Andrea Bocelli marries longtime girlfriend Veronica Berti in Italy

That's "Amore" for Andrea Bocelli — the singer is now a married man!

The Italian tenor wed his longtime girlfriend Veronica Berti in a Tuscan village near Livorno, Italy, last week, his rep said in a statement to the Associated Press.

Bocelli, 55, and Berti, 30, have been together for 12 years and are already parents to daughter Virginia, who turned 2 on their March 21 wedding day. The newlyweds chose the day because it was their daughter's birthday and because it signified the start of spring.

The "Time to Say Goodbye" singer's sons Amos, 19, and Matteo, 16, also attended the intimate ceremony at the Sanctuary of Montenero in the west coastal town of Montenero.

The sanctuary dates to the 1300s and was built up into a basilica that was consecrated in 1818, according to the church's website.

The blind singer was previously married to the boys' mother, Enrica Cenzetti, but they split in 2002, according to People. It's the first marriage for Berti.

Berti wore a double silk dress by designer Ermanno Scervino and Boccelli wore a Corneliani suit, AP said, and guests joined the bride and groom at their home in Forte dei Marmi in Pisa, just north of Livorno, for the reception.
