Hayek marries billionaire lover

Salma Hayek and her on-off billionaire lover got hitched on Valentine’s Day, it has emerged. 

The 42-year-old Mexican beauty married Francois-Henri Pinault – the father of her 17-month-old daughter Valentina Paloma Pinault – at the town hall in Paris’s St Germain area.

The couple called time on their relationship last July, after announcing their engagement in March 2007, but were spotted cosying up together at the Dubai Film Festival in December.

Pinault, the head of luxury giant PPR, has two children from a previous marriage.

He is the son of one of France’s richest men, Francois Pinault, whose fortune is estimated at $16.9 billion (£11.9bn).

Hayek, who gained a best actress Oscar nomination for Frida in 2003, has also starred in Desperado and comedy-horror From Dusk Till Dawn.
