The cliché goes that beauty pageants are a fairy tale and a dream come true for young women. Miss Argentina and Miss Puerto Rico proved it, and with the sweetest possible happy ending – a wedding.
Former beauty queens – South American Mariana Varela and Fabiola Valentin from the Caribbean island, meet at one of the most elite beauty pageants – Miss Grand International (MGI) in Thailand in 2020.
They are the current beauty queens for the respective year and represent their countries in the contest. Both performed very well and placed in the top 10 of the competition.
After the event, they remain close and start traveling together. They post “friendly” shots together. There are hints of their relationship in them, but it is not officially announced.
That’s why these days their fans and followers were shocked after the two made a surprise announcement on Instagram that they got married.
In the post, they also showed moments of their relationship, sustained in the style of a girl’s fairy tale – romantic walks on the beach, cuddling, champagne and the very proposal of marriage against the background of gold and silver balloons and roses.
The wedding itself took place in Puerto Rico on October 28.
The two have almost identical rings. The bride is apparently the Puerto Rican Fabiola, who is wearing a white dress – though far from traditional, and Mariana is in a white blazer and black trousers.
The publication states that they initially decided to keep their relationship a secret, but are now opening the doors to it after the “special day”.
Congratulations are pouring in from fans and colleagues, including Miss Ghana – Abena Akuaba. “MGI led to a beautiful union,” she wrote.
“Thank you for the love, we are happy and blessed,” replied Mariana Varela.
