The year 2023 has started well with quite a few celebrity engagements and wedding announcements. After ringing in the new year, several stars were ready to take the next step in their relationships and make some epic proposals. Others said “yes” in magnificent ceremonies.
In a January Twitter post, the astronaut Buzz Aldrin revealed that he got married Dr. Anca Faur. He attached photos from the big day, which was also his 93rd birthday.
“On my 93rd birthday and the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation, I am happy to announce that my longtime love, Dr. Anca Faur, and I have been married,” he said. he writes. “We were brought together in a holy marriage in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles and we are as excited as runaway teenagers.”
Prior to his marriage to the businesswoman, Buzz was married and divorced three times. He welcomed the children James Michael Aldrin, Janice Ross Aldrin and Andre John Aldrin in his union with his first wife, Joan Archer Aldrin, which lasted from 1954 to 1974. He was married to his second wife, Beverly Van Zile, from 1975 to 1978, and to his third wife, Lois Driggs Cannon, of 1988 to 2012.
Buzz, who was part of the historic Apollo 11 mission, wore a traditional tuxedo for the nuptials while his bride wore a long-sleeved dress covered in lace and jewels. The Dancing with the stars alum wasn’t the only one with some exciting relationship news to share in 2023.
olympic figure skater Tessa Virtue revealed she was engaged to an NHL player Morgan Rielly in January. The couple met through mutual friends and have kept their relationship fairly private ever since. The ice dancer opened up about her love life in a rare interview on the ‘Without Losing Your Cool’ podcast after posting a photo with her soon-to-be hubby on her Instagram account.
“I was very closely watched for a long time, and I wouldn’t give out my phone number, I wouldn’t open up – I was very insular,” Tessa explained. “I think that has changed, though. I feel a lot more open now, and maybe it’s just to feel comfortable with who I am and what I want, and also being a good judge of character helps.
Morgan was just as excited as his fiancée to share the big news. “I feel very lucky,” he told the Toronto Star of his engagement that same month.
