Wow – talk about a whirlwind romance! Cheryl Cole has confirmed that she has secretly married her French boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after just three months of dating!
The X Factor star confirmed that she was off the market with a photo of her ginormous (and previously unseen) engagement ring and wedding band, writing:
“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.”
Sources say that Cheryl, 31, and Jean-Bernard, 33, tied the knot in a super-private ceremony on the gorgeous Macaroni Beach on the island of Mustique. Among the four witnesses were Cheryl’s mother Joan and her PA Lily England.
The couple met at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and have been openly smitten ever since, with the luxury restaurant entrepreneur whisking the singer away for her 31st birthday last month. After her 4-year marriage to footballer Ashley Cole publicly broke down due to infidelity on his part in 2010, Cheryl has made no secret of wishing to get married and start a family with her French beau.
“Only a handful of people knew [about the wedding],” a source has told The Sun. “She’s never been so happy.”
“Cheryl’s madly in love and had no fear about taking the plunge. She’s delighted he’s her new husband and wants to have his babies. It’s a beautiful thing. She’s on cloud nine right now.”
Congratulations to the happy couple – here’s hoping that they have a long and happy future together!
