NEW YORK – Billy Joel and Alexis Roderick have got married in a surprise ceremony in New York in front of “family and close friends”.
The ‘Piano Man’ hit-maker tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend on Saturday evening (04.07.15), surprising guests including “family and close friends” who had gathered for their annual July 4 party.
The couple held the ceremony at Billy’s estate on Long Island, New York, with politician Andrew Cuomo, ‘Zookeeper’ actor Kevin James, and the musician’s 29-year-old daughter from his marriage to model Christine Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel, in attendance.
Christine who was married to Billy from 1985 to 1994 was also present for the ceremony and later gushed about her ex-husband’s beautiful bride.
“Congratulation to the glowing bride and groom and to my daughter Alexa, who has a wonderful friend in Alexis! Wishing the growing family every happiness!” she wrote on her Instagram.
The news of Billy’s fourth marriage comes just a few months after Alexis, a 33-year-old former Morgan Stanley executive, revealed she was pregnant with the couple’s first child, a daughter, which is due later in the summer.
