She managed to keep their big day a secret for several months, but now Danielle Bux has delighted her Instagram followers by sharing a rare glimpse at her wedding to Nate Greenwald. The model, who was previously married to Gary Lineker from 2009 until 2016, posted a throwback shot to celebrate the New Year.

The photo shows Danielle walking along the beach at their nuptials, which were held at Nantucket Island in Massachusetts. The bride wore a slinky satin sleeveless gown for her big day, with a tulle veil sweeping along the floor behind her. "Walking into 2020 like!" Danielle wrote alongside the photo.

In fact, the two still best friends, despite a 19 year age gap. Speaking to The Mirror in September, Gary, 58, explained: "Danielle and I are best mates, we still speak three times a day, we text all the time. When she comes to London she stays with me, and when I go to LA I see her."

Speaking to The Times that same month, Gary suggested that Danielle's desire for children caused their split. The former England star recalled: "Obviously I would have done, but she said, 'It’s not fair on you.' Then I said, 'Well, I’d feel terrible if I stop you doing it.'" Gary shares four sons with his previous wife Michelle Cockayne.
