Congrats to the happy couple! Kimora Lee Simmons and her investment banker beau Tim Leissner are married, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

The news was first revealed by none other than the fashion designer's ex-husband, Russell Simmons, who spilled the beans on Twitter. "All of us love @OfficialKimora but the fact is she is happily married," he wrote on Wednesday, Feb. 19. "Tim has been family for a while now."
