Fashion designer and film director Tom Ford is celebrating life as a newlywed. According to US Weekly on April 8, Ford revealed that he has married his longtime partner, Richard Buckley.

The two tied the knot after being together for 27 years and kept the marriage ceremony and details low key. Ford casually mentioned the nuptials in a conversation with British writer Lady Kinvara Balfour.

"We are now married, which is nice. I know that was just made legal in the UK, which is great. We were married in the States.'

Buckley, who Ford met at a fashion show in 1986, is a journalist and former Vogue editor. Once the two met, it was love at first sight. Ford has expressed that love over and over again and in a 2011 interview with Out magazine, the former Gucci creative director talked just how deep in love the two are and how much of a connection they have formed.

"You can look at someone and feel like you've known him forever. The first night I ever had drinks with Richard I felt I knew everything about him."

That is the kind of love two individuals are lucky to have and now they have sealed that connection with marriage.

The two have a young son, Alexander John Buckley Ford, who they welcomed in October 2012.

Congratulations to Tom Ford and Richard Buckley.
