This holiday season was particularly special for some celebrities, as a lot of them announced they were tying the knot. But, two celebs couldn’t wait anymore and decided to start 2012 as newlyweds. Johnny Wier and Victor Voronov got married on New Year’s Eve.
Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir was surely thrilled when he announced the big news on Twitter. “I’m married. No more livin’ in sin!” he said, as on New Year’s Eve him and his Russian boyfriend lawyer Victor Voronov tied the knot. Voronov posted on his Twitter account he was “ringing in the New Year with my new hubby @JohnnyGWeir! #ELATED”.
Later on, the figure skater added that the actual wedding is going to take place in summer, but the good news is that “all the official stuff is done now!”.
A few days before the New Year’s Eve special event, figure skater Johnny Weir finally disclosed some detailed aspects of his life, which until now this has been a seldom occurrence. Weir had an interview with IceNetwork.com., when he stated: “I’m getting married on New Year’s Eve. His name is Victor, he’s kind of everything that I’ve ever looked for and aspired to be in a relationship with.”
Although Victor Voronov is a lawyer and not pretty familiar with the figure skating realm, Weir said during the interview, the Russian attorney “loves watching me perform and seeing what I actually do, because he was kind of sheltered from it for a little while”. In fact, Voronov didn’t know about Weir’s figure skating until just recently. However, Voronov says that with Johnny he can be guaranteed of one thing: he will never get bored.
Weir’s rep gave some details regarding the New Year’s Eve ceremony. The two have “exchanged handwritten vows in the company of loving parents, Tony and Lili Voronov and Patti and John Weir” and will take “the new surname, Weir-Voronov, but professionally, Johnny will continue to be known as Johnny Weir”.
The two newlyweds will move to New York City, according to Weir. “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”.
