Jodie Foster - who confirmed she is gay at the Golden Globe Awards last year following years of speculation - has tied the knot with her photographer girlfriend in a secret ceremony over the weekend after almost a year of dating.

A spokesperson for the Oscar-winning star confirmed the happy news to E! News.

The couple started dating last summer and sources at the time said: "It's pretty serious. They are totally in love."

There are no details about the wedding, but California - where the Panic Room actress lives - is among 17 US states, along with the District of Columbia, where gay marriage is legal.

The 51-year-old star previously dated Cydney Bernard, with whom she has two sons, Charles, 15, and 13-year-old Kit, for 20 years, but they ended their relationship in 2008.

She thanked her former partner while accepting a Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes in 2013, while addressing rumours about her sexuality for the first time.

She said: "This is not going to be a big coming-out speech tonight because I already did my coming out about a thousand years ago back in the stone age - in those very quaint days when a fragile girl would open up to trusted friends and family and co-workers and then gradually proudly to everyone who knew her."

We wish the newly married couple a lifetime of love and happiness together.
