Price and Reid wed in Vegas

Model Katie Price and her boyfriend Alex Reid have married in Las Vegas, a spokesman for the couple said.

The couple tied the knot in a "private, simple" ceremony in the US resort.

The newlyweds said in a statement: "We are very much in love and look forward to the future together. We can't wait to get back and celebrate our marriage with our friends and family who we know fully support our wishes."

Price, 31, who split from ex-husband Peter Andre in May last year, has been dating cage fighter Reid, 34, for around seven months.

Much of their relationship has been played out in public thanks to a string of TV appearances and extensive newspaper coverage.

A statement from the couple's publicist said: "Their decision to marry has not been made with any pre-conceived commercial plan or media deal in place, and their reason for getting married is purely down to their love for each other."

They are due back in the UK later this week.

Earlier mother-of-three Price - also known as Jordan - used a magazine interview to reveal she had plans to marry Reid, who last week was crowned winner of Celebrity Big Brother.

In an interview with OK!, Price declared: "This year I will marry Alex and I'm going to have his kids."

Asked if she would become Katie Reid, Price said: "I'll change my passport, my cheque book, everything."
