brightcove.createExperiences(); Surprise! Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer are married!

The 25-year-old reality star and 27-year-old Marine Corps vet shared the happy news with Entertainment Tonight after speculation of their rekindled romance sparked.

“Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be,” they told ET. “We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!”

The on-again, off-again pair, who have a 5-month-old daughter, Sailor Grace, previously announced their engagement in March 2015 but called off their wedding days before walking down the aisle in May 2015.

“Hard work and God’s grace are the foundation of our new life together,” the couple added. “With the love and support of our family we know we can get through anything.”

Palin and Meyer are currently on their honeymoon.

On Tuesday, Meyer shared an Instagram photo of himself and his new bride from their honeymoon, showing off Palin’s sparkly diamond-lined wedding ring.

“On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences,” he captioned the post. “On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.”

On Wednesday, they shared an inspirational quote, saying “Happiness is not a state to arrive at but a manner of traveling.”

Recently, the couple have been spending time together, enjoying a family trip near the picturesque Alaskan mountains and sharing selfies while on a halibut fishing excursion.

“Life couldn’t be better,” Meyer captioned the shot.

Palin and Meyer currently have joint legal and physical custody of their child. In March, an Alaskan judge ruled Meyer, who lives in Kentucky, could visit his daughter twice a month for four consecutive days. Earlier this month, Palin agreed to have Dakota’s last name changed to Meyer, after the 27-year-old Marine Corps vet filed a court petition.

Previously, Palin’s lawyer told PEOPLE the two are “talking directly and just being parents without involving the lawyers.”

Last month, a judge ordered Palin’ former fiancé Levi Johnson to pay $61,915.20 in back child support for their 7-year-old son Tripp.
