The singer exchanged vows with Lisa Pemberton last weekend (22Oct16) in a small ceremony at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles, where guests included movie producer Brian Grazer and billionaire businessman Warren Buffet.

"It was a small, cozy and meaningful event," Anka tells People.com, revealing his son Ethan, 11, had the honour of walking his bride down the aisle. "He's a cool little guy and my only son. I wanted to make him be a part of it."

The couple began dating six years ago after meeting at a friend's wedding, and the 75-year-old couldn't be happier.

"She's a great lady. And a big animal lover like me," he smiled.

It's Anka's third marriage, after previous unions to Anne De Zogheb from 1963 to 2000 and Anna Anka from 2008 to 2010.

He is also dad to five other children, all daughters, including Amanda, who is wed to actor Jason Bateman.
