Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds’ hush-hush ceremony may have shocked fans, but it came as no surprise to their closest friends.

“It is exactly what she wanted,” a pal of the couple tells OK!. “This is the happiest I’ve seen her.”

The couple said their “I dos” at a remote retreat outside of 31-year-old Ryan’s hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia, on Sept. 27, less than six months after Scarlett, 23, publicly debuted her diamond solitaire engagement ring.

In keeping with the low-key duo’s private personalities, the wedding included a handful of close friends and family, including Scarlett’s twin brother, Hunter, and her mother, Melanie Sloan.

While Scarlett plays a free-spirited romantic in her recent hit Vicky Cristina Barcelona, in real life, “I believe in finding a soulmate,” she told Cosmopolitan magazine.

Meanwhile, Ryan — whose upcoming movie is aptly called The Proposal — can’t wait for their next life-changing event: parenthood.

 

“I feel like I need to fulfill the genetic paradigm, the destiny of it,” he tells OK!. “It definitely appeals to me.”

 

Congratulations!
