Victor Voronov, Johnny Weir’s boyfriend, is now his husband! Yes, the two made it official and married on New Year’s Eve! Love is definitely in the air, with several celebrities tying the knot over the New Year’s weekend and getting engaged. Congratulations to Johnny and Victor!
The Olympic figure skater and his new husband, Victor Voronov, reportedly have known each other for quite some time, but according to Weir, they reconnected this past summer and the rest they say, is history. It wasn’t long before the two became engaged. Johnny gushed about his husband during an interview with Ice Network, done earlier this week before they said their “I do’s”:
“He’s wonderful. He’s totally not in my field at all. He didn’t even know I was a figure skater when we first met or even when we reconnected. He is Russian. He worked in [New York City] for a long time, and then he went back to Atlanta to do work for his family, and in a couple of weeks he’s moving back up to New York. He’s a lawyer. He’s in the legal field, completely separate from all of my razzle dazzle.”
After the couple married, Weir took to Twitter and expressed his excitement, telling his followers that he indeed was a married man, and that it was official. Voronov did the same, tweeting, “ringing in the New Year with my new hubby @JohnnyGWeir! #ELATED.”
He did go on to say that the actual wedding place will take place this summer. Now that’s a wedding I’d like an invite to! It undoubtedly will be spectacular. But, we do know that Weir is very private about his personal life, only coming out officially early last year. So, it might just be a low key affair.
So who is this man that stole Johnny Weir’s heart? According to Atlanta Boy, Voronov attended Roswell High School and later went to Emory, graduating in 2005. An attorney, he attended Georgetown Law School as well.
Congratulations to Johnny Weir and his husband, Victor Voronov. May you both have a lifetime of love, happiness and health!
