In what might be described as a modern reboot of Romeo and Juliet, rival Australian soap stars Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley have married!

The Melbourne born actors – who appeared on long running Aussie TV series Home and Away and Neighbours in the 00s and have co-starred on American horror show The 100 since 2014 – surprised fans by sharing the happy news via their respective Twitter accounts on Saturday.

Since first appearing as on-screen love interests Clarke Griffin and Bellamy Blake on the CW post-apocalyptic TV show five years ago, fans have been calling for Eliza and Bob to get together in real life.

But last weekend’s announcement was the first time viewers had any idea they were an item!

In her tweet, 29-year-old Eliza wrote: “Recently I married my best friend and soul mate @WildpipM .. We are very happy and ask that you keep your comments kind and respect our privacy at this time.”

Eliza’s post, which she accompanied with a stunning shot of the couple holding hands on their wedding day, quickly racked up more than 155,000 likes and 37,500 retweets from delighted followers, with one user writing: “Sis I had a heart attack I am so happy for you!”

Bob shared his own take on the happy news, tweeting: “It is with such a full heart that I call @MisElizaJane my wife. This is something we both cherish very deeply and are beyond happy. Please remember to be respectful and kind to one another. Be well be kind.”

The 100’s creator and executive producer Jason Rothenberg tweeted his congratulations, wishing the couple a “lifetime of happiness and love” together.

The pair tied the knot at Manana Hills Estate in Hawaii on May 6, according to Nine Honey.

The ceremony was officiated by Reverend James Chun, who took to Instagram to share his congratulations to the newlyweds.

“What an honour to officiate over the ceremony of two amazing souls. So warm and tender with one another. Congratulations, Eliza + Bob!” he wrote.
