Andrea Bocelli is officially a married man.

The 55-year-old tenor tied the knot Friday with longtime girlfriend Veronica Berti in the coastal town of Livorno, Italy.

Reps for the couple confirmed the wedding news to People. Bocelli and Berti, 30, have been together for 12 years.

The couple have a daughter, Virginia, who celebrated her second birthday on March 21, the same day Bocelli and Berti were married. This marks the first marriage for Berti and the second for Bocelli.

The intimate ceremony was attended by only close friends and family, including Bocelli's two sons, Amos, 19, and Matteo, 16, from his previous marriage to Enrica Cenzatti, which ended in 2002.

A small reception followed at the couple's home in Forte dei Marmi, near Pisa.
