Johnny Weir To Marry Boyfriend Victor Voronov On New Year’s Eve!
Congrads are in order! Olympic ice skater & reality star, Johnny Weir just got hitched to his boyfriend Victor Voronov yesterday!
Two-time Olympian Johnny Weir is set to marry his boyfriend Victor Voronov on New Year’s Eve.
The 27-year-old Weir, who only came out gay roughly a year ago in his memoir Welcome to my World, told IceNetwork.com that the pair will tie the knot on Saturday, presumably in New York.
“I’m getting married on New Year’s Eve,” Weir said. “His name is Victor, he’s kind of everything that I’ve ever looked for and aspired to be in a relationship with. We’ve known each other for a long time and we reconnected over the summer, and it’s just been a whirlwind.”
“I’m very happy with my personal life and also my professional life, and I thank God I can be exactly where I’m at,” he added.
“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 my razzle dazzle.”
In an interview with The GA Voice, Weir mentioned that his 28-year-old boyfriend had only recently come out gay.
According to his Facebook page, the couple are legal married now! Congratulations!
