Julia Stiles Secretly Got Married Before Welcoming Her First Child
When you think of cute celebrity weddings, the, uh, shotgun variety probably doesn't come immediately to mind. Allow Julia Stiles to prove you wrong.
Stiles just announced via a photo on Instagram that she tied the knot with her fiancé/baby daddy, Preston J. Cook, in the most adorable of shotgun ceremonies.
In the pic, Stiles cradles her noticeable baby bump, which is clad in a gorgeous white dress with a lace overlay, while Cook rests his hand on top, his wedding ring on full display. In case the ring left any doubts about these two and their marital status, Stiles captioned the shot, "Who doesn't love a shotgun wedding?" There's a beach behind them and some beautiful, golden-hour light, and it looks like they had a gorgeous wedding.
Stiles and Cook have been engaged since Christmas Eve 2015, when he popped the question while they were enjoying a holiday vacay on Isla Grande. They were apparently enjoying a long engagement until last June, when Stiles announced they were expecting their first baby. Clearly they decided they'd better get down the aisle before the baby comes, because let's be honest, who has time for a wedding with a newborn to look after?
Stiles' rep told E! News their wedding was extremely intimate — only two friends were in attendance. They've also kept it under wraps for quite a while; the rep said they tied the knot over Labor Day Weekend.
Congrats to the newlyweds and soon-to-be new parents. It's an exciting time for Stiles and Cook to say the least.
