“I got married today," Ratajkowski captioned a loving selfie with her new husband, Bear-McClard.

The “Gone Girl” actress wore a mustard-colored Zara pantsuit for the low-key nuptials and even opted against a diamond engagement ring. Ratajkowski’s selfie shows only a simple gold band around the model’s finger.

Bear-McClard, 31, wore a matching gold band plus two flashier rings on his fingers that read “EM” and “RATA.”

Minutes after her announcement, Ratajkowski celebrated the event with a photo of the couple embracing.

Before the whirlwind romance, Ratajkowski spent four years dating musician Jeff Magid. The model never confirmed her breakup with Magid; rumors spread of the relationship's end only when sources spotted Ratajkowski with Bear-McClard around Valentine’s Day.

Despite the remarkably short love affair, fans and friends shared congratulations and well-wishes for the beautiful couple.
