Talk about keeping a secret!

Billy Bob Thornton and long-time girlfriend Connie Angland tied the knot in October after 12 years of dating, the actor’s rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The Fargo actor, 59, wed Angland, 49, on Oct. 22 “at their home in Los Angeles during a private ceremony before family,” the rep says in a statement.

The recent Golden Globe-winner began dating Angland shortly after his 2003 divorce from Angelina Jolie.

In 2004, the couple welcomed their daughter Bella (Thornton’s fourth and Angland’s first child), who loves reading and making her dad dress up like a lady bug, according to Thornton.

This is Thornton’s sixth marriage.
