Neil Young and Daryl Hannah got married? So say their pals on social media

Imagine that: A Hollywood star and a rock icon get married and don't feel obligated to announce it, let alone live-stream it to the world. Thank you, Daryl Hannah and Neil Young.

We still don't know if long-time lovers Young, 72 (stalwart of such immortal bands as Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young), and Hannah, 57 (star of 1984 mermaid rom-com Splash), really are married now, but some of their friends and fans are nevertheless offering effusive congratulations on social media. So let's just go with it.

A London tabloid, The Mirror, was first to pick up on the scent of wedding bouquets, when Hannah posted a cryptic-yet-evocative picture on her Instagram page of a snowy white owl perched in what looks like an old, ramshackle barn.

"Someone's watching over us.... love & only love," Hannah captioned the picture.


The Mirror reported the duo got married Saturday in Atascadero, a city about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and close to the California coast.

This followed an earlier ceremony aboard Young's yacht in the San Juan Islands, the archipelago off the northwest corner of the U.S., according to The Mirror.

Congratulations soon popped up in the comments section under Hannah's caption.

"Yaaaaaaaaaaay in every sense. And so sorry not to be there. Love you," posted CNN commentator Sally Kohn.

"You are the whisperer to all the animals... birds and bees follow you and protect you. What a beautiful time of love and magic," posted Rosanna Arquette.

Over on Facebook, a guitarist named Mark Miller posted congrats, too.

"Congratulations to Daryl Hannah and Neil Young on their wedding today. May they have a long and happy relationship," his post read.

It's not implausible that Young and Hannah would get married: The two have been lovers since at least 2014, when Young and his former wife, Pegi Young, split up after 36 years of marriage and two children.

By that point, People reported, the two had been dating for months and didn't really hide it.

Hannah, who had roles in memorable movies such as Steel Magnolias and Blade Runner, more recently has appeared in the Netflix series Sense8. She's also moved on to making her own films.

A long-time political and environmental activist, she has never been married but was in relationships with another rock star, Jackson Browne, and with the late John F. Kennedy Jr.

In recent years, Hannah has made a splash by getting arrested in anti-pipeline protests in Texas and in Washington, and by being among the scores of women who have accused shamed movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual abuse.

Earlier this year, Young and Hannah merged their professional and personal lives. Young starred in Netflix's Paradox, a film written and directed by Hannah and described by reviewers as "a surreal, whimsical cowboy tale" in which Young heads a gang of outlaws looking for treasure in a post-apocalyptic wilderness.

Reps for the pair have been contacted.
