Former Premier League referee Howard Webb has married long-term German girlfriend Bibiana Steinhaus, Daily Mail has reported.

The wedding took place privately during the last international break in late March.

Steinhaus is also a referee who is still working as a Video Assistant Referee in the Bundesliga.

Webb, 49, and Steinhaus, 42, made their vows in Germany, with the pair unable to have any attendees to the ceremony in Hanover because of Covid-19 restrictions.

Speaking to German outlet BILD, Steinhaus said: “We got married during the last international break and are very happy.

“Unfortunately, due to the Corona regulation, Howard and I could only take this important step as a pair. Not even witnesses were allowed.

“Of course there was no honeymoon either.”

She, however, revealed that there would be a change in her name when she returns to Bundesliga VAR duties this month.

“As of now, Ms. Steinhaus-Webb is sitting in the Video-Assist-Center in Cologne,” she added.

The couple currently live apart, with Webb living in New York, while Steinhaus continues to work in Germany.

Webb moved abroad to live with Steinhaus after splitting from his wife Kay, the mother to his three children.

In his autobiography, The Man in the Middle, Webb, who is one of the most  recognizable match officials in the world, detailed the reasons for the divorce from his first wife Kay.

Talking about life as an official, Webb wrote: “We worked hard and played hard. If a match had gone well, we’d reward ourselves by piling back to someone’s room, cracking open the beers and chatting until the early hours.

“It was a charmed life, a self-centred life and I’d often experience a huge sense of anti-climax when I returned home.”
