"They just had a few guests, who were at the resort, and their baby."

A spokesperson for the chef confirmed he and Stephanie, who is around 20 years his junior, had decided to "seize the moment" and got married.

The representative said: "Heston and Stephanie are delighted to announce they've got married.

"They were spending some quality time together and decided to seize the moment."

It was revealed in February that the couple had welcomed a child into the world together late last year, but no details about the tot, including their name or gender, have been revealed.

His spokesperson said at the time: "I can confirm Heston and Stephanie have had a child at the end of last year, but we won't be giving any further information."

The culinary expert already has three children with ex-wife Zanna;

Zack, 25, Jessie, 22, and Joy, 20.

Heston split from Zanna in 2011 and their divorce was finalised last year.

Prior to finding love with Stephanie, he was in a five-year relationship with American cookery book author Suzanne Pirret.
