​Montevideo: Uruguayan football star Diego Forlan, 34, got married to Paz Cardoso, a 23-year-old student, in a private ceremony here.

Forlan arrived here after playing the Confederations Cup in Brazil where Uruguay ended fourth. After his wedding Tuesday, he will only have a three-day holiday before returning to the Brazilian team Inter, where he currently plays, reports Xinhua.

The civil marriage ceremony was held Tuesday night in Cardoso family's home in Carrasco neighbourhood, very near to Forlan's family home. The newlyweds will celebrate in a small private cocktail party later.

The religious marriage ceremony will be held Dec 12 when they will organise a party.

The player of the tournament of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa made his relationship official last summer.

Paz is a medical student and also plays field hockey.

Forlan was about to get married back in 2011 to Argentine model Zaira Nara but the wedding was cancelled less than one month before the scheduled date.
