LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Sports legends Greg Norman and Chris Evert have married in the Bahamas, the weekly People reported on their website Sunday.
The couple, both 53, wed at sunset on front of 140 guests on Saturday evening, the report said. The pair announced their engagement last December.
Evert's youngest son Colton, 12, served as ring bearer, and sons Nicky, 14, and Alex, 16, walked her down the aisle. Also present were Norman's daughter Morgan, 23, and son Gregory Jr., 21, who served as best man.
Golfer Norman has won two British Open titles among scores of other tournaments, and former tennis world number one Evert won 18 Grand Slam titles.
The golfing legend has booked all 200 rooms at an exclusive hotel for four days, according to media reports.
Norman and his first wife Laura announced last year that they had reached an agreement on dividing an estimated 500-million-dollar fortune amassed by the former world number one during his golf and business career.
Evert has been married twice, to tennis player John Lloyd and skier Andy Mill.
