The Big Brother star’s reps confirmed the news to Metro.co.uk, explaining the happy couple jetted jetted out to Dubai to say their ‘I dos’, joined just by friends and family members.
According to reports, the 35-year-old made sure her four sons – including their newborn, Ronnie, and Archie, Harry and George, whom she shares with ex Jamie O’Hara – were involved in the big day.
An insider revealed the nuptials were ‘romantic and lavish’.
‘It was a small wedding. All the boys were involved and everyone watching was in tears,’ they told the Sun.
‘They got married on the beach in front of the Burj Al Arab hotel as the sun went down.’
The happy couple got engaged in 2016, after around six months together.

Their wedding was pushed back after the model fell pregnant with her fourth son – and first with the 31-year-old.
The former glamour model walked down the aisle for the second time, after her first marriage – to footballer Jamie O’Hara – came to an end in 2014.
Danielle recently made headlines after opening up on expanding her brood with Michael, explaining she is planning on heading to Dubai to undergo gender selection for her next baby, in a bid to have a girl.
‘It’s always something I’ve wanted to do, I want a little girl; how long can I continue to have boys?’ she told Metro.co.uk when discussing the procedure, which is currently illegal in the UK.
The method, also known as Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis, involves extracting eggs and fertilising them, turning them into embryos. These are then separated by sex, with the desired one – female for Danielle – later implanted in her womb.
‘Surgeons in this country offered to do it elsewhere, and people were telling me to go Cyprus – but one was telling me it was dangerous there because they “mix up the sperm” and I’ve heard horror stories,’ she continued.
‘You’ve really got to be careful and I had to make sure I was getting advice in the right places. We’ve found a place in Dubai, which is strange because you’d think they’d have strict rules, but they often do it in their country to get boys. Let’s hope they get it right and I don’t have another boy!’
Congratulations to the happy couple!
