Before the newlyweds said "I do" they opted for a pre-wedding reception at the Cowboy Dancehall, and an employee dished some details on the party. "It was just a little gathering," the staff member told People magazine. "He wanted to show them a Texas country good time."

This weekend Tony had more to celebrate as the news broke he has signed a three-year contract extension –  worth an estimated $43.3million – with his squad  "I'm very happy and I want to play for the Spurs my whole career and be a Spur for life," he told the San Antonio Express-News.

Tony was previously married to former Desperate Housewives star Eva from 2007 to 2011. In November 2011 she filed divorce papers citing "irreconcilable differences". While her former spouse was busy getting hitched, Eva has been allowing fans a sneak peek into her Italian holiday.

The 39-year-old has dated Ernesto Arguello and Eduardo Cruz – the brother of screen star Penelope Cruz – since parting ways with Tony.

She was then linked to Jose 'Pepe' Antonio Baston who she is thought to be on vacation with. Her new beau is president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company.
