Paloma Faith has reportedly got married in secret.

The 36-year-old singer has been dating her French beau, Leyman Lahcine, for four years, and the couple welcomed their first child into the world in December last year.

But it is believed the pair have decided to take their romance to the next step and have tied the knot in what was ''a very intimate and beautiful ceremony'' in London, England, where the duo were surrounded by close friends and family.

Speaking about the marital ceremony to The Sun Online, a source said: ''It's something Paloma wants to keep private. It was a very intimate and beautiful ceremony in London, with just close friends and family

''But some of her friends in the industry have recently been talking about Paloma quietly getting married.''

The 'Never Tear Us Apart' hitmaker also sparked rumours she was married after being spotted at The Royal Variety Performance earlier this year, which was rumoured to be wearing a diamond ring on her the ring finger on her left hand.

And it is believed Paloma is keen to keep her love life a secret because she doesn't want people to ''know her news'', although she is ''extremely happy'' with how life is panning out for her.

The insider added: ''Paloma isn't keen for people to know her news but she is extremely happy.''

And Paloma has previously addressed Leyman as her ''husband''.

Speaking previously about her relationship, she said: ''My mum said if you feel trapped, you're in the wrong relationship but if you feel freer than when you're single, you've met the right person.

''I'm in that place now. Leyman is my husband.''

However, Paloma - who was previously married to chef Rian Haynes for four years before they split in 2009 - believes starting a family with her beau is ''more bonding'' than exchanging wedding vows.

The ' I Just Can't Rely On You' vocalist said: ''I feel the fact we've got a child together is way more bonding than a piece of paper.

''When I'm like 80, I think I want to get married and try heroin.''

Paloma has yet to confirm the news.
