Celebrities have to deal with the public's prying eyes on a daily basis, and the press is frighteningly skilled at securing details of their private lives, so it always comes as a bit of a shock when something big happens in their lives that escapes our radar, like tying the knot.

Jon Batiste picked up an impressive five Grammy awards on April 3, including Album of the Year for 'We Are,' out of an even more impressive 11 nominations. But while that might be one of the happiest days of his life, another of his happiest days secretly happened two months prior. The musician privately married Suleika Jaouad, author of the bestselling cancer memoir 'Between Two Kingdoms,' back in February, they revealed to CBS Sunday Morning. 

The couple has been together for eight years but decided to cease the moment after Jaouad was diagnosed with leukemia for the second time. "We got married the day before I was admitted to the hospital to undergo my bone marrow transplant," she shared, adding that they didn't even have formal rings at their sudden "tiny, beautiful, little ceremony," and instead "used bread ties." 

Batiste is certainly not the first famous face to hold a secret ceremony away from the eyes of the press. Click through this gallery to see which other celebrity couples got married in secret.
