Aidan Turner and Caitlin Fitzgerald decided to get married in Italy as they ‘didn’t want to wait’ during the Covid pandemic. 

A family source exclusively told MailOnline that the couple – who had been dating for three years – wed in an intimate ceremony last August, with his parents the only family members in attendance. 

Newly unearthed pictures show the newlyweds days after tying the knot as they flashed their gold bands while enjoying a romantic alfresco dinner date at Pierluigi’s restaurant in Rome. 

The images – taken on August 8 – showed the loved-up pair unable to keep their hands off each other as they sipped their drinks, holding onto one each other as they gazed into each other’s eyes.

Aidan’s parents did not join the couple on the outing, despite flying out from their home in Dublin to watch the couple exchange their vows.  

The insider revealed that although the couple wanted an intimate ceremony, Aidan insisted on his beloved mother Eileen and father Pearse being present. 

‘Aidan wouldn’t have got married without them,’ said the source. ‘The rest of the family heard about the wedding afterwards. Of course, everyone is delighted for him.’

The couple had flown to Ireland prior to the pandemic so that Caitlin could meet his relatives, and it seems she made quite the impression on his family.

‘She’s lovely and they’re very happy,’ the source said. ‘And of course, she had Irish roots, so that helps as well..

‘They’re no different to any young couple in love. They didn’t want to wait until after Covid to get married, so they just went ahead. Good luck to them.’

The news comes after it was claimed the couple were eager to wed as soon as their schedules cleared, but kept their nuptials quiet due to their private lifestyles. 

A source told The Sun: ‘The couple are both madly in love and couldn’t wait to get hitched when their schedules allowed.’

The source added to The Sun: ‘They’re both very private and have kept the ceremony very much under wraps, but he has been seen taking lockdown walks with his wedding ring on show.

‘Aidan hasn’t been in a rush to get wed and has very much been waiting for ‘The One’ to come along — and anyone who sees them knows they’re the perfect match.’ MailOnline has contacted representatives for comment.

The TV and film stars have been dating since 2018 after growing close while shooting scenes for fantasy movie The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot in Massachusetts.  

Insiders claim they rarely mingled with other cast members while staying at the Deerfield Inn, near Boston.

The pair have largely kept their romance low-key, with Aidan saying in a 2019 interview: ‘I do have a girlfriend, yeah.’   

In 2018, Glamour magazine published a rare essay by the blonde entitled ‘No one can tell you what good sex looks like’, in which she admitted having ‘had some really bad sex in my life’.

The filmmaker said she had initially ‘crafted my bedroom behaviour around what I had seen women do on television – lots of excessive moaning and hair tossing but very little personal satisfaction’.   

Hobbit star Aidan won fans all over the world with his portrayal of the hunky Ross Poldark alongside his love interest Eleanor Tomlinson in the iconic drama, which concluded after five series in 2019.

The thespian’s late grandfather Desmond was a deputy director of the CIA during the Kennedy administration — officially known as the Directorate of Plans. 

The chief once attempted to assassinate Cuba’s former dictator Fidel Castro with a pen filled with Black Leaf 40 – a nicotine-based insecticide fatal to humans – in November 1963 in Paris.

As his plans fell through, Desmond would always complain that the U.S. missed its chance to take down Fidel. 

He joined the CIA in 1950 and cut his teeth directing operations against Communist China, but was not always successful.

When Desmond armed the leader of a 12,000-strong group of anti- communist insurgents, instead of attacking China, the man set himself up as a drug lord.

He had more success in the Philippines, albeit by encouraging maverick U.S. air force colonel Edward Lansdale, whose unscrupulous ‘psychological warfare’ tricks included leaving corpses drained of blood to look like the victims of vampires.

Desmond urged his operatives that ‘we are here not to monitor communism, we are here to destroy it’. One of his last acts in the Far East was to hatch a plan to ‘biologically immobilise’ Indonesia’s President Sukarno, a communist. 

FitzGerald took over CIA operations in 1963, two years after the fiasco of the Bay of Pigs — the U.S.-backed invasion of Cuba. 

Events proved that was a mistaken assumption. FitzGerald’s predecessors came up with various far-fetched ideas, most famously a box of 50 Cohiba cigars dusted with the deadly botulin toxin. They were never delivered amid doubts that he would ever smoke them.

Dublin native Aidan was rumoured to be engaged to a secret girlfriend in April 2018, shortly before he started dating Caitlin.

While little was known about his rumoured fiancée, she was believed to be ten-years his junior and based in the south-west of England.  

A source told MailOnline: ‘Aidan is engaged to a 24-year old graduate lawyer from Gloucester.’  

It is not known how long the pair had been dating, and they had not been pictured together publicly. 

Aidan was previously in a relationship with artist Nettie Wakefield, 33, whom he split from in 2017, following the end of his five-year romance with actress Sarah Greene, 36, in 2015. 

The Being Human actor also dated with co-star Lenora Crichlow, after meeting on the set of their supernatural BBC Three show in 2009.

Their break-up in 2011 is believed to be the reason behind his exit from the series, while his ex, 36, continued her role. 

Aidan’s latest TV series Leonardo was released in Italy earlier this month, and is scheduled to launch in the UK and Ireland on Amazon Prime Video on April 16. 

There has long been debate whether the painter was homosexual, a theme that is set to be explored in the eight-part series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Leonardo will ‘unlock the mystery’ behind Da Vinci’s genius as well as explore a tantalising secret in his life. 

Born in 1452, Leonardo is one of the greatest individuals of the last millennium, known primarily for his contributions to the art world, including paintings like the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. 

During the Rennaisance he dabbled in invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography.

The artist left no clue as to his own sexuality. He never married and it cannot be stated with certainty that he had a sexually intimate relationship with any person, male or female. 

Despite this, speculation over his sexuality has been long debated, and it has long been claimed that he was in a same-sex relationship with his apprentice, Gian Giacomo Caprotti, better known by his nickname Salai.  

Caprotti is thought to have entered Da Vinci’s household when he was around 10 years old, and worked as his assistant for the next 20 years acquiring the nickname Salai, or Little Devil.

Salai was used in a number of Da Vinci’s paintings as a model and it has even been suggested that Salai was the subject of his most famous painting, the Mona Lisa.

Art detective Silvano Vinceti has said the portrait, which hangs in the Louvre in Paris, is an amalgamation of a Florentine merchant’s wife and Da Vinci’s possible gay lover.  

Vinceti, the head of a research group called the National Committee of Cultural Heritage, based his findings on an infra-red examination of the famous painting.

It was previously thought that the picture was based on Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a merchant from Tuscany. It has not been made clear if the co-star Aidan is pictured kissing depicts Salai. 

WHO WAS LEONARDO DA VINCI? 

 

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simply Leonardo, is one of the greatest individuals of the last millenium. 

The poly math was a driving force behind the Renaissance and dabbled in invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, botany, writing, history, and cartography.

He has been attributed with the development of the parachute, helicopter and tank. 

He was born in what is modern-day Italy in 1452 and died at the age of 67 in France. 

After being born out of wedlock the visionary worked in Milan, Rome, Bologna and Venice. 

His most recognisable works include the Mona Lisa, the Last Supper, Vitruvian Man. 

Another piece of artwork, dubbed the Salvator Mundi, sold for a world record $450.3 million (£343 million) at a Christie’s auction in New York in 2017.
