Pretty In Pink star Andrew McCarthy has apparently secretly married his girlfriend and stage manager Dolores Rice. The press were evidently pretty slow to catch up on it too, as the union reportedly happened last year.

The actor-turned-travel writer exchanged vows with Rice on August 28th of last year after several years of dating. McCarthy has been married previously, when he wed his college sweetheart Carol Schneider, and he admitted that it took him a while to get over that failed attempt and pluck up the courage to get wed again. He confessed that he only agreed to settle down with the mother of his six-year-old daughter Willow after taking a remote trek through South America.

Talking to Us Weekly magazine, the actor said "Dolores and I had a great life, and yet I was yearning to hit the road. Some people go to therapy to figure it out; I sailed down the Amazon!... I told her, 'I'm going away from you so I can come home to you.'" McCarthy's last marriage ended when he divorced Schneider in 2005, the pair of them having had one child together, Sam, aged 10. McCarthy's had a relatively quiet year work-wise, perhaps this surprise marriage explains why.
