She may not have gotten an Emmy this year, but at least So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley got a husband! The super-star reality host has reportedly tied the knot with comedian Patrick Kielty in Rome.

Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty married in a secret ceremony at St. Isidore's College Church in Rome on Saturday, September 29, according to Us Magazine. Only about 60 guests attended the wedding, which was not announced, even to friends, until shortly before the ceremony.

Reports from Rome indicate that the wedding was beautiful, chic and thoroughly planned.
Very few show-business personalities apparently attended, leaving a guest list populated mostly by family and friends. Even the priest was known to the couple -- Father Gary Donegan, the Kielty family's parish priest from Northern Ireland, was flown in to officiate the ceremony in Rome.

Cat Deeley apparently wore a white dress with numerous ruffles and had her hair pinned back for the night. The reception that followed remained in the area and finished by midnight.

Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty met in 2002 on the set of a British reality program, Fame Academy. Although they were reported to be only friends for most of the time since then, the two became a couple at some point around the end of 2011. There were rumors of an engagement party for the two this past spring, but Deeley and Kielty denied these.

The wedding gives Cat Deeley a big positive shortly after she lost out for the Emmy in the category of Best Reality Host on September 23. Beloved by many TV viewers and by many within the television industry, Cat Deeley has been nominated for the award twice but has not won. This year, she lost to Tom Bergeron of Dancing with the Stars.

There is no news yet of a honeymoon for the couple.
