The Internet Is Quite Shocked About Cheryl Cole’s Secret New Marriage

So…will she stop using her ex-husband’s surname now? So confused.

Cheryl Cole surprised her fans by announcing she secretly married her French boyfriend, Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini, last week.

She wrote: “I usually do not discuss my personal life but to stop the speculation I want to share my happy news. Jean-Bernard and I married on 7/7/14. We are very happy and excited to move forward with our lives together.”

This is what he looks like, by the way. Because, you know, she only met him three months ago.


And now it’s become quite the talking point.
