Astronaut Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, one of the very first people to set foot on the moon, wed his “longtime love” in a private ceremony in Los Angeles.
Aldrin revealed in a Facebook post that the wedding occurred on his 93rd birthday, which was Friday.
His Facebook post announcing his marriage to Dr. Anca V Faur featured multiple images of the couple and, as of Saturday, had garnered 53,000 likes and loves.
In his post, Aldrin said “We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles, and are as excited as eloping teenagers.”
This is Aldrin’s fourth marriage.
On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Aldrin made history when they walked the lunar surface. Michael Collins was the third member of the crew.
