The newlyweds, who are expecting their first child together, tied the knot at Chelsea Registry Office on Monday, five months after they announced they were expecting a baby.
And the whirlwind nuptials are said to have come as quite a surprise to Louise, 46, who shares sons Charles, 17, and Beau, 12, with Jamie, 48, as she reportedly didn’t know they were engaged.

A source told OK!: ‘Louise was quite shocked, she only found out very recently. They kept it very under wraps, nobody even knew they were engaged.
‘It’s very mixed emotions for her, it’s difficult because she’s spoken quite openly about her regret, she’s blamed Strictly quite a lot but, unfortunately, you can’t turn the clock back.’
‘He wanted his sons to walk in with him but it was a very small affair. She only knew because the boys were there.’

The insider added Louise wasn’t ‘given a lot of time to prepare’ because ‘Jamie wanted to be married before the baby was born’.
MailOnline has contacted Louise’s representatives for comment.
Jamie split from Louise in 2017 after 19 years of marriage following her stint on Strictly Come Dancing. Their divorce was official by 2018.
The footballer and Frida, 37, have maintained a low-profile since they started dating after having gone public with their romance in August 2020.
Following their wedding ceremony at Chelsea Registry Office, the newlyweds held a reception at Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair where they were joined by the likes of Frida’s new in-laws Harry and Sandra Redknapp, as well as Jamie’s cousin Frank Lampard and his wife Christine.

The wedding ceremony marks the second wedding for both of the pair, as Frida was previously married to hedge fund manager Jonathan Lourie.
The couple are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their son, who is due next month.
A source told The Sun: ‘Jamie and Frida were thrilled to learn they are expecting a boy. They’ve told their children and families.
‘Everyone just wants the little lad to arrive now. And just in time for Christmas… it couldn’t be more perfect.’
The Sky Sports pundit and his Swedish model girlfriend collectively have six children – Jamie shares Charles and Beau with ex Louise, while Frida shares four kids with hedge fund manager Jonathan, 58.
Jamie split from Eternal singer Louise in 2017 after 19 years of marriage and recently praised his ex-wife for doing a ‘great job’ with co-parenting their two sons.
The former footballer admitted they still ensure they’re ‘pulling the right way’ when it comes to looking after their sons Charley and Beau.
Speaking to HELLO!, Jamie said: ‘I’m very fortunate I’ve got two great boys. When you co-parent, it’s something you have to do together and make sure you’re both pulling the right way.’
He added: ‘Louise does a great job with the boys. We do the best we can and try to be tough but fair.’
