Alexa Vega and Carlos Pena, Jr. married in Mexico on Jan. 4 after a short 3-month engagement.

Vega And Pena Married In Mexico

Vega, known for her breakout as a child star in the Spy Kids series, and Pena, of Big Time Rush, began dating late in 2012, shortly after Vega’s divorce from her ex, Sean Covel, was finalized. Covel, 37, a film producer, was married to Vega for two years and offered his congratulations to his ex when her engagement was announced in September.

“Deepest congratulations to @alexavega and @TheCarlosPena! May your days be happy, lives be long, and your children, somehow, be tall,” Covel tweeted Sept. 12.

Vega, 25, and Pena, 24, have not been shy about sharing their relationship with the public. Their respective Instagram pages feature many photos of themselves, and the couple even announced their engagement on the social networking site by sharing pictures of the ring Pena designed for his new bride.

The happy couple kept their fans up to date on their wedding plans through various social media accounts as well. On Jan. 3, the day before the ceremony, Vega shared a photo of her and her fiancé wearing matching hoodies with ‘LexLos’ written on the back.

Vega and Pena tied the knot in a small ceremony in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on Jan. 4. Vega tweeted about her nerves early in the day, writing, “I’m getting excited nervous!”

Later, Vega updated her Twitter post-ceremony.

PenaVega appears to be the couple’s chosen married name. The names on their respective IMDB pages have both been changed to PenaVega – Carlos PenaVega and Alexa PenaVega – though this may be temporary.

Pena and Vega have been enjoying their honeymoon ever since, and have stayed away from social media save for one Tweet by Vega thanking fans for their support and asking for privacy.

The newlyweds also released a statement about their wedding, saying, “We are so thrilled and blessed that we were able to have all of our close friends and family join us on our special day.”
