NEW YORK, April 5 (UPI) -- Unforgettable actress Poppy Montgomery surprised her fans Friday when she announced she got married in secret in February … and wore jeans while saying "I do."

Montgomery announced her Feb. 19 nuptials at Disneyland on Live! with Kelly & Michael.

"My mother was horrified. She was like, 'How do you turn Disneyland into Vegas? You don't run away to Disneyland and get married!' " Montgomery said. "Mickey and Minnie came dressed as a bride and a groom!"

She married longtime boyfriend Shawn Sanford, with whom she has a daughter.

"My children were so in awe of Mickey and Minnie that they didn't really pay any attention to the wedding," she said. "And then my stepdaughter said, 'Why is Minnie dressed better than you?' Because I wore jeans!"
