What a way to ring in the new year! Olympic skater Johnny Weir is officially off the market. The figure skating champion married his boyfriend, Georgetown Law graduate Victor Voronov on Dec. 30. He tweeted to New York Housewife Jill Zarin Wedding in summer! But all the official stuff is done now! No more livin' in sin!
Johnny Weir, 27, married Georgetown Law graduate, Victor Voronov, 28, in an early morning civil ceremony at the New York City Courthouse on Friday, Dec. 30, 2011, said Weir's rep via People magazine. The couple exchanged handwritten vows in the company of loving parents, Tony and Lili Voronov and Patti and John Weir. The couple has taken the new surname, Weir-Voronov, but professionally, Johnny will continue to be known as Johnny Weir.
Johnny and Victor will have a large wedding in July 2012 to celebrate with friends and family, added the rep.
Marrying Victor has been the greatest moment in my life and I will work very hard to make him proud and happy, Weir said in a statement. As an added benefit to all this joy, marriage gives your skin an amazing glow. I look forward to making a home for my family in Bergen County, New Jersey, and introducing my world of glitter and Faberge eggs to Victor.
His statement also said, I am so happy to have found my match. Finding someone to share your life with is one of the most important things a human can do and was preached to me by my mother. Victor is the epitome of a gentleman, as handsome as he is clever and loving. Our road to marriage has been a fast one, but one I never waivered on. I am honored to have been married in the great state of New York, and I hope more states pass laws allowing all Americans to be united through love and marriage.
Voronov said: Getting married to Johnny has been the greatest experience of my life. He is the most wonderful, caring and nurturing person - and I can be guaranteed of one thing - with Johnny, I will never be bored. The support from my friends and family has been overwhelming and I am looking forward to beginning my life with the most incredible person I have ever known.
The couple is currently vacationing in Punta Cana, enjoying some sun and surf. Touchdown Punta Cana! Time for a Corona with lime and a bite of swordfish! Tweeted the figure skater. Hubby Voronov tweeted his happiness as well I somehow find it so much easier to wake up uber-early when the reason is to Go on Vacation. Agreed? #PuntaCana #scubadiving #honeymooners
Weir said in an interview with IceNetwork.com that Voronov was kind of everything that I've ever looked for.
