The 'Sweet Caroline' singer married his manager Katie McNeil in a quiet ceremony over the weekend.
Neil Diamond is married for the third time. The 71-year-old singer wed his manager Katie McNeil, who is 29 years his junior, in a ceremony held on Saturday, April 21 in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. Diamond's representative confirmed the good news to People, saying they swapped vows in front of family and close friends.
This is the third trip down the aisle for Diamond and the first for McNeil. The "Sweet Caroline" crooner was married to childhood sweetheart Jayne Posner from 1963 to 1969 and had two sons with her. His second marriage to production assistant Marcia Murphy ended in 1994 and resulted in two other sons.
Diamond and McNeil announced their engagement in September last year via Twitter. "Good news coming from sunny LA/ and you're the first I want to tell/ Katie & I just got engaged/ and I hope you wish us well," he wrote at the time. He additionally posted a photo of McNeil with the words, "I'm lovestruck."
