Buzz Aldrin has tied the knot with his longtime love Dr Anca Faur on his 93rd birthday. The former astronaut was one of the three American astronauts to tread the moon as part of the legendary Apollo 11 mission in 1969. While Neil Armstrong was the first to step onto the moon, he was followed closely by Aldrin.
“On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers,” Aldrin wrote on Twitter.
Aldrin also shared a wholesome photo of him and Faur in wedding attire. Wishes and congratulations poured in for the couple. The former astronaut also received many birthday wishes, along with a dash of ‘over the moon’ jokes.
