Kellie Pickler's secret wedding!

Kellie Pickler rang in the New Year by putting a brand new ring on her finger as she got married! Pickler, the American Idol alum, skipped off to the Caribbean to marry songwriter Kyle Jacobs.

Kellie Pickler, 24, and Kyle Jacobs, 37, first hooked up in 2008 and announced their engagement on June 15, 2010. They managed to avoid the celeb wedding news whirlwind by saying there was no date set and then ducked out for a surprise New Year's Day wedding.

Kellie Pickler's secret wedding!

"Country star Kellie Pickler and songwriter Kyle Jacobs were married in an intimate ceremony on Saturday, January 1, 2011 on a private island in the Caribbean," Pickler's rep said in a statement. "No further details or photos are available at this time."

With no dish on the affair having surfaced yet, there's no word on whether Pickler's father was there to walk her down the aisle as planned, but Pickler has confirmed her big news, via Twitter.

"Yes, it's true @kylecjacobs and I said 'I Do!' Thank you Jesus!" Pickler tweeted January 4.

Another glance at Twitter also reveals that American Idol alum Pickler had a "girls' night" in Nashville on December 27, which sounds like a bachelorette party to us! She also posted a sweet honeymooners-to-be photo the next day, with the caption "crazy about this man."

As to where the newlyweds are now that they've tied the knot, they haven't gone anywhere. Why would they? "Private Island. Caribbean. Cigar in one hand, Rum in the other. Someone just called me 'Mrs. Jacobs.'....sounds nice," Pickler tweeted.

"It's official...I'm Mr. Pickler...," her hubby tweeted in return.
