Paloma Faith gets married

The singer is said to have tied the knot with French-born artist Leyman Lahcine after stepping out with a sparkler on her ring finger at The Royal Variety on Friday

The pop star tied the knot with French-born artist LEYMAN LAHCINE this summer after the couple welcomed their first child together in December.

But they had managed to keep the nuptials secret.

A source said: “It’s something Paloma wants to keep private. It was a very intimate and beautiful ceremony in London, with just close friends and family.

“But some of her friends in the industry have recently been talking about Paloma quietly getting married.”

Paloma, who has been dating Leyman for four years, sent the rumour mill into action on Friday when she stepped out with a sparkler on her finger.

The star, who was taking part in The Royal Variety Performance in front of the DUKE and DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE, appeared to be wearing the diamond ring in videos of the night.

But just hours earlier, it was nowhere to be seen as she celebrated new album The Architect going to No1.

My source said: “Paloma isn’t keen for people to know her news but she is extremely happy.”

Last year, the former Voice judge claimed she already saw partner Leyman as her husband - despite not being married to him.

She said: “I feel the fact we’ve got a child together is way more bonding than a piece of paper.

“When I’m like 80, I think I want to get married and try heroin.”

But the singer has already had a taste of marriage.

In July 2005, Paloma Blomfield (her real name) got hitched at Hackney Town Hall in East London to Kiwi chef Rian Haynes.

Paloma filed for divorce in October 2009 and Rian returned to New Zealand but she managed to keep her nuptials secret until 2013 when they were revealed by a newspaper.

I hope she forgives me for breaking her news a little quicker this time.
