Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart Finally Tie the Knot

Han Solo is solo no more. Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart are finally married.

After eight years of dating, the couple got married Tuesday in New Mexico, where Ford is filming "Cowboys and Aliens." Publicists for the stars confirm that they did indeed tie the knot.

Ford and Flockhart had an unlikely official performing their wedding: New Mexico governor and former Presidential candidate Bill Richardson, who is a friend of the couple. Richardson and his wife Barbara played host to the nuptials at the Governor's Mansion in Santa Fe and also served as witnesses.

Because Richardson is not ordained, Supreme Court Chief Justice Charles Daniels also attended the ceremony to make Ford and Flockhart's union legally legit.

Also in attendence: the couple's 9-year-old son, Liam, whom Flockhart adopted in 2001.

The governor and his staff declined to divulge details of the ceremony, telling The Associated Press that it was "a private matter."

Ford, 67, and Flockhart, 45, started dating after meeting at the 2002 Golden Globes. He proposed to her last year on Valentine's Day.

While this is the first marriage for the "Brothers & Sisters" actress, the "Indiana Jones" and "Star Wars" leading man has been married twice before -- first to Mary Marquardt and then to screenwriter Melissa Mathison. He has four children from those relationships.

Much ado was made about Flockhart and Ford's age difference when their relationship began. But in 2003, she told People magazine that the buzz doesn't bother her.

"It doesn't faze me," she said. "Sometimes I even say, 'Wow, I keep forgetting that he's [22] years older than me.' It doesn't factor into our relationship at all."

Age Difference No Issue for Harrison Ford, Calista Flockhart

For Ford, falling in love with Flockhart later in life has been a blessing.

"Romantic love is one of the most exciting and fulfilling kinds of love, and I think there's a potential for it at any stage of your life," he told People in 2003. "I was not surprised that I was able to fall in love, and I wasn't surprised that I did. But I'm very grateful."
