Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas have tied the knot!

On May 17, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the This Is Us actor, 44, and his former The Young and the Restless costar, 31, were "recently" married.

The pair have kept their relationship relatively private, sharing just a few public milestones since they were first romantically linked last June. A source told PEOPLE at the time that the couple had been "spending a lot of time at his house."

They became Instagram official on New Year's Eve, each posting a sweet photo with the other. "Sayonara 2020, it's been real. Happy New Year from our quarantine den to yours ❤️" Pernas wrote at the time.

Pernas and Hartley first sparked marriage rumors earlier this month when they were spotted on the beach in Malibu each wearing bands on their left hand, as seen in photos obtained by Page Six.

Here's a detailed look at the couple's relationship timeline:

April 2015

Pernas joined The Young and the Restless in 2015, and played Hartley's on-screen love interest for about a year. Hartley departed the show in 2016, joining the cast of This Is Us. Pernas left TYATR that same year, and went on to appear in series Jane the Virgin, The Brave and Blood & Treasure.

June 2020

A source told PEOPLE in June 2020 that Hartley and Pernas had "been dating for several weeks." The source added that new couple was "spending a lot of time at his house."

"They look very happy," the insider said. They were first linked a week earlier, when TMZ published photos of the pair sharing a kiss outside a Los Angeles doctor's office.

"She was very much a doting girlfriend. She dropped him off in the morning and returned to pick him up a few hours later," the source told PEOPLE of the moment. "She helped him into the car and had a cold drink for him. They returned to his house and were there the whole weekend together."

August 2020

The pair teased their romance on social media for the first time nearly three months after they were first linked.

Pernas shared a photo on her Instagram Story of a man leaning on a marble countertop, holding a cigar and an iced beverage in his hands: "Easy like Sunday mornin,'" she captioned the picture.

Hours later, Hartley posted a snap of himself sitting in a pool and holding a dog. Atop the photo, he wrote a nearly identical caption to the one written on Pernas' post.

"Paisley like Sunday mornin,'" the text on Hartley's Instagram Story stated.

One Day Later

The day after making their red carpet debut, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that the pair had "recently" tied the knot.

Their wedding comes just a few months after Hartley and his ex-wife Chrishell Stause settled their divorce and had a judge sign off on the documents on Feb. 8. Hartley suddenly filed for divorce in November 2019.

Speaking on Radio Andy in October 2020, the actor shared that he was "really happy with where I am," adding that he planned to continue keeping his personal life quite private.

"I'm healthy, I'm safe. I'm, I mean, all of those things. So, I'm very thankful," he continued, adding that while he doesn't necessarily mind the attention on his personal life, he won't feed into it.

"I've also sort of always had this view that I will have a public life, but I will be very private about my personal affairs."
