Aubrey Plaza is married! The Parks and Recreation actress subtly dropped the news she had married boyfriend Jeff Baena in an Instagram post on Friday, May 7.

"So proud of my darling husband @jeffbaena for dreaming up another film that takes us to italia to cause some more trouble," she wrote. "Excited to be reunited with the amazing @alisonbrie (who also co-wrote this one!) And @theofficialsuperstar @sordociego @lauren_weedman and so many more fun people in this."

Baena, a screenwriter, and Plaza have been together since 2001. The Hollywood couple has collaborated often with Plaza starring in Baena's directorial debut in 2014. She also appeared in his comedy Life After Beth, along with The Little Hours. Together, they've been the ultimate team. 

"I've been there from the beginning of every idea because we're together," Plaza told IndieWire in a 2017 interview. "We're working on it even when we're not working on it. It just made sense. Also, we shot [this film] the middle of nowhere. Jeff and I had to be hosting this experience together. We had to take on those leadership roles, whether we wanted to or not."

In the same interview, Baena also touched on the dynamics of sharing a romantic and work relationship with Plaza. "She turns it on and off. I have my ideas about the way my career should go, but I don't have ideas about the way her career should go, so I don't feel comfortable telling what she should or shouldn't do," he said. "But if she asks me for my opinion, I'll chime in. I'll just never offer it without being asked first."
