Country singer LeAnn Rimes and actor Eddie Cibrian surprised their friends and family who believed they were coming to an engagement party on Friday, but it was their wedding instead!
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian threw what was supposed to be an engagement party for around 40 guests, but instead the couple surprised everyone by tying the knot.
LeAnn and Eddie tied the knot at a home in California over the weekend.
“LeAnn and Eddie were happily married today surrounded by their closest family and friends,” Rimes’ spokesman revealed. “They thank everyone for their well wishes.”
This is the second trip down the aisle for both Eddie and LeAnn, who met and had an affair while filming the movie “Northern Lights” for the Lifetime network.
At that time Cibrian was married to makeup artist Brandi Glanville (who he has two children with) and Rimes was betrothed to former backup dancer Dean Sheremet.
But all the controversy didn’t stop the couple from enjoying their surprise wedding.
“Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes,” Rimes tweeted. “We are blessed and…. I’m Mrs. Cibrian!!!!! So wonderful to wake up as husband and wife. Love to all of you.”
The country singer’s ex-husband had only positive things to say, wishing LeAnn well. Sheremet said to the press, “LeAnn was a huge part of my life so I wish her the best.”
