Lovebirds for life! Margot Robbie married her boyfriend, Tom Ackerley, in a secret wedding at Harvest Newrybar on the Gold Coast in her native Australia on Sunday, December 18, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

An insider told Woman's Day, which was first to report the union, that the Gold Coast "was somewhere she always wanted to get married, given it's where she was raised as a kid, on her grandparents' farm."

"Tom initially wanted to get married in the U.K., but he knows how much it means to Margot to tie the knot on home soil and how special it is for her, so he didn't put up much of a fight," the Australian magazine's source continued. "They decided to marry around Christmas so they could spend time with both their families afterward, which they've never done before."

The pair have largely kept their romance out of the spotlight as fans speculated about their relationship status. Earlier this year, the Suicide Squad actress, 26, told Extra the rumors they had secretly tied the knot were untrue. (The pair were spotted wearing matching gold bands while she filmed in Toronto this past summer.)

"I can't even get a day off at the moment, so that stuff's gonna have to wait," she said in August, though, she added, "I may be biased but he’s the most handsome guy in the world." While details of how the pair met are unclear, both Robbie and the British assistant director worked on Suite Française in 2014, which may have been when they first met.

In June, Robbie opened up to The Daily Telegraph's Sunday Style magazine to reveal the couple’s secret to keeping their love alive despite often living apart because of their busy work schedules. "The most helpful thing I’ve learned from other couples in this industry is that you don’t go more than three weeks without seeing each other," she said. "Being in a long-distance relationship can be really hard when you don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. It can mess with your head, so the three-week rule is key."
