Stacey Keibler has married boyfriend Jared Pobre, after a whirlwind romance. The pair has been dating for seven months, but were friends for around five years before things became romantic. The wedding comes as a surprise, as the public was not even aware Keibler was engaged. The two married in a small beach wedding in Mexico on Saturday. The wedding had been planned for several months.
“My happiness is indescribable!” Keibler tells People. “Marriage is the ultimate bond of love and friendship — it means putting all your faith, and trust into a person that you can’t help but believe is your soul mate.”
“We both felt strongly that our ‘love day’ should be intimately special, and that’s exactly what it was,” Keibler and Pobre said. “It was a blend of romance, tranquility, natural beauty, bonding and overwhelming love.”

Stacey Keibler has moved on smartly from her split with Hollywood playboy George Clooney. Two months after calling it quits with the actor, the 33-year-old former WWE Diva is now dating a tech entrepreneur.
On Monday, Keibler posted a picture of herself with Jared Pobre, and People confirmed their relationship. The photo shows the pair enjoying wine while in Paris. “Love being in the city of love!” the photo caption reads. Pobre is five years older than the statuesque beauty, which is considerably less than her 19-year age gap with Clooney. He is a CEO at Future Ads, a digital media platform for "results-focused" online advertising. He founded the company in 2001, and it now rakes in an estimated $50 million.
Keibler opened up about her split from Clooney while on "Good Morning America." She was there to promote her new show, "Supermarket Superstar."
Rumors began in March that they had split, and they did nothing but fuel the speculation after spending July Fourth separately. Clooney, a notorious bachelor, spent the U.S. patriotic holiday in Italy, traveling to the Villa d’Este on his boat, where there was a fireworks celebration for American guests.
Meanwhile, Keibler shared photos of herself spending July Fourth in California. Breakup rumors not confirmed at first, but the couple reportedly split after Keibler realized that she wants to have a family, while Clooney has different interests. “They knew it was never going to end in marriage or babies, and Stacey does want kids and a husband in the next few years,” a source reportedly told the Sun at the time.
But Keibler said on the morning show that the marriage rumors were far from the truth. “Everyone that knows me thinks it's the funniest story because that is the last thing on my mind,” she said. “I think I'm a bit different from most women out there. I'm not really thinking about that right now. We didn't discuss that.” The beauty added that the split was amicable. “I’m doing great,” she said.
Clooney is known for the numerous women he has dated over the years. He dated Kelly Preston, who is now married to John Travolta, for 14 months between 1987 and 1989. He went on to marry actress Talia Balsam in 1989, but they divorced in 1993, allegedly after arguments over money. That is the only time he has been married, and Clooney met Keibler just months after he split with longtime girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis.
