Cheryl Cole married her French boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini a week ago.

The Girls Aloud singer made the announcement that she had tied the knot with Fernandez-Versini on July 7, reported Examiner online.

"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," Cole said in a statement on her website.

The X Factor judge has been ­dating the restaurant owner since April and told friends she is ­delighted to have found love again. The 33-year-old Jean-Bernard is said to be besotted with Cheryl and moved to the US to be with her earlier.

The 31-year-old posted a close-up picture of her wedding ring alongside the statement.

It has been reported that the couple married on a beach on the island of Mustique with just four guests in attendance including Cole's mother Joan Callaghan, but the singer did not give any details about the ceremony.

The X Factor judge was previously married to footballer Ashley Cole. They divorced in 2010.
