What a purr-fect day to spill a big secret.
E! News' own Catt Sadler tied the knot with U.K. film producer Rhys David Thomas in a super-private ceremony in Las Vegas, E! can exclusively report.
Sadler tells us that they are planning a destination wedding in the Caribbean this June so that close friends and family members from both sides of the pond can share in the occasion. So, that begs the question…
Why elope in the first place?
"We married for love," Sadler says simply. "We truly didn't have the desire for the massive production that goes along with a big wedding. It was about the simplicity of our love and devotion to one another."
She and Thomas swapped vows in a candlelit ceremony in their suite at the Palazzo on Oct. 23. But even though their engagement was on the down-low, Thomas still made quite the statement: He presented Sadler with a four-plus carat Tacori diamond ring, set in a diamond-and-platinum eternity band, that he helped design.
This is Sadler's second marriage. She has two sons, 6-year-old Arion and 10-year-old Austin, with her ex-husband.
And how do the boys feel about their new stepdad, whom their mom met at a charity event on Cinco De Mayo in 2010?
"My two children genuinely adore Rhys—and enjoy teasing him about his accent, naturally," Sadler tells E! News. "It's simple; our family is now complete."
"What makes our relationship even sweeter," she adds, "is just how close Rhys, my ex-husband, his wife and I all are. We are embracing the beauty of the modern family and our children are really reaping the benefits."
Sounds like a storybook ending for all. Congrats, Catt!
