It seems that congratulations are in order for Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy. The two are said to have gotten married in a small and intimate ceremony that took place in Manhattan. The news was reported by Page Six, which indicated that the banker and the actress wedded on Friday night.
The report indicated that only very close friends and family attended the happy event, which is believed to have taken place at a private residence. So, insiders said that about 50 people were in the attendance. Some sources claimed that for Mary-Kate and Olivier it was really important to keep the event private, thus, they actually asked all their guests to turn in their phones before entering the venue.
The 29 year old actress and the 46 year old banker first started to date back in 2012. The pair has not confirmed their intentions to wed, although it has previously been reported that Olivier had proposed to his girlfriend with a 4-carat vintage Cartier diamond ring. They are believed to have gotten engaged in February, 2014. Mary-Kate and Olivier live together in an impressive house in New York City, which is estimated to cost $6.25 million.
Well, if the rumors will turn out being true, this actually is the first wedding for Mary-Kate, but the second for Olivier, who is the half-brother for Nicolas Sarkozy, the former President of France. Olivier was previously married to Charlotte Bernard. The two have two children together. An insider previously said that Mary-Kate has actually helped her now husband become a better father to his two children.
“Mary-Kate has made him a better father. She remembers all the kids’ special events,” an insider said according to US magazine. “She thinks he’s a great dad,” the same source added. It has not been revealed if Olivier’s children or if his half-brother attended the wedding ceremony. Both his and Mary-Kate’s parents were in the attendance at the happy event.
It has previously been revealed that Mary-Kate’s family, including both her parents and her siblings, really like Olivier, believing that he is the best thing that could have happened to her.
