When it comes to Hollywood weddings, not everybody is Kim and Kayne. Some people prefer to keep their big day under wraps, and Cheryl Cole is one of those people. As the latest celeb to join the secret celeb weddings club, the British pop star and former Girls Aloud member took to Instagram on June 13 to make a very important announcement: She’s married!
And if this turn of events comes as a shock to you, don’t worry — we’re a little surprised, too! Cheryl and her new husband, restaurateur Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, have only been dating since April. But when you know, you know, right? And it sounds like it was a beautiful wedding.
European media (via E! News) describes their nuptials as very private and secluded. Reportedly, only four guests witnessed Cheryl and Jean-Bernard say “I Do” on a beach on Mustique Island on July 7.
Cheryl’s official announcement on Instagram came with a photo of her glacier-sized engagement ring, paired with a diamond studded wedding band. Hold on, we need a minute to take in this ice cube she’s wearing on her finger!
“I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news,” the 31-year-old bride wrote. “Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.”
