Home life just got sweeter for Josh Lucas.

The actor, 40, quietly got married last weekend, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The bride was identified only as Jessica, with whom he attended the J. Edgar premiere in November. No other details were immediately available, but the rep also confirmed that the couple are expecting their first child together.

Lucas, who was previously romantically linked with Rachel McAdams, revealed in January that he was engaged, saying on The Tonight Show he popped the question after he had a scary encounter with a mountain lion while filming a movie in Big Sur, Calif.

Lucas told Jay Leno that after scaring the animal away by screaming, "I worked my way into the trailer and I got in and I decided at that moment that this woman was the woman for me."

Lucas, who starred in Sweet Home Alabama, most recently appeared in TV's The Firm.

The wedding was first reported on TooFab.com.
