Kellie Pickler has married her boyfriend of two years.

The 'American Idol' singer wed songwriter Kyle Jacobs on New Year's Day (01.01.11) during an intimate ceremony on a private Caribbean island.

The 24-year-old star confirmed the news on twitter, saying it felt nice to be called "Mrs. Jacobs".

She wrote: "Yes, it's true, @kylecjacobs and I said "I Do!" Thank you Jesus.

"Private Island. Caribbean. Cigar in one hand, Rum in the other. Someone just called me "Mrs. Jacobs."....sounds nice :). (sic)"

She also posted a picture of her and Kyle in an embrace and wrote: "crAzy about this man (sic)."

The couple have been dating since 2008, with Kyle popping the question on a beach in Florida last summer.

At the time she said: "It turned out to be the most amazing day of my life. My whole world changed. We both feel like we got my grandmother's blessing."

"I remember saying to Kyle, 'Baby it's like I'm dreaming - but if this isn't real, I'm going to be very upset!' "
