The Desperate Housewives actress and the singer – who got engaged in March 2006 – were seen leaving a New York restaurant both wearing a band on their respective wedding fingers.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: “If they have got married, they’ve kept it very quiet. Michael wasn’t trying to hide his ring, though.”
Michael and Nicollette originally dated in the 90s but split in 1993, before rekindling their romance in 2005.
At the beginning of November reports began circulating that Nicollette was pregnant, so maybe their wedding has been moved forward to accomodate a growing baby bump. Michael Bolton denied the rumours, saying “I am not going to be a father again soon,” and adding that they still had yet to plan a wedding.
Of course, I doubt that any celebrity couple can resist the opportunity to sell the exclusive pictures of their nuptials to a tabloid magazine. Fellow Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria sold the pictures of her wedding to Tony Parker for $2 million. OK! Magazine bought the rights, which probably paid for the wedding and left the couple with some spare change. Which might have been why she got married in the first place, on the date 7/7/07, in order to make some money and raise her public profile. Perhaps it was cash and not true love that drove those vows, which might explain the text message love affair.
Congratulations to Nicollette and Michael, hope you enjoyed your secret special day – and turned a profit.
Picture note by Celebitchy: Nicollette Sheridan and Michael Bolton are shown on 12/7/07 outside of their hotel. There aren’t any clear shots of Bolton’s left hand and it looks like Sheridan is just wearing her engagement ring at that point. Thanks to Splash News for this photo.
