Cheryl Cole has revealed she held a secret wedding last week, tying the knot with Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini – after a mere three months of dating.
The musician and X-Factor judge took to Instagram to share the news with a photo of her ring. She wrote, "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."
The marriage is Cole's second. In 2006 she married soccer pro Ashley Cole after a year of dating, but she filed for divorce in 2010. She kept Ashley's last name, telling The Guardian, "I don't feel sentimental about the name. If I went back to being Cheryl Tweedy, I'd be… I'm not ashamed of my marriage, it's a period in my life. And I am Cheryl Cole."
