Wow. Total whirlwind courtship! Maybe kids are on the way? People are already speculating that they married so quickly because she’s pregnant.

Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger, 36, and country music star Kenny Chesney, 37, were married Monday in a small ceremony on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a publicist for Renee has confirmed. The ceremony took place in front of close friends and family. It was the first marriage for both, although Renee was previously engaged to Jim Carrey, and Kenny called off his engagement in 1999 just weeks before the wedding,

The couple met at the Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit Jan. 15, where Chesney was singing and Zellweger was answering telephones. The public first learned of their relationship on April 29th, when Renee brought Kenny a margarita and a kiss onstage at his concert in Florida.
