Actor Billy Bob Thornton is officially off the market after secretly marrying his longtime girlfriend last year (14).

The Bad Santa star, 59, exchanged vows with Connie Angland, his girlfriend of over 12 years, on 22 October (14).

A representative for Thornton tells, "(They wed) at their home in Los Angeles during a private ceremony before family."

The couple is parents to daughter Bella, 10.

Angland, 49, is Thornton's sixth wife - they began dating shortly after the actor finalised his divorce from Angelina Jolie in 2003.

He also has three other children from his earlier marriages.
