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!

Alexa Vega & Carlos Pena Marry In Mexico After Two-Month Engagement

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!

Alexa Vega & Carlos Pena Combine Their Last Names To PenaVega

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!

Well…I’m totally shocked! I didn’t even know but I do remember her having a special guest spot on Big Time Rush…anyway, even though I’m seriously jealous b/c I think Carlos Pena is sooo cute and he was/is my First Favorite Rusher, I wish them the best b/c marriage deserves respect and I would not wish anything negative on my favorite Guy or a girl who I think is a pretty cool actress (winkin’ at you Alexa ;~) ). So seriously God Bless and I wish you guys much joy.

I believe that both Alexa and Carlos did rush into things, it’s not that they are too young, I mean they are in the decent age to get married but, it’s Hollywood, so many things happen in Hollywood that could happen. But, the PenaVega last name change, I love in my opinion. I support them both on their relationship and hopefully it lasts for a long time but I actually think that Alexa and Carlos, knowing that Carlos had a break up a year before Alexa, he seems like a sensitive person cause I saw the video on Youtube that he made. So, they could of waited for another year or two. And in my opinion if they did love each other so much, they could of waited a bit longer.

First off I believe that they rushed into this a little fast…..If I were her, already married before, she should’ve waited a bit longer to tie the knot. Their both so young, in hollywood, focus on their careers first, their at the age now where you will get the most opportunities. And the last name combination? A bit tacky and immature.
