Anna Farris has confirmed she is married to Michael Barrett, not long after he was spotted wearing a simple wedding band during dinner with the star on Tuesday evening.
The Mom actress, 44, revealed she and Barrett recently eloped with a courthouse marriage while talking to Top Chef’s Gail Simmons on her Unfiltered podcast.
The Scary Movie star first confirmed the engagement during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in February 2020.

On Tuesday Anna and Michael were seen enjoying a cozy dinner with her son Jack, eight, at Tallula’s Mexican restaurant in Santa Monica.
Barrett sported a simple wedding band, while Anna was still proudly sporting her yellow cushion-cut diamond engagement ring.
The stunning ring is estimated to be ‘worth somewhere between $25,000-$50,000,’ according to Brides.
Anna shares son Jack with ex-husband Chris Pratt.
Anna and the 42-year-old Marvel star famously split in August 2017 after eight years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in October 2018, as reported by TMZ.
Pratt went on to date Arnold Schwarzenegger’s daughter Katherine, who he would propose to in January 2019.

‘Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you,’ Chris wrote in an Instagram post confirming the proposal.
The pair wed on June 8, 2019 and welcomed their first child together, daughter Lyla, in August 2020.
Faris first met Barrett on set of her 2018 comedy flick Overboard. The pair reportedly started dating sometime in 2017.
They were first pictured out together in September 2016, with a source divulging to People at the time that Anna had been ‘hanging out with Michael for weeks’ and had just ‘started seeing each other more frequently.’
Anna and Michael have kept their relationship extremely private.

It was Faris’ Mom costar Allison Janney who first spilled the beans on the pair’s secret engagement.
‘They’ve been engaged for a long time,’ revealed Janney in an interview with Us Weekly in January 2020. ‘I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know! So, I celebrated with them a long time ago.’
She noted to the outlet that she had no knowledge of the proposal until she ‘saw the ring one day’ on set of her and Anna’s now-canceled CBS sitcom.
‘I went into her room to work on lines, and then I was like, “What is that ring on your finger?” she recalled.
‘I think she was waiting for everyone to notice. “Oh, that’s it,” and then, yeah, it was fun.’
