Glee star ties the knot

Glee star ties the knot

Matthew Morrison has got married.

The 'Glee' actor tied the knot with his longterm girlfriend Renee Puente in an intimate ceremony in Hawaii in front of just 50 close

friends and family on Saturday, according to PEOPLE.com.

After the service, Renee, 31, gave Matthew, 35, a special Hula performance at the reception before the hunk joined her on the floor for couple's version.

The newly-weds, who have been dating since 2011, then rounded up their romantic performances with a duet of Laura Benanti's 'Starry Eyed/Video Games.'

The news the loved-up pair have got hitched comes as a surprise to fans at Matthew - who plays teacher Will Schuester in the comedy drama - previously predicted he wouldn't marry Renee until next year.

He said in 2013: "It's [the wedding] is going good. We're a little way off. Probably not until like 2015, so we're just taking our time. But we're well into it."

Meanwhile, it seems children could be next on the list for the duo, who got engaged in June last year, as Matthew has always wanted a family.

He said: "I've always wanted to have children, but when the holidays are here and I'm around kids more, I'm like; do I really want a kid?

"It's great to be able to enjoy them and then I'm like, OK, bye!

Although when I'm 80 years old, I'm going to want kids and grandkids.

That would be awesome."
