Just last week, a video of actress Salma Hayek breastfeeding a starving African baby made the rounds of the Internet. Apparently, the video caught the attention, as well, of  her on-again, off-again lover -- and the father of her baby -- because he married Hayek on Valentine's Day, according to an official at a Paris city hall.

The official said the Mexican-born actress wed magnate Francois-Henri Pinault in a civil ceremony Saturday.

The nuptials followed a rocky romance. The two met in Italy in 2006, announced their engagement and had a baby, Valentina Paloma, in September 2007. They broke off their engagement last year but later made up.

The 42-year-old was nominated for an Oscar in 2003 for the film "Frida," in which she produced and starred. The 46-year-old Pinault is chief executive of the French luxury group PPR.
