An expectant Jessica Alba and Cash Warren made their first public appearance as husband and wife last night after secretly marrying in a low-key ceremony on Monday.
Jessica, who is notorious for her glum expression, was smiling at last as mingled at a charity event with her husband.
Just 24 hours earlier, the pair wed at the Beverly Hills courthouse, her spokesperson has confirmed.
Jessica was dressed casually in a flowing blue dress and a ponytail, and sources say that aside from courthouse staff, no one else was present at the ceremony.
“She looked happy but nervous,” a source told People magazine.
Jessica, 27, is expecting a daughter with Cash, 31, later this year.
She revealed earlier this year how they were planning a simple ceremony because she “hates” the fuss of weddings.
She said: “I am probably going to get my certificate at the City Council, throw a big party for the family and that’s about it.
“Everyone I know hates weddings.
“I’ve been to very big, beautiful and romantic weddings but I would rather just throw a big party.”
Her wedding was such a quiet affair that surprised even her brother, Josh Alba.
When contacted by US Weekly magazine with the news, he responded: “My sister!? I’m going to have to call her!”
The newlyweds met on the set of ‘The Fantastic Four’ in 2004 and got engaged in December after learning of the unplanned pregnancy.
Jessica has told how being pregnant has helped her slow down.
She said: “At the end of the day I am so tired I can’t function or speak and my eyes glaze over.
“But this pregnancy has seriously mellowed me out, which is nice.”
