Madonna's brother weds partner one day after announcing engagement

Madonna's brother Christopher Ciccone has gotten hitched to his fiancé Ray Thacker just one day after the couple announced their engagement. The pair wed on Saturday in Beverley Hills, sharing the good news on Facebook.

Christopher shared the news that he was engaged to be married to his hairdresser boyfriend on Thursday, writing on the post: "getting married tomorrow...send gifts to my place." On Friday he announced the marriage, sharing a photo of himself with his new husband with their arms around each other.

Friends and fans alike were quick to congratulate the couple, with one person commenting: "What a wonderful couple! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness," while another wrote: "Congrats! You both look so handsome!"

 Madonna did not publicly congratulate her brother on his marriage, possibly due to the rift between the siblings that took place after Christopher published Life with my Sister Madonna, a tell-all book which caused the pair to fall out.

However, Christopher confirmed that the pair had mended their relationship during an interview with the Evening Standard in 2012. He said: [We're] on a perfectly personal level right now. As far as I'm concerned, we're good.

"We are in contact with each other, although I haven't seen her for a long time. We're back to being a brother and sister. I don't work for her, and it's better this way. I couldn't be more proud of her. She is a force to be reckoned with."

Madonna also appears to have mended rifts in her relationship with Guy Richie after a hearing over the living arrangements for their son Rocco Richie was disposed.

A source revealed to the Daily Mail that the family had managed to resolve their differences, saying: "Since Madonna's return to London, things have taken a definite turn for the better. Everyone is happier than they have been for weeks and it's great for all of them that life is getting back to normal."
