Alan Rickman is married to his long-term partner Rima Horton after a secret ceremony in New York.
Speaking to German magazine, Bild, when questioned about the success of his 40-year relationship sans marriage Rickman answered "We are married. Only recently."
The Harry Potter actor revealed that the pair had a private ceremony in New York followed by a wedding breakfast in Brooklyn. "It was great because no one was there." He added, "After the wedding in New York, we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and ate lunch."
E News! has reported that the couple made it official three years ago, and have managed to keep it out of the spotlight, partly because neither of them wear a wedding ring. In the interview, Alan told the Bild reporter that he bought Rima a wedding ring which "she never wears."
Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Rickman!
