Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have wed.

"For us, this is just a stepping stone to do what we ultimately want and that's to start a family together," the newly named "Wipeout" TV host said in a statement to People, which first reported the news of the couple's nuptials.

Around 35 friends and family of the singer – who donned a Dolce & Gabbana suit — and his TV host bride – dressed in a lace Monique Lhuillierr detailed gown — watched the pair marry on Friday evening on an undisclosed tropical island, their reps confirmed to the mag.

Vanessa told the mag that they managed to keep the details surrounding their wedding a secret – even from their guests.

"Nobody knew where they were going," she said.

Nick noted that they gave people "wedding invitations were in the form of a plane ticket."

He added that the dress code was "'island chic.' It was all very vague."

When Nick, 37, visited Access Hollywood Live in December 2010, he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that he loved his relationship with Vanessa.

"I think that we have a great relationship. The good thing about our situation is that we kind of took our time with it. We've been together four and half years," Nick said at the time.

Just last month, he said he was ready for more.

"I'm at a point in my life where I'm ready to start another chapter. Having kids is a big part of that," Nick told Parade magazine in an interview, which ran in their June 12 issue. "I'm excited for what comes next. Life is a journey, and I'm certainly ready to close this chapter and move on to the next."

"Nick & Vanessa's Dream Wedding" will air on TLC on July 30 at 9 PM ET/PT.
