After a long and rocky road, Gloria Govan and Matt Barnes may finally be husband and wife.

The Las Vegas Journal Review reports that the on-again, off-again couple, who called off their grand wedding two years ago at the very last minute, tied the knot in Las Vegas over the weekend. The secret ceremony is rumored to have taken place on Sunday at the historic Little Church of the West, with just a few close friends in attendance. 

The Basketball Wives star and her NBA player husband, who just signed a contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, were in Sin City to celebrate Gloria's sister Laura Govan's birthday on Saturday, and decided to stay the weekend to jump the broom. 

Govan hinted at an impending surprise wedding in an interview with Joy Daily that was released this week. "I think when it happens, everyone will be surprised because I don’t think we will make a big deal out of it," she said coyly. 

While the couple have not yet confirmed the happy news, gossip site did manage to get a copy of their marriage license, dated September 23.
