The couple look happy after reportedly tying the knot

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have married in an intimate Los Angeles ceremony, according to reports.

It’s thought that Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36 – who are parents to 10-month-old daughter North – quietly tied the knot after getting their marriage licence last week before they have a bigger do in Paris later in the month.

Kim and Kanye are now married on paper,’ a source tells Life & Style.

‘They got their licence in California over the past few days. Kim and North are on their way to NYC now.’

The couple certainly looked happy when they stepped out in New York on Saturday night and were seen smiling and laughing as they walked arm-in-arm.

Both have kept quiet about the rumours but one insider tells E! News that the speculation is ‘not true’.

Whether they’ve got hitched or not, Kim and Kanye will have a civil ceremony in the US at some point before their wedding in Paris, which is believed to be taking place on 24 May.
