Daniel and Rachel kept much of their blossoming romance under wraps. So much so that their 2011 wedding came as a complete surprise. The couple wed just six months after they started dating. They enjoyed an intimate ceremony surrounded by close friends and family.

According to People magazine, Daniel and Rachel said "I do" in front of four people: Daniel's daughter Ella, Rachel's son Henry and two friends.

In a 2012 interview with GQ magazine, the Knives Out star explained how the couple did it "for private reasons." Opening up, he shared: "We got away with it. We did it privately. And I've got a lot of people to thank for that. But that was the point. We did it for private reasons."

He went on to say: "Because we didn't want it [expletive], because that would be sharing a secret. And the whole point is that it was a secret. A secret is a secret in my mind."

Black Widow star Rachel never planned on tying the knot. In an interview with the Evening Standard, the actress revealed: "I never thought that I would get married. It was not an ambition of mine. It was the opposite. I couldn't relate to romantic comedies – marriage seems to be the whole point of them."

She continued: "Then it just happened, happily, at a more mature moment."

When asked about whether marriage had changed her, the brunette beauty quipped: "I mean, I wear a ring all the time… I wear my ring with pride. I'm taken."

Are Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz happily married?

Whilst the couple keep much of their private life out of the glaring spotlight, the duo aren't afraid to showcase their love for one another on the red carpet. Daniel and Rachel dazzled fans back in January 2012 when they made their red carpet debut at the premiere of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in Madrid.

In a touching display of affection, Daniel was photographed with his arm around his wife. For the special occasion, Daniel looked dapper in an earth-toned linen suit, whilst Rachel looked her usual polished self in a chic ruffled black dress.

That same year, Daniel told GQ magazine, "I'm in love. I'm very happy. And that is as far as I'm prepared to go… I don't want to say something now that might be thrown back later… My happiness is more important to me.

When asked whether their daughter boasts Daniel's infamous "steely blue eyes" and big shoulders, Rachel enthused: "Yeah, yeah, yeah."

Whilst the couple have hinted at their daughter's appearance, Rachel and Daniel keep their child firmly out of the spotlight. There are no public photos of their daughter whose name also remains a mystery.

Beyond their blonde locks, the father-daughter duo looked remarkably similar thanks to their piercing blue eyes.

Where do Craig and Weisz live?

The pair split their time between London and New York. They have homes in both locations, a townhouse in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, and a home in Camden, London.

Their London abode is reportedly worth an eye-watering £6million. The couple won a battle to keep a 65ft tree in their garden five years ago, despite neighbours claiming the roots had damaged their own properties.
