An outsider might think that former Miss Argentina Mariana Varela and former Miss Puerto Rico Fabiola Valentín are just very good friends. But the beauty queens set the record straight when they announced that they tied the knot.
The newlyweds shared the news on Oct. 30 through an Instagram reel with clips from their engagement, wedding, honeymoon, and other sweet moments from their relationship. “After deciding to keep our relationship private, we opened the doors on a special day,” the caption reads in Spanish.
The ceremony was held in a city courthouse in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Oct. 28. Both brides were dressed in similar white suit jackets styled differently. They were met with well wishes from fans, fellow pageant figures, and celebrities. Varela commented on their post in Spanish, “Thanks for all the love! We are very happy and blessed. I wish that the love that you are giving us is multiplied!”
The pair met at the 2020 Miss Grand International competition in Thailand. They both made it to the top 10 and appeared to remain close friends with plenty of posts together on social media. When they started dating is anyone’s guess for now, but since they went public with their love, it’s impossible not to see the incredible chemistry they’ve had since the beginning.
Best wishes to Varela and Valentín and may your love inspire many!
