Pageant queens Mariana Varela and Fabiola Valentín first met at Miss Grand International in 2020, but kept their love affair a secret.
But now, they've taken to social media to share the happy news that they finally tied the knot.
The happy couple got married last week on 28 October, with Mariana quickly sharing the news on Instagram.
She captioned the post, which was a beautiful compilation of the couple's special moments: "After deciding to keep our relationship private, we opened the doors to them on a special day."
One particular clip that brought a tear to many eyes showed a balloon-filled living room and the words: "Marry Me?", surrounded by fairy lights.
Of course, people were ecstatic for the happy couple, with one fan saying: "Omg congratulations MGI brought together a beautiful union."
While another added: "Congratulations beautiful. God bless your union and long live love!!!!"
A third added: "Congratulations my beauties. So beautiful that God gives you many blessings in your relationship and never ever lack the love so beautiful you have between you."
While another said that they were obsessed with the couple: "Kind of obsessed with the fact that miss Puerto Rico and miss Argentina just revealed that they got secretly married after meeting for the first time at the pageant," to be fair, we'd love to hear more about how they met!"
One said that they loved hearing the news: "Miss Argentina & Miss Puerto Rico 2020 secretly getting married after meeting at a pageant gotta be my favorite pop culture news of the year. I LOVE IT."
Another's excitement couldn't be contained so they used all-caps, naturally: "I AM ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED WITH MISS ARGENTINA AND MISS PUERTO RICO THAT JUST ANNOUNCED NOW THEY'RE ACTUALLY MARRIED AFTER KEEPING THEIR RELATIONSHIP A SECRET FOR 2 YEARS??????"
And honestly, same.
Mariana has since thanked everyone for their well wishes, saying: "Thanks for all the love! We are very happy and blessed. I wish you that the love you are giving us is multiplied! Endless thanks," she said.
