According to The Sun, 31-year-old Joanne will take a short break from Downton filming to enjoy her honeymoon and settle into married life. Aww! Let's hope this hubby doesn't have a secret crazy wife out, like John Bates did!

Speaking of John Bates, Downton Abbey Season 3 started in the U.K. in September but we in the U.S. won't get to see it until January 6, 2013. But you can catch up on some spoilers here!
