Mena Suvari is living out her very own Hallmark movie. The American Beauty actress confirmed on Sunday, October 21, that she had secretly married her boyfriend of two years, Michael Hope.
The couple first met on the set of 2016 Hallmark movie I’ll Be Home for Christmas, and they eventually kept their marriage a secret for several months. The bride starred in the made for television film while her husband worked in the art department. (It was Suvari’s third time walking down the aisle after her previous marriages to Robert Brinkmann and Simone Sestito.)
“It’s great. I’m really happy. We’re happy,” Suvari told Us Weekly at a benefit. “Third time’s a charm!”

It was believed that the pair exchanged vows this summer after the American Pie star posted a photo with her husband of the two walking hand-in-hand down a dirt path. “Forever finally found us…” Suvari wrote, leaving fans to speculate whether the two had quietly tied wed.
“It was very intimate. It was very beautiful,” Suvari confirmed of the nuptials. “I had my closest friends with me. It was very meaningful. After all these years, sort of having ups and downs, it’s very nice just being settled, especially at this point in my life.”
Not much is known about Hope, but Suvari shared a few characteristics at the event. “He’s a really great guy,” she said. “I got me a Canadian: Old school, really considerate, old-fashioned. I’m like, ‘Who are you?'”
