Stacy Keibler has married Jared Pobre in an intimate beach ceremony in Mexico.

The couple -- who started dating late last year -- got married on Saturday, and Keibler said she sees her husband as her "soul mate."

She told PEOPLE magazine: "My happiness is indescribable! Marriage is the ultimate bond of love and friendship."

Keibler added: "It means putting all your faith and trust into a person that you can't help but believe is your soul mate.

"Someone who has all of your best interests at heart; someone handpicked for you, to help you grow and be the best person that you can be. Jared is all of this for me."

Although the pair's romance has been relatively brief, they have known each other for five years and Keibler, who previously dated George Clooney, was delighted with the surprise ceremony in front of their families.

In a statement, the couple said: "We both felt strongly that our 'love day' should be intimately special, and that's exactly what it was.

"It was a blend of romance, tranquility, natural beauty, bonding and overwhelming love."
