Noel Vasquez/Getty Images for Extra(LOS ANGELES) -- Christina Applegate has wed musician and composer Martyn LeNoble in a private ceremony.

US Weekly reports that the pair tied the knot after three years of engagement -- Applegate and LeNoble got engaged on Valentine's Day in 2010 --  though they've been together five years in all. They also share a 2-year-old daughter Sadie Grace, who was born January 2011.

Applegate, 41, credits LeNoble, 43, one of the founding members of the rock band Porno for Pyros, for helping her get through her breast cancer battle. She was diagnosed in 2008 and the same year underwent a double mastectomy. "I have a small but mighty support system and Martyn has really been an incredible part of my life," the Anchorman actress told the magazine in 2010. "Without him, I don't know if I could've gone through any of it. He came around at a time when there was a lot of loss in my life on many levels, so he's been a really incredible help."

This is the second marriage for both.  Applegate's was previously married to actor Johnathon Schaech for six years.

Sam Champion and Rubem Robierb Wed

Ida Mae Astute/ABC(NEW YORK) -- ABC News weather editor and Good Morning America anchor Sam Champion and Rubem Robierb wed in an intimate ceremony at Champion’s New York City apartment Friday afternoon. They were surrounded by friends,  family and Champion’s fellow GMA anchors. Robierb’s mother and sisters even Skyped in from Brazil to be a part of the special day.

N.Y. State Supreme Court Justice George J. Silver conducted the ceremony, which lasted about 10 minutes. Robin Roberts also played a part in the nuptials, reading a beautiful poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Earlier in the day on GMA, Champion spoke about the big day. When Lara Spencer asked him if he was nervous, he replied, “The whole family is at the house right now, so I should be able to walk in and have everything [done].” Though he didn’t divulge any details, Champion joked about the first dance song. “Is ‘Stairway to Heaven’ out of the question? That was the ‘70s love song.”

He also received some advice from his married co-stars. George Stephanopoulos advised him to “remember every second” and Elizabeth Vargas seconded that notion. “Be present in every single moment,” she said. “As big as today is, it’s the rest of your life that is really amazing.”

Champion and Robierb met through mutual friends a few years ago in Miami, where Robierb lives. Born in Brazil, Robierb is an artist who shows his work in Miami, Atlanta, Santa Monica and New York. The two announced their engagement in October.

The newlyweds plan to have a party in Miami Dec. 31 to further celebrate their nuptials.
