Surprise or secret nuptials always make for fun and colorful teatime. Celebrities that get hitched without saying a word until months later or days later, you have to admit, makes for better publicity than the planned weddings we know about months in advance. Boring!
Anyhoo, the deets are spilled on past and present surprise and secret celebrity marriages. And by the way, we’re keeping our eye on Halle Berry whom sources say will get hitched to Olivier Martinez, the father of her second, soon-to-be born child, this very weekend… Hope we didn’t spoil the fun! Updated on 7/14: Berry and Martinez did tie the knot. Congrats!
