Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry marries for the second time

Singer ties the knot with Amanda Sheppard in the Caribbean

Roxy Music's Bryan Ferry has married his girlfriend Amanda Sheppard in a "simple, private ceremony".

According to the Daily Telegraph, the veteran singer tied the knot with the fashion PR on January 4 at the exclusive Amanyara resort. The pair have been dating since being introduced by one of Ferry's sons in 2009.

Confirming the marriage, 66-year-old Ferry commented on the 37-year age gap between the pair, saying: "You never meet people your own age who aren’t married. Unless they are divorcees knocking about, that sort of thing."

He also refused to rule out having children with Sheppard, stating: "Oh, I never feel comfortable predicting the future."

Ferry divorced his first wife, Lucy Helmore, in 2003 after 21 years of marriage. He has four sons from the relationship - Merlin, Tara, Isaac and Otis.

The singer was hospitalised with heart problems last year, but has said he now feels much fitter.

Ferry's last album was 2010's 'Olympia', which included collaborations with the likes of Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood and Scissor Sisters.
