The 35-year-old actor and Eva, 42, started dating after co-starring in The Place Beyond The Pines in 2012, and they are now proud parents to two young daughters.

Now, multiple sources tell Us Weekly magazine the couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony among a small group of friends and family.

“Eva and Ryan have always felt like a married couple,” one insider says. “They are infatuated with each other.”

Representatives for the famously private pair have yet to respond to requests for a comment on the marriage report.

It’s not the first time Ryan and Eva have faced reports of a secret wedding. Earlier this year (16), it was claimed the couple had married in June (16), following the birth of their daughter Amada in April (16).

According to America’s OK! magazine, the stars held the ceremony at their home in the Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, and kept their big day low key.

“The buzz is that they invited fewer than 30 people and told everyone they were coming to a backyard party,” a source told the publication in July (16). “Of course, anyone there was sworn to secrecy!”

Prior to meeting Ryan, Eva had some very definite ideas about marriage, labelling the tradition “archaic”.

“I love the idea of a union – that’s all very beautiful,” she told talk show host Chelsea Handler in 2011. “But I think, you know, it’s a very old-fashioned, archaic kind of thing. We did it for land originally. How unromantic is that?”

Meanwhile, Ryan was also less than enthused about the prospect of exchanging vows before he started dating Eva, telling MTV News: “It depends on the lady. You have to meet somebody that you feel like you can go down that road with. I don’t want to just do it arbitrarily to say that I did.”
