JUST MARRIED star Brittany Murphy gave her fiance JEFF KWATINETZ a huge surprise - by throwing him a bowling party for his birthday.

The bubbly actress, 26, arranged a bash for the Hollywood talent agent's 39th birthday at the PINZ BOWLING CENTER in Studio City, California, on 3 April (04).

A partygoer says, "His mouth dropped open, and he was like, 'Oh, wow.'"

Murphy, ex-girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, decorated the venue with black and silver balloons, mini footballs and silver stars hanging from the ceiling emblazoned with the logo of Kwatinetz's favourite football team, the OAKLAND RAIDERS.

Jared Leto, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube were among the guests who partied until 3 am.
