Congratulations to Michael C Hall who has tied the knot for the third time. The former Dexter actor married his editor girlfriend Morgan Macgregor during a low-key ceremony at New York's City Hall on Monday morning, his rep has confirmed.

The happy newlyweds have been dating since 2012 and made their first official appearance as a couple that same year at the Emmy Awards.

Michael, 45, has been married twice before; he was previously wed to actress Amy Spanger from 2002 until 2007, and then to his former Dexter co-star Jennifer Carpenter, from who he split in December 2010.

Jennifer stood by his side while the star battled Hodgkin's lymphoma. He announced his cancer was fully in remission in April 2010, and eight months later the couple confirmed their separation, finalising their divorce the following year.

Michael is currently starring on stage in David Bowie's musical Lazarus, which is a sequel to the singer's 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth and features new songs by the Ziggy Stardust singer. Through the production, Michael got the chance to meet David a number of times, and he has said that he felt the news of the rock star's death in January like "an internal fist clench".

Speaking to the Guardian, Michael also revealed that on the show's opening night David sent him "a very, very amazing gift and note".

"Out of respect for his intense privacy I'll just say that it was an artefact from his past that he had passed on to me," he revealed. "And it will be a talisman to me for the rest of my life."
