*The Falcon is officially grounded.

Congratulations are in order for Anthony Mackie, who – you could say – “secretly” married his longtime girlfriend Sheletta Chapital last December, although the news is just now coming to light.

Page Six reports the childhood sweethearts tied the knot in a small ceremony in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic while Mackie was in the Caribbean filming “Our Brand is Crisis” with Sandra Bullock.

On hand for the “secret” wedding were 150 of Mackie and Chapital’s closest friends and family, who gathered to see the couple united on the beach at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

“It was low-key and super-relaxed,” a source who attended the beach wedding told Page Six. “They had a welcome dinner. We golfed and drank. They went on a honeymoon soon after.”

Mackie’s wedding marks a new era for the 36-year-old “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” star and Chapital. The couple, who have two sons together, have known each other since they were seven-years-old. The pair spent years dating on and off since elementary school before committing to each other in 2009 while Mackie was in his New Orleans shooting “The Hurt Locker.”

Page Six notes that the actor relocated for a permanent move to New Orleans (their home town) last year after living in New York.
