After a two-and-a-half-year courtship, Bar Refaeli, 29, and her beau, Adi Ezra, 40, have announced they are tying the knot, Israel’s Ch. 2 News reported Wednesday.

Insiders told Ch. 2 that, while Adi didn’t pop the question while kneeling, the couple are planning a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony under a canopy.

“He asked her if she wanted to get married and she said yes,” a source said, adding that “They do not want to make a big deal out of it. They are in love and that’s enough for them.”

Major US Jewish Organizations on Left and Right Hail Trump’s Israel Visit

American Jewish organizations were in almost unanimous agreement over the success of US President Donald Trump's visit to Israel, a...

The two made their decision very recently, but were very careful to keep the big news under wraps: “They didn’t tell anyone; it’s their thing, and they only shared the news with those close to them.”

News of the marriage comes after a hard year between the two, personally, and in the media, over reports of Rafaeli’s connection to rock star Mick Jagger.

Ezra was reportedly humiliated by the gossip, and the two separated after a fight, but the source cited by Channel 2 contended that the reports were mistaken.

“The two had an argument – like between any couple. It is only those ‘good souls’ who wanted to separate them,” the source said.

The two met via mutual friends in February, 2013. In November, they decided to share an apartment in Tel Aviv’s prestigious W project near Rafaeli’s former digs.

A date and location for the wedding were not announced.

    SOMETHING IS DEFINITELY WRONG….THINKING HOLLYWOOD, BOLLYWOOD OR ISRAELIWOOD FILM STARS AND THEIR LIVES IS IMPORTAND TO THE WORLD OR TO WHAT IS GOING ON.

    THANK GOODNESS IT IS A JEW….BUT , FROM WHERE I SIT HER CHILDREN WOULD BE JEWISH ANYWAY AND AS WELL I HAVE NOT
    SEEN A STAR DO ANYTHING FOR A JEW OTHER THAN ADVERTISE
    THEIR OWN SPECIAL SELVES……SORRY BUT THIS IS HOW I FEEL.

    CORRUPTED BY STYLE , CORRUPTED BY FRIENDS AND CORRUPTED FROM SIMPLY HAVING WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU IS NOT
    IMPORTANT TO THE WORLD AT ALL.

    GOOD LUCK…..BUT , THEN WHO CARES FOR CHEERS .

      DO YOU KNOW BEING SHE ‘WAS WITH’ A NON JEW.
      She is no longer permitted to marry a Kohaine?

      IN a Jewish world living as a Jew should live…
      these are very important.

      THOSE WHO SAY LET HER LOVE AND MARRY WHO SHE WANTS…
      Problem is when a supposed Jewish publication posts her indecent living style then makes her into a proper woman…Then I can ask… did she make teshuvah repentance? Is she sincere? Is she a fickle person bouncing around? Is it really important to mention her, oh i see because she is Israeli…lucky her…

      As far as 5 years ago her romance with decaprio? she was mentioned as recent as last year. did she go back to him? was it press fodder, I dont care.

      Some one described me as a hateful person because of my comment…HMMM NO. I AM A JEW THAT HAS STANDARDS ACCORDING TO TORAH.
      RACISTS? AGAIN I AM A JEW THAT LIVES BY TORAH AS BEST I CAN.

      Some one said what makes you happy….thats for today..
      then there is tomorrow…

      TORAH IS A BLUE PRINT TO INSURE A BETTER FAMILY LIFE.

      TO THE READER: 11 YEARS DIFFERENCE IS NORMAL IN MANY CULTURES,EVEN MORE….well if this gets posted then you will have learned somethings by reading my answers.
      IF NOT THEN THE EDITOR WILL LEARN SOMETHING

  • V. Gates

    If they just met in February 2013…it hasn’t been “a two-and-a-half-year courtship”. But I wish them both happiness and many healthy, observant Jewish children.

    “They didn’t tell anyone; it’s their thing, and they only shared the news with those close to them.”

    The Algemeiner and its readers are really close to them?

    If goyishe reporters’ elevators do not reach the top floor, their Jewish counterparts’ elevators do not reach the lobby

  • dm reader

    that’s a racist attitude-you should marry who you fall in love with

    • dm reader

      I mean regardless of nationality,color, religion,–who makes you happy is who you should be with..that said, congrats to Bar & Adi–they seem really happy together & THAT is what matters!

  • Floyd Russak

    Wow. You are out of date. She dated Leonardo Di Caprio from 2007 to 2009. She was married to Arik Weinstein from 2003-2005.

  • Anitra King Lehman

    Mazal tov – hope you have many babies but just know – women in Israel stay younger longer

  • hannah bacharach

    She hasn’t been with DiCaprio in 5-6 years.

  • DACON9

    Something is wrong with this story.
    Last year she was dating Leonardo Decaprio…
    which was an abomination because he IS NOT Jewish.

    I wish this story is true so we can further our
    NATION OF YISRAEL.

    If true then
    I wish them many healthy happy children
    with TORAH as their guide.

    • BRYNABABY

      You sound like a hateful person. Abomination indeed! And your timing is off. She was dating Leonardo at least 3 or 4 years ago, not last year.

    • If the Torah were their guide they wouldn’t be living together in sin before marriage. The fact she’s 29 and he is 40 tells me he wants a trophy on his arm and she wants money. Not a good foundation on which to build a marriage!
