*Remember we told you a few days ago that Actor Brian Austin Green and Actress Megan Fox were engaged?

Well, apparently they don’t like long engagements!

The marriage is the first for both. Green has an 8-year-old son with actress Vanessa Marcil formerly of General Hospital, Beverly Hills 90210 and Melrose Place.

Green is 36 and Fox is 24. They had a fairly large wedding but there was alot of security to keep fans and the media away if they somehow found the location out. All guests were told not to say anything about the time, place, date or location upon accepting their invitation.
