“American Idol” sweetheart Kellie Pickler kicked off the New Year by becoming a newlywed.
The singer and her fiance Kyle Jacobs got married in a surprise getaway wedding on Jan. 1st. The couple exchanged vows in “a small, intimate ceremony on a private island in the Caribbean,” a rep for the singer confirmed to People.
Pickler, 24, and Jacobs, 37, have been dating since 2008 and became engaged in June 2010.
“I’m just so excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with Kyle,” Pickler told Us Weekly after her beau proposed. “I’m so excited that when I am home I get to wake up next to him because no one will love me the way that he does.”
