Actor 's new wife is an old friend he reconnected and fell in love with after the death of his beloved mother in 2008. The "" star, 40, recently let slip he's a married man after exchanging vows with Michelle Ghent in a small Los Angeles ceremony in January.

The news emerged just months after he split from his actress fiancee Zulay Henao, his co-star in 2009 movie "", and reports suggested his nuptials with Ghent occurred after a whirlwind romance. But Us Weekly magazine reports Howard has known Ghent for years - and he grew close to the 33-year-old while he was mourning the passing of his mum Anita.

A source tells the publication, "They met years ago and reconnected early last year. (They) bonded when she consoled him over the loss of his mother. He feels so lucky."

Howard split from his first wife, Lori McCommas, in 2003 and remarried her in 2005.
