CHRISTIAN BENTEKE has married in secret.
And he labelled his new bride and himself Beauty and the Beast.
The towering Crystal Palace striker tied the knot with long-time partner Fortune in a private ceremony two weekends ago.
Benteke, 26, posted pictures of their big day on Instagram.
The former Liverpool and Aston Villa frontman displayed a nice line in self-deprecating humour with his choice of captions.
He wrote: “The Beauty and the Beast. Best Day Ever 8-07-17.”
Zaire-born Benteke and Fortune have two children together – son Jaden and daughter Nylah.
In another picture two-year-old Jaden holds up a chocolate heart bearing the message: “Here Comes The Bride.”
