Fernando Torres' Secret Marriage Shock: Ceremony Is Not in OK! Magazine

Jamie WardSenior Analyst IMay 29, 2009

Fernando Torres has not only signed a new contract extension with Liverpool recently, he is also now reported to have wed his long-term girlfriend in a secret ceremony.

The Spanish striker has been with his current partner for an impressive eight years already, and the long-term couple are expecting a baby girl this summer. Together since 2001, the childhood sweethearts decided to tie the knot in a small Madrid suburb with only two guests alongside them.

The low-key ceremony was conducted in a small town hall by a local councillor, close to where the 25-year-old was born.

Reported to be earning over £100,000 a week at the club, the normal behaviour for big-money football stars is a lavish and expensive ceremony plastered across every magazine and television programme willing to pay huge amounts for the privilege.

But as many Liverpool and Atletico Madrid supporters already know, Fernando Torres is a little different from your average football superstar, both on and off the pitch.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Fernando Torres, and good luck with the birth of their first child in two months' time.
