Katie Price and Alex Reid have got married after tying the knot in a ceremony at Las Vegas' Wynn Hotel
Katie Price and Alex Reid have got married.
The glamour model and the cage fighter - who have been dating since last July - tied the knot in a ceremony at Las Vegas' Wynn Hotel yesterday afternoon (02.02.10).
The couple announced: "We are very much in love and look forward to the future together. We can't wait to get back and celebrate our marriage with our friends and family who we know fully support our wishes."
A spokesman for Katie and Alex insisted they hadn't signed an exclusive deal with a glossy magazine as their union was based purely on love.
He said: "Their decision to marry has not been made with any pre-conceived commercial plan or media deal in place, and their reason for getting married is purely down to their love for each other."
Katie - who raises three children, Harvey, seven, Junior, four, and two-year-old Princess Tiaamii, with ex-husband Peter Andre - had been keen to wed Alex as soon as the couple arrived in Vegas earlier this week.
Sources claim she didn't even have time to get her wedding dress and sent a group of pals to find her ideal gown.
A source said: "They wanted to have the ceremony as soon as they got to Vegas, but the bridal stores weren't open so she couldn't get a dress.
"She had her fashion team trawling all over town for a gown. In the end she just had to make do."
The couple - who were spotted shopping for rings just hours before the 22-minute ceremony - had recently spoke of their plans to get married this year.
Katie - also known as Jordan - said: "This year I will marry Alex and I'm going to have his kids. I wish I'd met Alex six years ago. He's perfect in every way."
The couple met just weeks after Katie had split from husband Peter.
