Frankie Valli is a married man once more! The legendary Four Seasons singer, 89, tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Jackie Jacobs, 60, at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas on Monday, June 26.

"It's terrific to have found love once again at this stage of my life," the singer told People upon revealing the exciting news.

He then married MaryAnn Hannagan in 1974, and was with her until 1982. His third marriage was to Randy Clohessy, from 1984 to 2004.
