Just call Cher Lloyd the anti-Kim Kardashian.
The British pop star shocked fans this week by marrying hairdresser Craig Monk in a super secret ceremony Monday. A rep for the artist confirms the event took place, but simply says in a statement:
“Cher and Craig are married but all other details are private.”
The bride did at least share a photo from the wedding on Instagram and added via Twitter yesterday:
“Thank you for all your lovely messages. I’m so happy!”
Monk and Lloyd have been dating since 2011 and met when the former fitted the latter for hair extensions. They announced their engagement in January of 2012.
Among those excited for the singer? Cheryl Cole, who congratulated her former protege on Great Britain’s The X Factor by Tweeting:
“Wow!! Heard your good news. Congratulations @CherLloyd I hope you have many more happy years and memories to come.”
We echo that sentiment. Hooray for the newlyweds!!!
