The OC's Ryan has really come a long way since his days getting up to all sorts of scandal with his pretty posse of Marissa, Seth and Summer.

And after welcoming his first child 15 months ago, actor Ben McKenzie finally tied the knot with fiancé and fellow actor Morena Baccarin, according to People.

The couple, who made their romance official in 2015 after they were spotted getting very close at an Emmys afterparty, are reported to have had an intimate ceremony in Manhattan's Botanical Gardens, attended by just close family and friends.

Their nuptials come just seven months after getting engaged, and were made all the more special by it also being the bride's 38th bithday.

Morena has gushed about her new husband's caring nature in the past when she spoke about what it was like to be pregnant on the set of a huge TV series.

"It’s very nice to work with your significant other," she told People magazine, "especially when you’re pregnant because you know you’ll get some extra TLC and get taken care of."

While Morena already has a child with ex-husband Austin Chick, the arrival of daughter Frances Laiz Setta Schenkkan is the first for actor Ben.

“[Being a father] is something I’ve wanted for a long time,” he told People.
