While same-sex marriage has been made legal in the UK, on the other side of the pond, Tom Ford revealed that he had recently gotten hitched to his long-time partner, writer and journalist Richard Buckley.

"We are now married which is nice. I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great. We were married in the States," the 52-year-old said. The couple have been together for over 27 years and have a son, Alexander, who was born via a surrogate in September 2012.

Tom, designer and director of Oscar-nominated film A Single Man had been giving a talk at the Apple Store on Regent Street, when he let slip about his marriage. There, he also spoke about a certain Jay-Z song named after him.

"What really freaks me out is when [Jay-Z's] at a giant stadium and performs it and there’s 60,000 people screaming your name... I want to crawl under a rock because I'm actually very, very, very shy," Tom said.
