Congratulations may be in order for Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup.

The pair fueled marriage rumors Friday as they were spotted wearing matching wedding rings while returning to their New York City apartment.

Watts, 54, looked every bit a bride in an Oscar de la Renta Sweetheart Water Lilly Guipure Dress with a bouquet of white flowers in hand. Her gold wedding band was visible under her massive sparkler.

Meanwhile, Crudup, also 54, did most of the heavy lifting as he carried their duffle bags inside while wearing a navy blue suit, white button-up shirt and silver wedding band.

While it’s unclear where the pair was coming from, the actress certainly had a newly-wed glow as she beamed from ear to ear while walking a few paces behind her possible-now husband.

Reps for the couple did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

The couple has kept most of their love life out of the public eye, often playing coy about the extent of their relationship status.

In fact, while appearing on the “Today” show in April, the “King Kong” actress dodged questions about the massive sparkler she was rocking on her left ring finger.

When host Hoda Kotb drew attention to the “beautiful” ring, Watts only laughed before co-host Savannah Guthrie jumped in with the hard-hitting questions.

“Hoda is asking if you’re engaged,” Guthrie asked bluntly. However, the actress avoided answering, jokingly blaming her “brain fog.”

Watts and the “Morning Show” star confirmed their relationship in 2017 while filming Netflix’s psychosexual drama “Gypsy” together. Page Six was the first to report that Watts and Crudup were spotted holding hands in Tribeca. 

However, they didn’t make their red carpet-debut until 2022 at the SAG Awards.

Prior to meeting Crudup, Watts dated Liev Schrieber for 11 years. The pair, who split in 2016, share two children — Sasha, 15, and Kai, 14.

Meanwhile, Crudup shares 19-year-old son William with ex Mary-Louise Parker, whom he left at seven months pregnant for Claire Danes.
