After dating since 2008, Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs have finally exchanged wedding vows on New Year's Day.
Country music singer Kellie Pickler joined the New Year new wives club by ringing in 2011 as a married woman. The former "American Idol" star secretly exchanged vows with her songwriter beau Kyle Jacobs on January 1.
Pickler accepted Jacobs' proposal back in June 2010 and now her representative has confirmed the couple eloped over the holiday weekend and wed on a private island in the Caribbean. The couple has been dating since 2008.
On Twitter, Pickler wrote, "Yes, it's true, @kylecjacobs and I said "I Do!" Thank you Jesus!" She updated later on, "Private Island. Caribbean. Cigar in one hand, Rum in the other. Someone just called me "Mrs. Jacobs."....sounds nice :)"
