How's this for a secret wedding? According to People, Barry Manilow married his longtime manager Garry Kief in a private commitment ceremony at the singer's Palm Springs home — last year!

"It was a surprise," a friend of the couple told People of the nuptials, which "20 to 30 guests" attended. If you think you're shocked, imagine how those friends and family felt: They were all told they were attending a "lunch"! Even better? Three's Company star Suzanne Somers, Manilow's friend and neighbor, served as his "best man."

"Barry has lived a very secretive life and the wedding was no different! Barry and Garry did not tell friends or family that the occasion was their wedding," National Enquirer reported this morning. "It was a beautiful wedding and consummated their lifelong love affair."

A source added that the duo didn't sign any paperwork, but they do both wear wedding rings and that they "are committed to one another and have been for a very long time. They have a great relationship. Garry has always been there for Barry."

The "Mandy" and "Copacabana" crooner was briefly married to a woman in the '60s but remained tight-lipped about his relationship status or sexual orientation after. Now that he's found everlasting love, though, things have changed.

"He's at a point now where he's got his career and personal life in a great place and he really doesn't care what people think," the source told People. "He's in love and happy."
