After a discrete two year romance, the two former pageant winners are now a married couple (Instagram)
Two former national pageant title holders, Miss Argentina and Miss Puerto Rico, have revealed that they fell in love and have now tied the knot.
It’s been reported that Mariana Varela, 26, from Argentina, and Fabiola Valentín, 22, from Puerto Rico, first met when they were both competing in the Miss Grand International 2020 competition.
They’ve seemingly managed to keep their two-year relationship under wraps, until now.
The stunning models made the announcement about their recent nuptials in an Instagram video, posted on both their accounts.
“After deciding to keep our relationship private, we opened the doors to it on a special day,” they wrote.
The heartwarming video documents the couple’s romance, travels, engagement night, and low-key wedding day.
It’s believed that the women, both dressed in white, got married on 28 October at the Marriage Bureau in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The video has racked up a staggering 2.6 million views and generated thousands of comments, with the vast majority of people expressing their best wishes for the happy couple and their life together.
Miss Grand Philippines 2020/2021 Samantha Bernardo was among those to congratulate her former pageant mates. “OMG! Congratulations sisters, love love love!” she commented.
