LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian Get Married

Country singer LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have tied the knot in a surprise ceremony that even guests and family had no idea was going to happen.

Rimes’ spokesman, Rhett Usry, confirmed to People.com that the wedding indeed took place on Friday. “LeAnn and Eddie were happily married today surrounded by their closest family and friends,” Usry said. “They thank everyone for their well wishes.” According to People, Rimes and Cibrian had initially told their closest friends and family that the event was only an engagement party. The couple were officially engaged in December.

Rimes and Cibrian have received a lot of criticism for their relationship, which started as an extra-marital affair in 2009. At the time, Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet, while Cibrian was in an eight-year marriage with Brandi Glanville, with whom the “Northern Lights” star has two sons. Rimes and Sheremet separated in July 2009 and their divorce was finalized about a year later. On the other hand, Cibrian, 37, filed for divorce in August 2009, and his marriage to Glanville was officially dissolved in September 2010.
