Big congratulations are in order for Tom Ford and his partner of 27 years, Richard Buckley.

During a conversation at the Regent Street Apple store in London on Monday evening, Ford, without fanfare, flashed the audience his wedding ring after saying of his partner, "We are now married, which is nice." He continued, "I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great, but we were married in the States."

The newlywed couple lives in London where Ford's eponymous fashion brand is based, but they own multiple properties, including a sprawling ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where Ford grew up.

The two met when Ford was 25 years old: He had just begun his rapidly ascending career in fashion, and Buckley -- the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Hommes International -- was 38. They have one son, Alexander John Buckley Ford, who was born in Sept. 2012.

We're so thrilled to hear the news and wish the couple a lifetime of happiness.
