Saturday, rapper/actress Eve tied the knot with long time beau, Gumball 3000 founder Max Cooper. The two had a beautiful beach wedding that was officiated by none other than Bun B.
The two spent the past week ”racing” towards the aisle! Eve and Cooper took part in his annual Gumball 3000 rally. The rapper said they planned to wed after the international event, which ended on Saturday.
They first met at the 2010 event. Cooper said the two have “been together every day since.” The Gumball 3000 website dubs Eve the “First Lady of Gumball.”
According to reports, the pair exchanged their vows in front of family and friends Saturday night at Blue Marlin beach club at Cala Jondal Beach in Ibiza, Spain. Eve looked stunning as she walked down the aisle in an intricate lace halter wedding dress by Alice Temperley and she couldn’t have been any happier.
While Ibiza is most certainly a beautiful location to get hitched, the couple actually chose the exotic destination for a totally different reason. Max revealed:
We met on the 2010 Gumball 3000 rally so it only seemed right to have the wedding at the finish of this years rally in Ibiza, which was the final stop on this years event. We couldn’t be happier to celebrate such a special day with all our family and friends.
The couple have already released a joint statement, expressing their joy while thanking well wishers:
We are beyond happy to celebrate our marriage with all of our friends and family and start our journey in our new life together. It’s been such an amazing experience and we are happier than we ever thought we could be. Thanks for the well wishes.
The 41-year-old father of three asked Eve to marry him Christmas Day of last year after three years of dating.
Eve told E! News on Wednesday that they are “the coolest, sweetest kids” and that she would like to have two of her own with Cooper.
