Nick Lachey tied the knot in secret

Nick Lachey and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo reportedly got married in a secret ceremony in the Bahamas this weekend.

The former Newlyweds star and the MTV presenter are rumoured to have tied the knot in front of close friends and family at one of the Bahamas’ Carlyle Hotels.

A source claimed: ‘Vanessa’s entourage of hair and make-up artists and dressers arrived at the secret location on Friday (07.12.07) to prepare for the wedding.’

However, a representative for Nick denied the pair had wed, saying: ‘Nick was in his hometown of Cincinnati last weekend working on his new NBC show Clash of the Choirs, as well as another show he is producing for MTV.’

Nick’s ex-wife Jessica Simpson filed for divorce in 2005, after three years together.

Their married life was filmed by MTV for their reality TV show Newlyweds.

Jessica is now dating American footballer Tony Romo after her father-and-manager Joe Simpson introduced them.
