Mariana Varela (Miss Universe Argentina 2019) Fabiola Valentin (Miss Grand Puerto Rico 2020) have now shared with the world that they've been dating for two years and even got married.
Newlyweds Varela and Valentin made their official announcement in an Instagram post shared this week. The couple posted an incredibly sweet montage of videos and pictures of them together and revealed that they tied the knot on October 28, 2022. The post was set to the tune of "Lugar Seguro" by Puerto Rican singer Jay Wheeler.
The caption, originally written in Spanish, reads:
"After deciding to keep our relationship private, we've opened to doors to it on a special day."
Even though there are several pictures of them together on their respective Instagram grids, Varela (@marianajvarela) and Valentin (@fabiolavalentinpr) had never declared that they were officially dating prior to this announcement.
The story of two women finding love within the Miss Universe pageant system, going on to date, and ultimately getting married is like the ultimate plot for an LGBTQ+ rom-com. In the comments section of their joint post, there is nothing but support for Varela and Valentin's beautiful relationship.
