Fashion designer Tom Ford revealed that he and his longtime boyfriend Richard Buckley got married while speaking with Kinvara Balfour at London's Regent Street Apple store on Monday night (April 7, 2014). The Gucci alum and his beau tied the knot in a secret ceremony after 27 years of dating. "We are now married, which is nice," Tom Ford said and showed off his gold wedding ring during his appearance at the Apple store. "I know that was just made legal in the UK, which is great. We were married in the States." However, the Texan-born man gave few details on his nuptials.
Tom Ford and his boyfriend Richard Buckley started dating when the 52-year-old designer was 25 and the formerly editor in chief of Vogue Hommes International was 38. They first met at a fashion show in 1986 and went on three dates. The pair lived together four weeks later and welcomed their son Alexander John Buckley Ford into the world in 2012. The baby boy was believed to have been born via a surrogate.
