Surprise — this wildcat is taken!
Ashley Tisdale secretly married fiance Christopher French on Monday, Sept. 8, the actress confirmed via Instagram. "Best day of my life!" she gushed, alongside a snapshot with her new husband. "Introducing Mr and Mrs French Sept 8, 2014."
Tisdale, 29, and musician French got engaged last August on the 103rd floor of the Empire State Building in NYC. "He had been planning on it for awhile," a source told Us at the time. "She knew it was coming but she is so happy!"
Indeed, Tisdale was over the moon. "Best night of my life," the Disney alum tweeted. "We're on top of the world." That same month, the actress showed off her engagement ring on the red carpet at the 2013 InStyle Summer Soiree in West Hollywood on Aug. 14.
The new spouses first met in December 2012 and via mutual friends, according to an insider. "I think from the moment that him and I met, I just knew it," Tisdale gushed in an interview with On Air With Ryan Seacrest in December 2013. "I was like, 'Ok this is the guy,' and he knew the same thing. It doesn't get any better. I just can't explain it."
Tisdale was the guest of honor at a Miami, Fla. bachelorette party in May. She was joined by several close friends, including her former High School Musical costar and best friend Vanessa Hudgens. The gal pals spent the weekend partying at Purdy Lounge and stripped down to bikinis as they relaxed on a yacht.
This is the first marriage for both. Tisdale was briefly linked to Boys Like Girls' Martin Johnson in 2012 and previously dated Step Up Revolution director Scott Speer until their split in December 2011.
