Grazia (UK) - - 10 Hot Stories -

It was just weeks ago that Grazia re­vealed how Michael Fass­ben­der had fi­nally set­tled down, mov­ing to the coun­try­side out­side London with girl­friend Ali­cia Vikan­der, and telling friends he ‘thinks he could marry her’. Now it seems that the cou­ple are mov­ing at break­neck speed, with in­sid­ers con­firm­ing that they are al­ready plan­ning a top-se­cret wed­ding next month.

Ac­cord­ing to one source fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion, ‘They’re get­ting mar­ried in Ibiza, where they’ve hol­i­dayed to­gether be­fore, but the de­tails are be­ing closely guarded. Michael is so pri­vacy-con­scious that even guests don’t know ex­actly what the plan is, they’ve just been told when to ar­rive on the is­land. He’s pay­ing for them all to stay in the same five-star re­sort, but hasn’t re­vealed which one for fear of the ex­act lo­ca­tion get­ting out.’

Friends of the cou­ple say that they’ve seen a marked change in Michael, 40, since meet­ing Ali­cia, 28, on the set of The Light Be­tween Oceans in 2014. ‘Few would have pic­tured him get­ting mar­ried, but it’s ob­vi­ous that he’s ex­tremely se­ri­ous about Ali­cia, and she him. Like their re­la­tion­ship, the wed­ding plans have been kept very low-pro­file, but it’s been on the cards for a while. It won’t be a starry, Hol­ly­wood cel­e­bra­tion, they’re keep­ing it to close friends and fam­ily. They have zero in­ter­est in be­ing a power cou­ple, and no­body knows if they’ll even con­firm the mar­riage once it has hap­pened.’

In­deed, both ac­tors have been keen to keep their ro­mance out of the spot­light, with Ali­cia say­ing last year, ‘I think we’ve made a clear state­ment that we keep cer­tain things just be­tween us. It was very easy to unite, but that’s quite per­sonal.’ Mean­while, Michael’s only public con­ces­sion that they are dat­ing was when he told a jour­nal­ist, ‘It just hap­pened. It’s good that it hap­pened. It is what it is.’

Let’s hope he’s slightly more forth­com­ing dur­ing the speeches…
