Double delight! Chad Michael Murray is a married man and a future dad, the actor’s rep confirms to Us Weekly. The One Tree Hill alum, 33, secretly married his Chosen costar Sarah Roemer, and the two are expecting their first child together.
“Chad and Sarah are extremely happy and excited, and enjoying their life together,” Murray’s rep told Us in an exclusive statement. “We please ask that their privacy be respected at this special and personal time.”
Last Thursday, Jan. 15, Murray was spotted holding hands with Roemer at ABC’s Winter 2015 TCA party, where he was photographed wearing a band on his left ring finger.
Us Weekly broke the news last August that Murray was dating his Chosen costar Roemer, 30. She is best known for starring opposite Shia LaBeouf in the 2007 thriller Disturbia, as well as the films Fired Up! (2009) and The Grudge 2 (2006).
Murray will soon return to the small screen as agent Jack Thompson in Marvel’s ABC show Agent Carter.
He is best known for his portrayal of Lucas Scott, the basketball-playing protagonist on WB’s drama-filled series One Tree Hill.
“It was a large part of my life, so every day that goes by, at some point you’ll see something that refers to it, or at least I will, in my life,” he recently told Cosmopolitan.com of his beloved character. “Playing the moral compass for that show, which is what Lucas was, was a great way for me to learn as an artist, and to start understanding emotions and understanding myself.”
This is the first marriage for Roemer and the second for Murray. (E! News was first to report the story.)
