The Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi has married his girlfriend Amanda De Cadenet in a secret ceremony on Harbour Island in the Bahamas.
The New York rocker and British TV presenter-turned-photographer made the announcement in yesterday's Hello! Magazine in Britain, but have not disclosed the date of their wedding.
It's the first marriage for 25-year-old Valensi, while De Cadenet, 34, has a 14-year-old daughter Atlanta with ex-husband, Duran Duran bassist John Taylor.
De Cadenet - who is pregnant with twins - had a wedding dress designed by designer Marc Jacobs, but her baby bump had grown so big she ended up getting married barefoot in a beach dress.
De Cadenet says the couple decided to wed in a hurry during a brief break between The Strokes' world tour, so weren't able to invite their respective families.
She says: "We've been together for five years and wanting to get married for two. It wasn't as if we felt we had to do this because of the twins. They and the wedding are two entirely separate large events, neither of which was made easier by Nick being away on a world tour.
"He's probably only spent ten days in New York this last year, so quite how we managed to get pregnant I don't know!
"I called my mum, brother and father when I got to Nassau airport and they weren't hugely surprised.
"I'm really pleased it was just me and Nick at our wedding, because I cried the whole time."
