A pair of international beauty pageant winners are showing love wins.
Via USA TODAY: Miss Argentina 2020, Mariana Varela, 26, and Miss Puerto Rico 2020, Fabiola Valentin, 22, wrote on Instagram that they got married on Oct. 28 after having kept their relationship out of the public eye. “After deciding to keep our relationship private, we opened the doors to them on a special day. 28/10/22,” the couple wrote in a joint message on both of their Instagram pages.
Same-sex marriage was legalized in Puerto Rico in 2015 when it was legalized across the U.S. following a Supreme Court ruling. Argentina legalized it in 2010.
The couple each represented their countries in 2020 in the Miss Grand International competition, whose organizers sent well wishes to them on their marriage.
