    Surprise! Barry Manilow is officially off the market.

    The 71-year-old crooner and longtime manager, Garry Kief, 66, have wed, a source told E! News on Wednesday. The two have not commented.

    Manilow, best known for '70s pop hits such as "Copacabana (at the Copa)," "Looks Like We Made It," "Could It Be Magic" and "Mandy" as well as for his glittering stage outfits, has always been notoriously private when it comes to his love life.

    A source told E! that while Manilow has never discussed his sexuality publicly, "he is not in the closet in any [other] aspect of his life."

    He and Kief have occasionally been spotted at celebrity events. Here they are at the 2008 wedding of singer and pianist Michael Feinstein and his partner, Terrence Flannery.

    Manilow and Kief exchanged vows in a ceremony at the pair's mansion in Palm Springs, California in front of about 50 guests, who were told they would be attending a lunch, E! News has learned. The couple did not file official paperwork to formalize their marriage.

    News about the nuptials was first reported by The National Enquirer and sister outlet Radar Online. People magazine reported that the couple's wedding ceremony took place last year.

    Speculation about Manilow's marital status began several months ago after the singer were spotted sporting what appeared to be a wedding band on his ring finger. He has, however, been seen without it on stage. Manilow is currently on a tour, which runs until June 17—his 72nd birthday.

    Guess he wasn't really heartbroken over Mandy. I'm so disillusioned

    I'm surprised to see that Garry isn't a woman's name.

    My gay brother took me to see him a billion years ago. It was outside and pouring rain. One of his dancers fell flat on her ass. He said he would either refund our money, or do the show without the dancers and orchestra, the crowd was on board with a show. So he played piano and sang for 2 hours in the pouring rain. I will always remember that night, it was a blast, and he was a class act

    It's impossible to listen to this song without singing along.

    I never understood the appeal of Barry Manilow. I was too young in the 70's to remember when he had hits, but Michael Bolton sort of reminds me of him. They're both singers who are huge for a few months, maybe a year, then completely forgotten because their music doesn't stand the test of time.

    I feel like I'm on acid looking at this picture.

    There's something 'not right' about every face.

    Bottom line, Barry Manilow will always be a legend and one of the greatest singer songwriters that has ever lived.

    He pales in comparison to the great Arthur Steven Lange.

    Maybe because you're picturing every face sucking a dick?

    Don't do that to yourself, bro
