Al Horford Marries Former Miss Universe

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Monday, December 26th, 2011

Atlanta Hawks center Al Horford not only has skills on the basketball court he’s got game with the women too. The Chicago Sun-Times reported tonight that Horford married former Miss Universe winner Amelia Vega. The two were married on Christmas Eve and apparently they caught everyone by surprise with it.

The ceremony was held at the home of the singer’s uncle and aunt, the famous Dominican singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra, and his wife, Nora Vega de Guerra.

The report said the marriage came as something of a surprise because the newlyweds had not previously ­confirmed their ­engagement, and because few among the guests even knew they were going to a wedding.

Local media said the ­ceremony was simple but emotional, attended only by the couple’s parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents and other close relatives. The two tied the knot on Christmas Eve because the NBA’s 2011-2012 season began on Sunday after being shortened due to a lengthy lockout. (Chicago Sun-Times)

Here’s a picture of the beauty, they’ll be a photo gallery coming tomorrow!
