    Lily Tomlin is a married woman!

    The 74-year-old actress and comedian married her partner of 42 years Jane Wagner on New Year's Eve in a private ceremony in Los Angeles, Tomlin's rep confirms to E! News.

    "They're very happy," the rep adds of the newlyweds.

    The wedding news was first leaked in a Chicago Tribune Arts & Entertainment article posted by writer Liz Smith, a friend of the couple, on Jan. 3. In the article, which is about Bob Fosse, Smith lets it slip that Tomlin and Wagner finally got hitched.

    Smith writes, "And my longtime friends, Lily Tomlin and her love, the writer Jane Wagner, got married on the eve of 2014. ... My wish is that their happiness will be as great as their combined talents."

    Back in October, Tomlin opened up to E! News about planning a winter wedding. "We're talking about it," Tomlin said. "I think December, I'm off. I have no obligations at the moment."

    E! News also broke the news that Tomlin and Wagner were planning to get married back in August. "You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice," she said. "Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very, very happy about it."

    Congrats, you two!
