Los Angeles, Feb 27 (DPA) Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen and American football star Tom Brady have tied the knot in an intimate California ceremony, news reports said.
The couple married Thursday in a Catholic service in Santa Monica with only close family and friends attending, according to the celebrity news site Usmagazine.com.
The bride, 28, wore a strapless ivory lace gown by Dolce and Gabbana while her three dogs wore matching floral lace collars.
There was no official confirmation from the couple's spokesmen.
Bundchen and Brady, 31, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, have been an item for the past two years, their relationship producing much material for celebrity magazines.
The three-time Superbowl champion split from his last girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, then heavily pregnant, shortly before his relationship with Bundchen became public.
Brady, however, managed to repair his tarnished image by being a devoted dad to now-2-year-old John Edward Thomas Moynahan.
Bundchen, longtime on-off girlfriend of Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, split from the Titanic actor in 2005.
Media speculation over a possible engagement ran wild over the past months. Bundchen denied reports that Brady proposed during a trip in a private jet around Christmas.
In late 2008, the couple bought an $11 million villa in Los Angeles' upmarket Brentwood neighbourhood.
