Tom Ford Secretly Wed Richard Buckley, His Partner of 27 Years (VIDEO)

He may have directed A Single Man, but Tom Ford won't call himself one anytime soon!

The 52-year-old fashion designer recently married former Vogue editor Richard Buckley, 65 — and he only announced their union yesterday, April 7, at an Apple Store talk in London.

"We are now married, which is nice," Tom revealed, per Us Weekly, before showing the audience his new ring. "I know that was just made legal in the UK, which is great. We were married in the States."

Though they just tied the knot recently, Tom and Richard have been together for 27 years now, and they have a two-year-old son together.

Tom raved about Richard in a 2011 Out essay: "You can look at someone and feel like you've known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him. He has the wildest eyes … They give away absolutely nothing, yet they are completely mesmerizing."

Tom also told the magazine that he first encountered Richard at a fashion show in 1986 — and met him again in a very fateful elevator ten days later.

"I decided in that elevator ride that I was going to marry him. I'm very pragmatic, and I was, like, OK, there's some kind of connection here. He ticked every box, and — boom — by the time we got to the floor, I was like, OK, sold. He seemed so together."

And now they're so together! Congrats to the groom and groom.
