While we love following celebrity couples through the wedding-planning process and finding out every detail about their upcoming celebrations, some stars go a more private route, shocking us all with their seemingly-out-of-the-blue marriage announcements! This time, Julia Stiles surprised us by revealing that she just got married to now-husband Preston J. Cook with an Instagram post.
Yesterday, Stiles posted a snapshot on the platform of her pregnant belly with Cook's hand on it—a hand donning a big wedding ring! You can also see her new band, and both rings appear to be rose gold. "Who doesn't love a shotgun wedding?" the actress captioned the photo. The couple seems to have tied the knot in Seattle, Washington, somewhere on the shoreline. Stiles wore an embroidered, short-sleeved dress by Tiffany Rose Maternity and jewelry by Reason + Madness. Cook dressed in formalwear, too.
News first broke of the couple's engagement back at the start of 2016, when it was revealed that Cook popped the question during the holiday season. Then, Stiles also announced the news on Instagram, writing "Best Christmas Ever!" That pretty picture was also taken by the ocean, and gave a close-up view of the star's engagement ring—a simple, unique, single-stone piece. Stiles and Cook met on the set of a movie. Cook was a camera assistant for the film.
This June, People confirmed that Stiles is pregnant with her first child. The new spouses plan to welcome their baby sometime later this year.
