Renee Zellweger has stunned Hollywood by marrying her country sweetheart Kenny Chesney.

Details are sketchy, but it's reported the CHICAGO star and her new man exchanged vows yesterday (09MAY05) on the Caribbean island of St Johns, where Chesney has a holiday home.

Chesney, 37, jetted off to make Zellweger his bride after performing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday (07MAY05). He's expected back on stage in Little Rock, Arkansas, on Thursday (12MAY05).

Since her 2000 engagement to Jim Carrey, the actress has dated a string of rockers and musicians, including the WHITE STRIPES' JACK WHITE and Irish singer/songwriter Damien Rice.

Country superstar Chesney and his new blushing bride were romantically linked for the first time earlier this month (MAY05) when the BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY star was spotted kissing her new beau at one of his shows.

It's the first marriage for both stars.
