Bourne Identity star Matt Damon has married his girlfriend Luciana Barroso in New York, his publicist confirms.

Damon and Barroso, who is three months pregnant with the couple's first child, were thrilled, said his Los Angeles-based spokeswoman.

No more details from the marriage were released to the media.

Oscar-winner Damon, 35, and Barroso, 30, have been together for about two years and got engaged in September. Damon currently stars in Syriana.

The actor first rose to stardom in 1997 independent movie Good Will Hunting, which he co-wrote and starred in with his friend Ben Affleck.

The movie earned the pair an Oscar for best original screenplay.

After flops The Legend of Bagger Vance and All the Pretty Horses failed to excite fans Damon rebounded in 2002 with spy thriller The Bourne Identity.

Other recent successes include Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve and The Bourne Supremacy.

He is currently filming The Good Shepherd, in New York.
