Talk about an amicable ex! Kimora Lee Simmons' secret wedding to investment banker Tim Leissner was revealed by none other than Simmons' ex-husband, hip hop and business mogul Russell Simmons.

"All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married. Tim has been family for a while now. #gossipcop...." Russell Simmons tweeted on Wednesday.

As it turns out, the only reason he dropped the wedding bomb is because of rumors that Kimora, a former model, was dating someone else. Rapper Birdman had posted a photo of himself and Kimora on Instagram with the caption, "S/O @OfficialKimora luv of my life. Thank u 4 everythang u did and do 4 me RICHGIRL RICHGANG."

It really does sound like everyone loves her! For our part, we're enamored by her ability to have a top-secret wedding. Celebrities like Adam Brody and Leighton Meester have perfected the science of tying the knot incognito, and while we love nothing more than a highly-publicized event (ahem, Kimye), there's something truly romantic about a commitment to keeping nuptials completely private.

Simmons and Leissner began dating last year, not long after she and Djimon Hounsou, her partner of five years with whom she has a son, broke up. She also has two daughters with Simmons.

Though we don't yet know exactly where or when she and Leissner got hitched, we would put money on a destination wedding. The couple was spotted wearing matching rings in St. Barts over Christmas while they vacationed with her three children. Everything about that sounds like a dream getaway!

However and whenever it happened, congratulations to the happy couple!
