After dating for more than five years, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are married.
A spokeswoman for Minnillo confirms that the couple wed Friday. People magazine first reported the nuptials.
“For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that’s to start a family together,” the newly named “Wipeout” TV host said in a statement to People, which first reported the news of the couple’s nuptials.
Around 35 friends and family of the former 98 Degrees boy band star — decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana suit — and his TV host bride – dressed in a lace Monique Lhuillierr detailed gown — watched the pair marry on Friday evening on a tropical island.
Vanessa told the mag that they managed to keep the details surrounding their wedding a secret – even from their guests.
This is the second marriage for Lachey, who finalized his divorce from Jessica Simpson in 2006.
Unlike his last marriage that many speculate ended thanks to the popular MTV reality show “Newlyweds,” there won’t be any cameras in this couple’s first year of marriage. Although the nuptials were filmed for a TV special, so that would seem to account for cameras during the first year in some way.
“Just to clear the air on this, Vanessa and I are doing a one time wedding special for TLC, NOT a reality series. Gonna be special!” he tweeted last month.
Their wedding will be televised on a TLC’s special titled “Nick & Vanessa’s Dream Wedding,” which premieres July 30.
