Iraheta Married to Fellow Band Member Matthew Hager

Allison Iraheta is a married woman…

The 21-year-old Salvadoran American singer and American Idol finalist has married her Halo Circus bandmate Matthew Hager, her new husband has confirmed to Yahoo!‘s Reality Rocks.

Allison Iraheta

“Best thing I’ve ever done,” says the new groom.

News that Iraheta and Hager quietly eloped back in January broke this Tuesday, via The Hollywood Reporter.

The couple’s Halo Circus played their first online performance ever in February, for Yahoo! Music, but made no mention of tying the knot at that time.

Iraheta was 16 years old when she competed on Idol, so it may be hard to picture the red-haired rocker as a married woman. But allgrown up now.

Her new husband, a multi-instrumentalist and producer who’s worked with Mandy Moore, the Backstreet Boys, Duran Duran, Scott Weiland, and others, is slightly older than her — THR reports that he graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 1991 — but the two seem extremely well-matched, both personally and professionally.

“RHOM” Star De Moura Weds French Entrepreneur Frederic Marq

Adriana De Moura is officially a housewife again…

The Brazilian Real Housewives of Miami star married French entrepreneur and billionaire Frederic Marq on Friday, May 17.

Adriana De Moura

De Moura and Marq got hitched at the Coral Gables Congregational Church in Florida.

Wearing a grey rhinestone-embroidered one-sleeve princess gown with a tulle skirt, De Moura exchanged vows with Marq in front of 50 of their closest family and friends, including her costars Marysol Patton, Lisa Hochstein and Alexia Echevarria, who served as bridesmaids and escorted her to the church.

“I’m excited and overwhelmed!” De Moura told Life & Style. “There were butterflies in my stomach but I finally had my dream wedding with my French amour de ma vie!”

The couple met in 2008 and decided to legalize their relationship on the season finale of Real Housewives of Miami last year. The pair’s wedding invitation made headlines earlier this month as they required all guests to “arrive in elegant, all white, royal ascot-inspired” dress to the ceremony.

For their reception at Biltmore Hotel, guests were instructed to wear “beautiful Art Deco gowns and tuxedos from Downton Abbey or The Great Gatsby.”

Marq is a successful interior designer and hotel developer whose net worth is $15 million. He owns and operates Frederic Marq Design and has been described as “one of the most talented interior designers in Florida.”

The Vicky Cristina Barcelona actress was by her sister’s side when she went into labor. Their mother, Encarna, and brother, Eduardo Cruz, also paid a visit to give their support.

Monica announced her pregnancy in January. She decided to be a single mother by turning to an anonymous sperm donor out of fear that it would “too late for motherhood” by the time she found her perfect partner.

“I am going to be a mother! I have managed to fulfill the dream of a lifetime,” she blogged. “To become pregnant, I turned to artificial insemination…I want to tell, also, so I can have the opportunity to show my thanks to all those anonymous men that give many women like me, the dream of their lives.”
