It looks like Jewel missed the magical 08/08/08 wedding date by one day! Jewel and her boyfriend Ty Murray tied the knot in the Bahamas on Thursday night, reports. The ceremony came as a surprise to all—on her Web site, Jewel simply said that she was "excited" about her "6 day vacation" to the island. The singer wore a traditional wedding dress, and rodeo champion Ty donned a cowboy hat, his favorite blue jeans and a white shirt. The newlyweds, who have dated for ten years, live on a ranch in Stephenville, Texas. "The couple is very happy and look forward to enjoying their honeymoon," says Jewel's rep.

While reps for both celebs have declined to confirm the news, Deyn was seen wearing a diamond ring on her ring finger back on June 20 at the Songwriters Hall of Fame awards gala. —Kathryn Papanek and Cari Wolfert
