Anthony Mackie 'secretly wed'

Anthony Mackie is apparently a married man after tying the knot with his girlfriend Sheletta Chapital last year.

The 36-year-old actor has known his rumoured new wife, Sheletta Chapital, since they were both seven years old and they've had an on/off romance since attending school together.

Despite starting a family together the couple hadn't tied the knot until very recently, reports Page Six.

While filming his upcoming movie Our Brand Is Crisis alongside Sandra Bullock at the end of last year, Anthony apparently jetted out to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. It was there that he and Sheletta had a small ceremony at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, an insider claims.

“It was low-key and super-relaxed,” a guest told the publication. “They had a welcome dinner. We golfed and drank. They went on a honeymoon soon after.”

It was after the release of Anthony's hit movie 2008 The Hurt Locker that he and his partner rekindled their romance, as the actor was back in their hometown of New Orleans.

Speculation surrounding their relationship has been abuzz since earlier this year when Sheletta changed her name on Facebook to 'Chapital Mackie', but neither have spoken out to confirm the rumours.

Anthony is said to be ready to settle down back in New Orleans following trouble in New York. In February he was convicted of driving while impaired and sentenced to complete a drunk driving programme along with paying fines. While he didn't testify during his trial, Anthony did thank Judge Kevin McGrath for overlooking fair proceedings.

This followed his being arrested for driving while intoxicated in Harlem in 2013.

"Thank you, your honour, for the opportunity. Thank you for listening to the case and coming up with a fair conclusion.

“I wish everyone else had done the same," Anthony said following this year's case.
