Freida Pinto and fiancé Cory Tran eloped during the pandemic

Freida Pinto is officially a married woman.

The “Slumdog Millionaire” star, 37, revealed on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” Wednesday she and fiancé Cory Tran secretly tied the knot during quarantine.

In the segment, Pinto first showed Clarkson a few photos from her romantic engagement, which prompted the host to ask, “How’s wedding planning going?”

“Oh excellent, we’re already married,” Pinto replied with a big laugh.

The “Intrusion” star shared that she and Tran, 34, initially planned to have an Indian- wedding in Big Sur to honor her heritage, but then “COVID happened.”

“We just realized we were going to be planning this for the rest of our lives and probably never doing it,” she explained. “So, we decided one day to go to the Honda Center in Anaheim and just get married.”

Pinto said an added bonus of not having a big wedding was that she avoided the stress that comes along with that.

“I did not want stomach ulcers from planning my own wedding, and this was perfect,” she said. “We got married and then we got to go home and take an afternoon nap.”

She and Tran, a photographer, met through mutual friend Aaron Paul.

Pinto told Clarkson that at first she wasn’t too keen on getting set up on a date.

“For some reason, Aaron, who loves love and loves the idea of people being together … he was like, ‘I want you forever in my life, Frieda, so I’m going to introduce you to my friend,’” the actress shared on the daytime show Wednesday.

“I said I did not want to be hooked up with anybody,” she added. “But he still did it, and turns out I got engaged to Cory — his friend!”

Pinto and Tran are now expecting their first child.

The couple made the announcement on Instagram in June, and disclosed at the time that “Baby Tran, this Fall!”
