Actress Uma Thurman (sidenote: In Japanese, Uma means “horse.” I’m just going to leave that there, thank you) and fiancé, multimillionaire Arpad Busson, arrived on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera earlier this week, and have been secluded since. The couple must be in the Bahamas for more than 48 hours before the government will issue a marriage license. As of yesterday, sources reported that preparations for a wedding ceremony were underway.
This will be Uma’s third marriage, and Busson’s second. She was previously tied to Gary Oldman and Ethan Hawke–with whom she has two children– while Busson has reproduced with supermodel Elle Macpherson. The two have been engaged since June, when Busson presented Thurman with a diamond the size of North America, orbited by 20 smaller diamonds that have become trapped in its gravitational pull.
