Salma Hayek is a married woman. Hayek had her baby with French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, Valentina Pinault, but broke up with her ex-fiance soon after the little girl's birth.

Salma Hayek gets married in the City of LoveNow news has arisen that Salma Hayek married Pinault over the weekend. Hayek and Pinault had the most romantic of weddings on Valentine's Day in the City of Love – Paris.

Well, maybe not the most romantic of weddings. Hayek was married at Paris City Hall of the 6th Arrondissement located in the central part of the city. It seems the couple headed to Paris in November without the paparazzi noticing and the trip added spark to the relationship that is now connected with rings.

Hayek's publicist Cari Ross confirmed that the Mexican-born superstar and the billionaire have tied the knot.

Hayek and Pinault met in 2006 and became engaged just over a year later. Within months in the summer of 2008, the couple had split. For a frequent subject of photographer's lenses', Hayek managed to keep her reunion with Pinault pretty quiet.

This is Salma's first wedding and Pinault's second. He has two children from that union that ceased in 2004.

Who is Pinault? Only the owner of Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci and enough other luxury brands to make you permanently jealous of Salma Hayek.

Hayek has dominated news of late because of her breast-feeding a malnourished child in Sierre Leone. Salma has definitely taking a page from the Angelina Jolie playbook and raising the ante.
