Hugh Hefner's youngest son Cooper, 28, has tied the knot with actress Scarlett Byrne, 29, in a modest ceremony at a registry office in California.

The couple, who had been engaged since August 2015, posted about their wedding on social media and said they were planning a larger celebration in the coming months.

"Scarlett and I have made it officially legal and the two of us could not be happier," Hefner, 28, wrote on Twitter, announcing the news.

"Cheers to a life full of love, happiness, adventure, and great purpose, Mrs. Hefner."

"I cannot wait to continue building a life together. My heart is so full and I am so grateful for our love," she posted.

Cooper and his brother Marston were born to Hugh Hefner's second wife Kimberley Conrad.
