MALIBU, Calif. -- LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are now husband and wife!
The couple tied the knot on Friday, LeAnn confirmed on her Twitter page on Saturday morning.
“Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes. We are blessed and…. I’m Mrs. Cibrian!!!!! So wonderful to wake up as husband and wife. Love to all of you,” she Tweeted.
She also updated her personal bio on the site to reflect her nuptial news.
“WIFE, Bonus Mom, Friend, Daughter, Caretaker To Everyone I Love Dearly, Incredibly Happy Woman….oh yeah, and I do this little thing called music and film,” she wrote.
The bride wore a gorgeous Reem Acra gown as the couple wed in front of an intimate gathering of about 40 guests at a private California residence, according to People.
LeAnn, 28, and Eddie, 37, announced their engagement back in December, when the country star confirmed the news on her Twitter page.
“For those who haven’t read, Eddie and I got engaged over the holidays. That’s the news. It’s for real this tine [sic] and the first time EVER!” she Tweeted at the time.
This marks the second marriage for both LeAnn and Eddie.
The couple met while filming the Lifetime TV movie, “Northern Lights” — both stars were married to other people at the time.
LeAnn’s now ex-husband, Dean Sheremet, filed for divorce from the country star on December 17, 2009, citing “irreconcilable differences,” after LeAnn was linked to a then-married Eddie.
LeAnn and Dean’s divorce was finalized on June 19, 2010.
Eddie filed for divorce from then-wife Brandi Glanville in August 2009, also citing “irreconcilable differences.” The divorce was finalized in October 2010.
Eddie and Brandi have two sons together – Mason, 7, and Jake, 4 – both of whom were in attendance for LeAnn and Eddie’s wedding on Friday.
