Former “X-Files” star Gillian Anderson has married longtime boyfriend Julian Ozanne.

The couple exchanged vows Dec. 29 at a friend’s beach house on Lamu’s Shella island, off Kenya’s Indian Ocean coast, People magazine said Tuesday. The ceremony, which included hymns sung by a Kenyan choir in Swahili, was attended by immediate family and a handful of close friends.

“I can confirm it took place,” People quotes Jonathan Clayton, a veteran London Times African correspondent and friend of Ozanne’s, as saying. “It was a spectacular occasion. They were both delighted, but I would rather not go into details.”

Anderson’s manager, Connie Freiberg, confirmed the report Tuesday.

Ozanne, 42, a documentary filmmaker, was previously a correspondent with the London Financial Times.

Anderson, 36, starred as agent Dana Scully in the Fox sci-fi series “The X-Files,” which co-starred David Duchovny.

She has a 10-year-old daughter, Piper, from her previous marriage to production designer Clyde Klotz. Anderson played Lily Bart in 2000’s “The House of Mirth,” an adaptation of Edith Wharton’s novel.
