Cheryl Cole has married Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

The 'Fight For This Love' hitmaker was believed to have wed her French restaurateur boyfriend in a secret ceremony a week ago(07.07.14) and took to the internet to confirm the news via her Instagram account.

She wrote along with a photo of a sparkling diamond on her ring finger: ''I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news... Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14.. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.. (sic).''

A source told The Sun newspaper that the wedding was a small affair with the pair tying the knot in front of just four guests including her mother Joan Callaghan.

The ceremony is reported to have taken place on the island of Mustique, in the West Indies.

Cheryl, 31 - who has been dating Jean-Bernard for just three months - moved him into her UK mansion after they went public with their relationship at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

The stunning brunette was previously married to England soccer player Ashley Cole and dated dancer Derek Hough and singer Tre Holloway following their divorce in 2010.
