Heston Blumenthal secretly marries girlfriend in intimate Maldives beach wedding
Heston Blumenthal has secretly married the mum of his baby daughter, it emerged tonight.
The TV chef tied the knot with French girlfriend Stephanie Gouveia during a holiday in the Maldives.
The surprise nuptials came after claims the couple’s relationship was on the rocks following the birth of their first child together late last year.
The pair reportedly spent time apart while trying to heal rifts and stay together through a rough patch.
The new parents are believed to have jetted off to the hideaway resort of Soneva Fushi where Heston suddenly popped the question to Sophie, who is 20 years his junior.
According to The Sun, the couple seized the moment and married in an intimate sunset beach ceremony with just a handful of guests and their baby girl.
Blumenthal married his first wife Zanna in 1989, and had three children with her, Jack, Jessie and Joy, over the course of a twenty-two year partnership.
The couple, who were married for 28 years, were granted a “quickie divorce” in just 90 seconds in court in 2016, six-and-a-half years after they split.
From 2011 until 2015 he was in a relationship with Suzanne Pirret .
Heston previously paid tribute to ex-wife Zanna for the sacrifices she made while he worked on building his multi-million pound restaurant business.
He told Woman & Home several years ago: "Zanna is the biggest reason for the success of the restaurant.
"She has been the one doing the sacrificing in order to support what I wanted to do."
