Country music singer Kellie Pickler joined the New Year new wives club by ringing in 2011 as a married woman.
The former American Idol star secretly exchanged vows with her songwriter beau Kyle Jacobs on 1 January (11).
Pickler accepted Jacobs' proposal back in June (10) and now her representative has confirmed the couple eloped over the holiday weekend and wed on a private island in the Caribbean.
The couple has been dating since 2008.
