Surprise – Noah Wyle is a married man.
The Falling Skies star, 43, wed Sara Wells earlier this month at their farm in Santa Barbara, he announced Tuesday on The View.
“It was beautiful. It was great. It was a very small ceremony – we have this little farm in California,” Wyle said.
“We got married on the ranch in front of the barn and then took a honeymoon. We just got back from Paris, which was incredible. Very romantic!”
He adds, “I love to walk in foreign cities and get lost and then find my way back and the jet-lag allowed us to do that. It’s such a nightlife town anyway, and the sun doesn’t go down until 10 o’clock this time of year so we just strolled around.”
Wyle and Wells, an actress and children’s entertainer, began dating in 2011. The actor was previously married to makeup artist Tracy Warbin Wyle, from whom he split in 2009. They have two children, son Owen, 11, and daughter Auden, 8½.
