"I lost so many friends in college -- I would say more than half of my closest friends. Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married which is nice," he said. "I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."

No other details about the surprise wedding are known.

The couple already has one son together, Alexander John Buckley Ford, who was born in 2012.

Ford has previously talked about meeting Buckley when he was 25 years old, and says it was love at first sight with the former Women's Wear Daily fashion editor, who's 13 years his senior.

"He was adorable, and he was a complete fool. He was sort of dancing around, flashing his eyes at me, and trying so hard to be charming. I decided in that elevator ride that I was going to marry him," he told Out magazine in 2011.
