revealed to "Entertainment Tonight Canada" that she married sound engineer Demacio "Demo" Castellon over the summer. "We got married July 19. I love it," she said, according to People.com.
The couple met in 2006 while she was recording her album Loose. Furtado, who has a 5-year-old daughter from a previous relationship with DJ Jasper Gahunia, got engaged to Castellon last July. The 29-year-old, who also makes a cameo in this weekend's video game turned film "Max Payne," put the marriage rumor mill in motion when she was spotted wearing a diamond ring in Miami.
"It's a nice phase of my life," the singer said on the Canadian TV show. "I just feel kind of free and relaxed and more in tune with trying not to be so stressed out. [I'm] trying to enjoy things a little more."
During an interview with People.com in July of last year, Furtado explained why she and Gahunia never married. "I'm kind of modern. I don't really live by society's standards. Maybe in the next five years I'll get married, have more kids," she said. "One grandmother had eight kids, the other had 10. If I have that many kids, then I would need a hubby."
In February, tabloid reports surfaced that she and Castellon were expecting, but a representative for the singer denied the rumors on UsMagazine.com.
In her most recent interview, she didn't address whether she and Castellon are planning on having children anytime soon. "I'm happy. ... I'm excited about the future," Furtado said.
