Fans have been quick to offer their congratulations with several commenting that they are delighted to see the 47-year-old actress so happy.

One person wrote: ‘Congratulations Denise. Great to see you happy again!!! Was worth the wait!! ❤❤💋🌸’.

Another said: ‘Congratulations!! Very happy for you and what the future holds!’

It’s understandable that Denise’s followers are a little shocked by the wedding news. Just a few days before, People reported that Denise and Aaron were engaged with the intention of getting married as soon as possible.

However, no one expected this would mean within days of the announcement!

A source told People: ‘Aaron and Denise just got engaged and would love to be married sooner than later now that his divorce is finally in his past. The engagement has been a long time coming. He moved on from his past relationship a long time ago, and marrying Denise is a welcome new chapter for both of them in different but equally significant ways.’

Aaron was married to Nicollette Sheridan for six months before their divorce was finalised in August.

Clearly Denise and Aaron meant what they said about getting married imminently, as Denise only gave her dress designer Mark Zunino 24 hours to create the gown.

Mum-of-three Denise has two children with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen, 14-year-old Sam and 13-year-old Lola.

Metro report that Charlie was invited to the wedding but it is thought that he did not take up the offer. Sam and Lola were bridesmaids at the wedding alongside their adopted sister, seven-year-old Eloise.

The couple are yet to post any pictures from their big day on their own social media but for those of you who love to watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you’ll be glad to learn that Denise’s big day and the build up to the wedding will be featured in the new series.

So you’ll be able to watch all of the excitement unfold!

Congratulations to Aaron and Denise!
