Ludacris wastes no time marrying longtime love Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue

Ludacris combines proposal and wedding, marrying Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue over holidays after years of dating

Ludacris may have waited years to pop the question, but once he did, the marriage happened really, really quickly. Like, the same day.

On Tuesday, he revealed his over-the-holidays wedding to years-long girlfriend Eudoxie Mbouguiyengue.

"Why wait? Did the thing before 2015. #mrandmrsrbridges," wrote the rapper, whose real name is Chris Bridges.

"Great way to go into the new year!" she wrote on Instagram, showing off some cozy wedding-day shots with him in a tux, sans tie, and her in a sleek, somewhat revealing white gown reportedly selected for her by her new mother-in-law. The shot he posted showed the couple relaxing in front of a Christmas tree.

After dating Unspoken Angels founder Mbouguiyengue since 2009, the "Furious 7" actor had asked for her hand right around Christmas.

"She didn't say yes. She said HELL YES! #milehighproposal," Ludacris, 37, posted on Dec. 26, showing himself and his lady cuddling inside a private jet in a collage that also included a shot of her covering her eyes in a window seat and a pic of the proposal, "Eugenie will you marry me," written in white on a field below. The message was reportedly visible while the plane was landing.

"BEST DAY OF MY LIFE WITH THE LOVE OF MY LIFE!!!," she wrote, uploading the same collage on her Instagram.

According to TMZ, the couple returned from their day trip -- a dinner with friends in Georgia -- and came home to Atlanta to see the dress draped over a piece of furniture. They got married on the spot with friends and family on hand, the website said.

They headed out a couple of days later to honeymoon in Costa Rica, where Luda approached the zip-lining and the cuisine with gusto.

He acknowledged his new bride Wednesday on Instagram, posting a shot of Mrs. Bridges for #WCW: Woman Crush Wednesday.
