(USA TODAY) - Wedding bells rang for comedian/actress Lily Tomlin over the holidays.

And they were long overdue.

After more than four decades together, Tomlin, 74, married Jane Wagner, 78, in a private New Year's Eve ceremony, reports People.

"They're very happy," said Tomlin's rep, Jennifer Allen.

Columnist Liz Smith, 90, broke the news of the wedding, writing: "My wish is that their happiness will be as great as their combined talents."

Tomlin, known for appearances on Laugh-In, Murphy Brown and The West Wing, also has starred in films including 9 to 5 and All of Me.

Wagner was writer of Tomlin's Tony-winning one-woman show The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, and wrote the screenplay for her movie The Incredible Shrinking Woman. She is also coming to Grand Rapids this March to headline Gilda's LaughFest.
