The This Is Us alum, 45, secretly tied the knot with model girlfriend, Jarah Mariano, a rep confirms to PEOPLE. Us Weekly was first to report the news. Troy Williams of Simply Troy planned the affair. According to the outlet, the actor and Mariano, 38, exchanged vows official earlier this year in a private ceremony attended by family and close friends.

Ventimiglia has been notoriously private about his relationships, telling PEOPLE in 2017 that he prefers to keep his personal life out of the spotlight due to his respect for his craft.

“I try to minimize myself so people can see the character and can really dive into the work,” he explained. “I try and remain as anonymous and invisible as I can so it doesn’t take away from the experience of the men that I play. I don’t know how interesting my life is any more than anyone else’s.”

In a separate interview with PEOPLE about the topic, Ventimiglia said, "I feel like there’s a currency to your personal life and your performance — your acting, your work. If that personal life starts to outweigh what the work is, then your work suffers."

"Your actual performance suffers because the audience won’t see the character, they’ll see you. And then you’re just playing yourself, but you’re playing a version of yourself that’s not yourself," he continued. "I have a life, but nobody needs to know about it. Because I’m just the same as anyone else."

But that doesn't mean the actor won't share what he's looking for in a partner.

During an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in February 2023, Ventimiglia said he looks for "honesty, authenticity, intellect" in a partner.
