In a Tuesday interview for SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Showthe 33-year-old WandaVision actress — who referred to Arnett as her husband in June 2021 — revealed the pair “eloped” and then “had a wedding at another time.”

“It was before COVID,” she continued. “I just never talked about it.”

Olsen said Arnett, 30, “wouldn’t have been able to come” with her to England “at all” had the pandemic been in full swing during that point.

“And also everything was so backed up. You couldn’t even, like, try to get married then. But it ended up working out,” she added.

Aside from her 2021 “husband” reference, the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness star has remained relatively tight-lipped about her relationship with Arnett, a musician, since the pair was first spotted together in March 2017.

A little over two years later, PEOPLE reported that Olsen and Arnett were engaged in July 2019. At the time, a source confirmed that the engagement followed three years of dating.
