Teresa Palmer and Mark Webber decided to get married ahead of the birth of their first child. The couple wed on Saturday in Mexico, reports Us Weekly.
“They wanted to get married before the baby arrives,” a source said.
The couple reportedly exchanged vows in a private house with an ocean view in Punta Mita. Palmer’s baby bump was on full display as she was said to be wearing a white lace dress that accentuated her belly with embellishments at the shoulders.
“They were holding hands the entire time,” the insider added about when the pair were at the altar.
Less than a week before, the 27-year-old “Warm Bodies” actress attended her baby shower at Red O restaurant in West Hollywood.
“Teresa looked so happy and thrilled to be having a baby,” a source told the mag. “She was smiling the entire afternoon and excited to have her friends around her.”
Surrounded by family and friends including actress Jamie King, Palmer beamed during the joyous occasion that had Mexican food and party games like decorating baby bibs.
“Everyone was posing for pictures and rubbing Teresa’s belly, seeing if they could feel the baby kick,” the source added. “Mark always had his hand on Teresa’s stomach as well, and seemed excited and proud.”
While Webber, 33, is already a father of one son, Isaac Love, from a previous relationship, this is his first child with Palmer.
