According to People magazine, the "Saturday Night Live" alum and the "X-Men: Apocalypse" actress married in New York over the weekend. The ceremony was low-key, held in a friend's home in the Big Apple, and only their son and a witness were in attendance.

They confirmed their relationship months later, with Mulaney announcing in a September appearance on "Late Night With Seth Meyers" that they were expecting their first child together.

"I packed a lot into this … is it September now?" Mulaney shared. "I went to rehab in September, I got out in October, I moved out of my home from my ex-wife … Then in the spring I went to Los Angeles and met and started to date a wonderful woman named Olivia."

He continued, "I got into this relationship that's been really beautiful with someone incredible. And we're having a baby together. I was nervous when I was about to say the news!"

The couple welcomed their son in December of that same year.

During a 2015 interview with HuffPost, Munn opened up on how she first met Mulaney.

The couple's union comes months after the "Mortdecai" actress announced that she received a "terrifying" breast cancer diagnosis last year after tests revealed she had luminal B in both breasts. Munn subsequently had to undergo four surgeries, a double mastectomy, and a medically induced menopause.

"I was not someone who obsessed over death or was afraid of it in any way," she told People at the time. "But having a little baby at home made everything much more terrifying."

"You realize cancer doesn't care who you are; it doesn't care if you have a baby or if you don't have time," she shared. "It comes at you, and you have no choice but to face it head-on."

Munn was full of praise for Mulaney, revealing that he was always present throughout her procedures and recovery period.

"It would've felt like climbing an iceberg without him," she told People Magazine. "I don't think he had a moment to himself, between being an incredibly hands-on father and going to and from the hospital— taking Malcolm to the park, putting him to nap, driving to Cedars-Sinai, hanging out with me, going home, putting Malcolm to bed, coming back to me. And he did it all happily."

She went on, "It's the best except when you're just out of surgery and it hurts to move or even laugh. I made him leave the room a few times because he would make me laugh too hard."
