Ashley Young married his childhood sweetheart Nicky Pike in a secret ceremony over the weekend. However, the story isn’t as easy as it sounds. The pair had previously planned their big day back in 2001 only to cancel it two days before the marriage.

However, Ashley and Nicky got back together and are now married at the second time of asking. Nicky is the mother of Ashley Young’s two kids, 10-year-old son Tyler and his younger daughter Ellearana.

Both the kids were present for the wedding which took place at the posh Stoke Place hotel, Buckinghamshire.

Key figures present for the wedding were Aston Villa legend Stillian Petrov and former teammate Fabrice Muamba.

Ashley Young, 29 has been on the rise in his professional life as the winger has managed to turn his career at Manchester United after a stellar performance under Louis Van Gaal. Young was on the verge of being sold last season but he came out as one of the best players of Van Gaal.

Talks of a new contract have already begun and it is expected that the England international will pen a new deal during the pre-seasons.

We wish Ashley and Nicky Young a very happy married life!
