Skater Johnny Weir Married Victor Voronov On New Year’s Eve


Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir, 27, tied the knot with his boyfriend Victor Voronov on New Year’s Eve, sharing his happy news with his 103,000 Twitter followers.

“I’m married!” he tweeted, later adding that his actual wedding ceremony will be held in the summer but “all the official stuff is done now! No more livin’ in sin!”

Voronov retweeted his partner’s comments, adding that he was “ringing in the New Year with my new hubby @JohnnyGWeir! #ELATED.”

Weir, who officially came out just one year ago, opened up about his upcoming nuptials a few days before ringing in the new year.

“I’m getting married on New Year’s Eve,” he said in an interview with “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 for a long time and we reconnected over the summer, and it’s just been a whirlwind.”

Voronov, who is Russian and a lawyer, “loves watching me perform and seeing what I actually do, because he was kind of sheltered from it for a little while.”

Weir said he recently went to both Moscow and Atlanta, where Voronov’s family lives and that they spent the holidays with Weir’s family.

“Christmas at the Weirs. Way to make a Jew feel welcome. Happy holidays!” Voronov tweeted.

The couple will be relocating to New York City.
