Former "Little House on the Prairie" child star Melissa Gilbert and "thirtysomething" and "West Wing" cast member Timothy Busfield were married on Wednesday, People magazine reports.

The two, who each were married twice before, wed "in a private ceremony at San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Wednesday," Gilbert's representative said in a statement Thursday. The two had gotten engaged over the holidays, Busfield's representative told People magazine in January.
