Billy Bob Thornton has tied the knot for the sixth time, saying “I Do” to his longtime girlfriend Connie Angland in October.

The 59-year-old Fargo star divorced his last wife Angelina Jolie in 2003.

Thornton’s rep confirmed the news, saying in a statement, “Billy Bob Thornton, 59, and longtime girlfriend Connie Angland, 49, were wed on Oct. 22, 2014 at their home in Los Angeles during a private ceremony before family”.

The couple are parents to a 10-year-old daughter named Bella.

Connie, a puppeteer and costume artist, has worked with special effects crews on movies such as Men in Black, Men in Black II, Stigmata and Planet of the Apes.

This is the sixth marriage for the Slingblade actor.  His first marriage was in 1978 to Melissa Lee Gatlin. They had a daughter, Amanda, before divorcing two years later.

His second wife was Toni Lawrence and his third was Cynda Williams. There were no children from those marriages.

Thornton’s fourth ex-wife was Pietra Thornton. They share two adult sons, William and Harry.

His fifth and most famous ex-wife, fellow Oscar winner Angelina Jolie. They were married from 2000 and 2003.

In October Billy Bob set the record straight about his relationship with Jolie, saying, “I mean it was a crazy time. I’ve never been fond of it”.

He explained, “[The] vial of blood is very simple. You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your granny in and wear it around your neck? She bought two of those.  We were apart a lot because she’s off making Tomb Raider and I’m making Monster’s Ball.

“She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razorblade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter’s baby hair in one. Same thing.  From that, we were wearing quart jars of blood around our necks. And we were vampires and we lived in a dungeon.”

Congrats to Billy Bob on his marriage. Let’s hope the sixth time is a charm.
