It's the holidays and people are in the mood to share good news, so here's some good news for actor Michael Ealy — of Common Law, The Good Wife, Think Like a Man and Barbershop, among others — but bad news for anyone who wanted him to stay on the market.

According to People, Michael, 39, married his longtime girlfriend Khatira Rafiqzada, 31, back in October, after almost four years of dating.

His rep told People, "Michael has always been a private guy, and he wanted to enjoy his time as a newlywed with his wife privately." But now that time has passed and the holidays are here, the rep continued, "he wanted to share the news with his fans that he is married and very happy."

Aww! That's a nice way to do it — keep it special for yourselves for a while, before sharing it with anyone outside your family and friends. Congrats!
