Actor Kevin McKidd announced via his website over the weekend that he has married girlfriend Arielle Goldrath - and the two are expecting a child.
McKidd, who plays Owen Hunt in the popular medical series Grey's Anatomy, revealed the joyous news in a heartfelt statement.

"Arielle and I are so happy to announce our marriage and new baby, who is soon to join our growing family," wrote the Scottish star as he shared a picture of himself and his new bride. "My kids are happy for us too and are looking forward to the arrival of their newest sibling!" McKidd went on to dish up some details on the secret wedding ceremony that took place earlier this year in Malibu, California. The ceremony was officiated by a rabbi. "Close friends and family came together with my Grey's family to share in our celebration day - an intimate, low key gathering culminating in a Scottish Ceilidh dance. There's much to be grateful for and we're thrilled for the adventures 2018 will bring us all." McKidd didn't reveal the guest list, but we love the thought of Jesse Williams doing a jig, don't you?
The 44-year-old actor first rose to prominence as Tommy in Trainspotting, alongside Ewan McGregor in 1996. Over the course of his career he has had many successful stints in both TV and film, but it's his role as the straight-talking surgeon Hunt that he's best known for. While his character may be unlucky in love, McKidd's second marriage comes a year after his divorce from Jane Parker was finalized. The couple married in 1999 and spent the best part of 20 years together, raising daughter Iona and son Joseph before separating in 2016.
It seems like 2018 is the year for celebrities ditching the big white weddings for low-key affairs. The news of McKidd and Goldrath's union comes after Amy Schumer tied the knot with fiancé Chris Fischer last month at her Malibu home. The Trainwreck star revealed the happy news a few days after the ceremony, sharing adorable snaps with her Instagram followers. Despite speculation, the actress and comedian insisted it wasn't a shotgun wedding.
