(Newser) – It seems that Barry Manilow is a married man. He and his longtime male manager, Garry Kief, reportedly got hitched last year at a small, surprise ceremony in front of family and friends. The scoop comes from the National Enquirer, which brings the usual grain-of-salt alert, but other outlets say they've confirmed, including People (its obligatory song-themed first line is "Looks like they made it") and Us Weekly ("Hope he sang Copacabana at the reception!") The latter outlet also notes that Manilow, 71, has long kept his sexuality a private matter. Both he and the 66-year-old Kief wear wedding bands, but they reportedly didn't file official papers in California in order to keep the ceremony quiet, says People.
