Johnny Weir opted to ring in 2012 with a ring. A wedding ring, that is. The Olympic skater/author/reality star married boyfriend Victor Voronov, according to People. On Dec. 31 Weir tweeted to followers “I’m married! @vitya_zvesda ♥” and later posted to Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin after she asked the happy couple “What? No wedding?” via her page, “Wedding in summer! But all the official stuff is done now! No more livin’ in sin!”
Weir’s rep told People in a statement, “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.
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.”
Weir said in his own statement, “Marrying Victor has been the greatest moment in my life and I will work very hard to make him proud and happy. 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, N.J., and introducing my world of glitter and Faberge eggs to Victor. 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 wavered 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.”
His husband 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.”
