UPDATE: The rumors are true! E! News has confirmed that the couple did indeed tie the knot over the weekend. Congrats!


Cat's out of the bag: So You Think You Can Dance's host with the most just might be a missus.

U.K. media are running rampant with reports that Cat Deeley secretly tied the knot with her Irish boyfriend and fellow TV and radio presenter Patrick Kielty in Italy over the weekend. And although a rep for the beautiful Brit is so far keeping mum on the nuptial news, the evidence is stacking up that she is indeed a newlywed.

The Sun was first to trumpet the news, claiming that the duo—alternately nicknamed PatCat or Catrick by British tabloids—tied the knot at Rome's St. Isidore's College Church not far from the Vatican.

According to the tabloid, roughly 60 guests were in attendance at the intimate ceremony and the stars' respective families were only informed of the matrimonial plans a few days in advance. A photo, purportedly taken at the wedding, has surfaced in U.K. newspapers, showing Deeley in a white frilly dress and flowers in her hair.

Among the rumored guests was longtime Deeley pal and rumored bridesmaid, BBC radio DJ Edith Bowman.

"Off on an adventure," Bowman coyly tweeted Friday, following it up on Sunday with a simple, "Best weekend ever. X," and a photo taken on an airplane.

As for Deeley, she perhaps offered a hint as to her marital status last week, posting a photo of herself and Kielty after making the Emmy party rounds.

"And then they lived.... Happily ever," she wrote.

If the deed was really done, it would be the first marriage for both the 35-year-old Fox reality star and her 41-year-old partner, who met back in 2002 while both were involved in the BBC reality show Fame Academy.

As it happens, there was apparently something special in the air on Saturday, as in addition to the speculated vow swap of Deeley and Kielty, Anne Hathaway and Jared Followill also chose the same day to walk down the aisle. Er, but not together.

Congrats, you two all!
