Eddie Cibrian And LeAnn Rimes get married
Actor Eddie Cibrian and country singer LeAnn Rimes are officially husband and wife. The couple exchanged vows on Friday in front of about 40 guests who had been led to believe they were invited to an engagement party.
Cibrian proposed to the singer/actress in December and the couple invited family and friends to a private residence on Friday to celebrate what they thought was an engagement party.
But the gathering turned out to be the stars’ actual wedding and they exchanged vows in front of around 40 guests, including Cibrian’s sons Mason, seven, and Jake, four, from his previous marriage to Brandi Glanville.
Rimes’ spokesman, Rhett Usry, told People.com on Friday, “LeAnn and Eddie were happily married today surrounded by their closest family and friends. They thank everyone for their well wishes.”
Rimes and Cibrian were both married when they met and fell in love on the set of a TV movie in 2009.
Rimes divorced dancer Dean Sheremet last summer, while Cibrian and Glanville began legal proceedings to end their union in September.
The messy break-ups prompted Glanville to publicly attack Rimes in the press and via Twitter.com, although the two women recently called a truce for the sake of Cibrian’s young sons.
The country star has also admitted she could have handled the split much better.
In a new Great American Country channel special, she says, “I know I didn’t do it the right way. I didn’t have the tools… It got really messy but I have learned a lot from that.
“I’m not glad it happened but I know why it did.”
He’s 37. She’s 28.
