Neil Diamond has married for a third time after exchanging vows with Katie McNeil on Saturday.
The 71-year-old singer walked down the aisle with his co-manager, who, at 41 is 30 years his junior, at a private location in Los Angeles.
A representative for the star confirmed the happy news to People.com, revealing the wedding was a small affair and involved just close friends and family.
Diamond announced the engagement via Twitter.com in September, and he vowed to tie the knot before he heads out on tour this summer.
Speaking before the nuptials, a source told Britain's Mail on Sunday, "Neil and Katie are ecstatic. She's been bubbling about the wedding for weeks now. It will be a classy affair with close friends and family. Neil got burned financially in the last divorce but he's an old romantic at heart and can't wait to get married again."
The veteran crooner was previously married to his high school sweetheart, teacher Jayne 'Posey' Posner, but they split in 1969 after six years as man and wife. He divorced his second wife Marcia Murphey in 1995. Diamond has two children from each marriage.
