The couple, who married in a low-key ceremony last August, recently purchased a three-bedroom, three-bathroom house in West Hollywood for $872,500.

The 'Bridesmaids' star and the British TV star turned author's new 1,800 square-foot property also boasts a swimming pool and a spa, according to gossip website

The Irish actor previously revealed he used to take baths with Jason Segel when he moved in to the 'How I Met Your Mother' star's house for a month because he didn't have his own place to stay while he was filming in Hollywood.

The 33-year-old 'Girls' star previously said: "We'd do lunch a lot! And we'd take baths together. You know, so we don't use so much water."

The actor became a household name starring in UK TV sitcom 'The I.T. Crowd' in 2006 and is relieved he has had a gradual path to stardom.

He said: "The fame thing has happened very gradually, so I've been kind of lucky. I don't know how I would have dealt with it if I had been one of the 'Twilight' guys. To be 21 and that famous would be terrifying."
