Ashton And Demi Tie The Knot

Hollywood sweethearts Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore cemented their two-year romance by tying the knot during a ceremony in front of 100 guests, according to published reports.

"Many sources told us what the wedding was like," The Early Show entertainment contributor and People magazine Senior Editor Jess Cagle tells co-anchor Rene Syler. "However, one reporter spoke to his brother, who said there was no wedding. So maybe we've all being punk'd. But I don't think that's the case."

Kutcher, 27, and Moore, 42, were married at a private home Saturday night, Us Weekly and People reported on their Web sites.

According to the magazines, the wedding guests included Moore's ex-husband, Bruce Willis, and their three daughters, Rumer, 17, Scout, 14, and Tallulah, 11; actors Wilmer Valderrama, Lucy Liu and Soleil Moon Frye; and Frye's husband, Jason Goldberg, who co-produced the MTV television show "Punk'd" with Kutcher.

The ceremony took place at the newly renovated house Kutcher and Moore share in Beverly Hills.

"They waited for the renovation because no marriage can survive a renovation," Cagle says tongue-in-cheek.

It was a traditional Jewish ceremony with men seated on one side and women on the other, with their heads covered. It was performed by a rabbi, who is Moore's Kaballa spiritual adviser and teacher.

Moore, who starred in "Ghost," "G.I. Jane" and "Striptease," first began dating the younger Kutcher in 2003, just as she was making a highly publicized return to the screen as a high-kicking villain in "Charlie's Angeles: Full Throttle."

The reason the wedding was kept a secret was because not too many people were in the loop. It was a small ceremony that was put together fairly quickly, Cagle says. "They didn't have a lot of time for things to leak out. Also, she used her personal chef to help her with the wedding, and a friend helped her plan it."

The wedding, however, was not a surprise.

"It's more a surprise that the romance has lasted. They were a punch line in the beginning," Cagle says. "They've weathered a lot. Rumors that Demi was pregnant, etc. But they both say they want to have kids."

The reason it works is because Kutcher fits well into the family," Cagle says. "He likes Demi and Bruce's kids. The kids and Bruce like him. They've become 'poster children' for divorced people who can keep the family together."

People magazine said after Kutcher began dating Moore, "he quickly carved out a place in the lives of her three daughters by Willis, who came to embrace Kutcher as a third parent — affectionately calling him MOD, short for 'My Other Dad.' "

As for the age difference, Cagle says it clearly doesn't matter to them at all. They find it fascinating that so many people make a big deal about it. People magazine will have wedding details on Friday, he says.

The reported marriage was the first for Kutcher, whose credits include the TV series "That '70s Show" and films "Cheaper by the Dozen" and "Guess Who?" It's the third for Moore, who has starred in three dozen films during her 24-year career.

Moore's two previous marriages — to rocker Freddie Moore (1980-84) and Willis (1987-2000) — ended in divorce.

In an interview in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, Moore described Kutcher as her "soul mate" and said they wanted to expand their family. But she said they had no marriage plans.
