Kimora Lee Simmons secretly married her banker beau Tim Leissner, a source confirms to E! News.

While Kimora, 38, and Leissner have yet to announce their marriage, her ex-husband Russell Simmons was the one to initially spill the beans on Twitter!

Russell tweeted earlier today to call our a gossip blogger, writing, "All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married. . Tim is has been family for a while now. #gossipcop...." He followed up with, "Oh. And.. Tim is not Russian. Lol."


Meanwhile, Kimora and Leissner, who works in a senior level position at Goldman Sachs, were photographed back in December during their annual holiday family getaway to St. Barts (perhaps they had a Caribbean wedding?).

The lovebirds, who were both sporting rings on their left ring fingers, were all smiles while walking around the beach with her three kids, Ming Lee Simmons, Aoki Lee Simmons and Kenzo, her son with ex Djimon Hounsou. Russell was also on the family trip.

Kimora's rep didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

Congrats to the newlyweds!
