Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

US pop leg­end Billy Joel has mar­ried long- time girl­friend Alexis Rod­er­ick, pop­ping their nup­tials on un­sus­pect­ing guests at a July 4 hol­i­day party.

The wed­ding, which took place on Joel’s Long Is­land es­tate, was of­fi­ci­ated by New York Gov­er­nor An­drew Cuomo.

Joel and Rod­er­ick ( pic­tured right), “sur­prised guests at their an­nual July 4th party by ex­chang­ing vows in front of their fam­ily and close friends,” said a state­ment is­sued by Joel’s pub­li­cist Claire Mer­curi.

Among the guests were ac­tor Kevin James and Joel’s daugh­ter Alexa Ray Joel, from his sec­ond wife, former su­per­model Christie Brink­ley.

Joel, 66, and Rod­er­ick, who is in her early 30s ac­cord­ing to US me­dia, are ex­pect­ing their first child.
