Cheryl Cole has married her French boyfriend following a three-month romance, it was revealed yesterday.
The singer has double reason to celebrate this morning. Not only has she wed Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after dating for only twelve weeks, but she has managed to keep the news secret from a curious media for a whole week.
Cheryl confirmed the news herself via her Instagram account, saying:
"I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news. Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together."
And, to the delight of her fans, she also shared a pic of her brand new engagement and wedding rings...
According to diamond jewellery expert Lewis Malka, the engagement ring is a 5-carat, emerald-cut, diamod ring, enhanced with trapezium cut diamonds on the shoulders, in a platinum claw-set ring.
As for the slim wedding band that ALREADY sits alongside the engagement ring, Lewis describes that as "pave set with diamonds all the way around. Very chic".
Bernard-Henri is a restaurant businessman, whom Cheryl met in May at the Cannes Film Festival. The pair have been snapped together ever since, and Cheryl is reported to be "smitten" with her new man.
Her last public romance was with Tre Holloway, a dancer on her tour, and this followed her divorce from footballer Ashley Cole, and a fling with dancer Derek Hough, who was with her in Africa when she caught malaria.
Her second wedding sounds very different from her first, which was splashed all over the pages of OK! magazine. This time, she opted for a secret, intimate ceremony on the sandy beach of the island of Mustique, in front of only a handful of close friends and family.
