T.I. has made an honest man of himself.
The rapper quietly the tied the knot with Tameka "Tiny" Cottle today in Miami Beach, according to Miami-Dade County's marriage license records.
This appears to be the first trip down the aisle for T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr. He and Cottle have two sons together, plus he has three children from previous relationships.
But since it took this long for T.I. to settle down, he figures he may as well do it right.
According to Us Weekly, the newlyweds will swap vows again Saturday, this time in front of family and friends, on a private island off the coast of Miami. Cottle will dress for the occasion in Valentino.
Then, per the mag, it's off to Atlanta for a big hometown reception Saturday afternoon, and then T.I. and Tiny will jet off to Las Vegas to celebrate glam-hip-hop-style into the wee hours.
The platinum-selling artist made a triumphant return to live performing at the 2010 BET Awards last month, his first TV appearance after spending 10 months in jail and a halfway house on a federal weapons charge.
