I have tried to protect my family's privacy, my wife's privacy. I don't need her to get hammered with my life," Renner said.

And when asked if he is actually married, Renner replied with a simple, "Yes."

While no further details are available on Renner's wedding ceremony, he revealed that the news was kept a secret because he finds being followed annoying.

"It's annoying being followed when I'm with my family," the Hurt Locker actor said. "It's not just me — everyone [in Hollywood] has to deal with that. I've been talked about a whole lot, because the less I put out there, the less people know, and it makes it interesting, I assume."

Renner, however, was happy to share other information about his private life and how much he is loving being a father to his daughter, Ava Berlin Renner, who was born in March 2013.

"It's the best thing I have ever done — doing it later on in life. By then I achieved a lot of things that I wanted to achieve; I'm so blessed for that. Now I can really spend time with family. The only thing I think about when I'm not with my baby is, 'How do I get to my baby?' I need to get to her, and I'm very miserable when I don't see her. I really love being a father," he said.

"The only that has changed is my perspective on things. I still work, probably even more. It used to be all for myself so I'm not old and broke. All these things I still do, but I do it now for the future of my baby, and if it gets in the way of her well-being, then I stop," the Oscar nominee explained. "I can't wait for her to get older, but I really enjoy her now. She's the greatest. She's into her sticker phase... As a father, I'm going to make it very difficult for her to find a man."
