Iker Casillas, the World Cup-winning goalkeeper, has secretly married his sports reporter girlfriend Sara Carbonero.
The TV reporter and the former Real Madrid goalkeeper are currently expecting their second child and reportedly got married on March 20.
The ceremony which was a simple civil affair took place in the Madrid suburban town of Boadilla del Monte.
According to a report in Spain, the couple wanted to keep the news secret until the summer, when they thought to tell family and friends at a special party.
The couple had started a relationship in 2010 and were at the centre of a media frenzy when the Spanish captain kissed his reporter girlfriend on the lips during a live interview after his team’s World Cup win.
