Tom Ford and his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley, were recently married in the U.S. in a top-secret ceremony, revealed the designer.

Tom Ford Marries Richard Buckley

Ford, 52, revealed his new marital status while making an appearance at the Regent Street Apple store in London on Monday, reported the New York Daily News.

"We are now married, which is nice," Ford told a reporter at the event. "I know that was just made legal in the UK, which is great, but we were married in the States.”

Perhaps a wedding shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise for the committed pair. Ford previously opened up about how he and Buckley met, and the immediate feeling that they were the ones for each other.

"You can look at someone and feel like you've known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him," Ford had told Out magazine. "It excited me but it also scared me, because I knew he was different and that whatever it was I felt with him was very different from what I'd felt before."

Ford and Buckley, 66, have a two-year-old son together, John Buckley Ford.
