The designer Tom Ford has secretly married his long-term partner Richard Buckley in a ceremony in the US.

The couple, who have been together for 27 years, told the Telegraph: ‘We are now married, which is nice. I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great, but we were married in the States.’

The couple also have a son named Alexander Jack John Buckley-Ford, who was born in 2012. The family currently reside in London, where Ford’s label is based.

Although probably most famous for his aftershaves, Ford is also a film director having directed A Single Man in 2009.
