Alexa Vega, 25, and Carlos Pena Jr., 24, were married Jan. 4 in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Congrats to the happy couple!

Carlos Pena and Alexa Vega tied the knot at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on Jan. 4, according to People. A lot has been made of their short engagement, but the pair has been dating since late 2012. Not the longest courtship, to be sure, but the young couple seems to have gone into this with their heads on straight and we wish them all the best!

However, this is not the first time that the young Alexa has walked down the aisle; it’s not often that you see a 25-year-old with a divorce under their belt!

Alexa married producer Sean Covel when she was just 22 and he was 34 after a year-long engagement. While some outlets have reported that Sean was a producer on Spy Kids, this is not the case; he is perhaps best known for producing Napoleon Dynamite… the TV show. (So, no, Sean had not been hanging around since she was a Spy Child. Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

Adorably, the newlyweds seem to have even merged their last names! Alexa tweeted the following:

And if you look at Alexa‘s and Carlos‘s IMDb pages, they each have their last names now listed as PenaVega! So sweet!

While we all know Alexa best as being part of the Spy Kids franchise, she has been working steadily since the last one was released in 2011 and has a number of in-progress projects and has had many in between.

Carlos, for his part, is of course best known as being a part of the band/Nickelodeon TV show Big Time Rush.

Alexa and Carlos, we wish you the best of luck in your marriage! Congratulations!

So, HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Did they rush into getting married, or did they think it through? Do you like that they combined their last names, or is it kitschy? Let us know!
