Stefanie Sun secretly married last month

SINGAPORE - Popular Chinese singer Stefanie Sun is said to have gotten secretly married at the end of last month.

A Shin Min Daily reporter discovered a marriage application while surfing the Registry of Marriages website, which showed that Sun, 32, had registered her union with boyfriend of 5 years, Nadim Van Der Ros, on 31 March 2011.

The ROM search showed details of Mr Van Der Ros' birthdate, as well as Sun's dialect name, Sng Ee Tze.

In past interviews, Sun had indicated that she would get married when she had the time, without providing any specifics.

The couple were wedded in low-key ceremony last month, when Sun came back to Singapore for a publicity tour.

Sun had been in a relationship with her boyfriend since 2006. He also moved from Hong Kong to Singapore in order to be with her. He is originally from Holland.

Sun has also been seen in public with Van Der Ros at the Ironman triathlon until last year, showing him support. He was a participant in the athletic competition.
