Figure skater Johnny Weir has never been one to shy away from who he is. The proudly out and gay Olympian was also proud to announce that he tied the knot on New Years Eve 2011, introducing the world to Johnny Weir's husband Victor Voronov.
Weir took to Twitter on December 31, 2011 to announce a simple but clear, "I'm married!" He continued through a series of Tweets that there would be a formal wedding later in the year, "but all the official stuff is done now! ... No more livin in sin!" In an interview with IceNetwork.com, Weir expressed why Victor was the one
"He's kind of everything that I've ever looked for and aspired to be in a relationship with. We've known each other for a long time and we reconnected over the summer , and it's just been a whirlwind. I'm very happy with my personal life and also my professional life, and I thank God I can be exactly where I'm at."
For his part, Victor is a graduate of Emory and Georgetown Law. The couple has been together since 2011.

Andrew Wiggins is the biggest name that NCAA Men's hoops has to offer this year, and rightfully has NBA execs drooling at his potential. Holding the world by the balls, one would think Andrew Wiggins would want to enjoy the off court life that accompanies the best college player in America (any girl, any night,...), but it looks like he prefers a different, more settled path. Proof? Look no further than Andrew Wiggins girlfriend Alex Reid.
According to TerezOwens.com, Wiggins has recently started dating Reid, a singer/songwriter currently living in Los Angeles. While their Twitter timelines don't offer us even the slightest hint that there is a romantic relationship here, they do follow one another. Reid, is also an unabashed JayHawks fan, often tweeting and posting pictures in her support of the school.
Right now the status of this relationship rests on the reports of one TO tipster - and we'll be the first to admit, they've had the scoop on plenty of sports gossip stories. We'll see how this one plays out, but we know we'll see Alex Reid in full "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" mode come March.

The University of Southern California made a bit of a surprise hire when they tabbed former Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian to take over as head coach of the Trojans football squad. Immediately, USC faithful and pundits alike began to buzz that Sarkisian was not the right choice for the program, despite having previously worked as an offensive coach at the school under Pete Caroll. Unfortunately, it looks like it's going to be a long ride for the coach, and along for all of it will be Steve Sarkisian's wife Stephanie Sarkisian.
Fortunately for Coach Sark, his wife has been through the roller coasters provided by a football life. The couple has been together since college, and were married after graduating in 1997. The couple took vows on your average summer weekend,... except that Steve was headed off to Saskatchewan that week for his brief stint as a quarterback in the CFL. Stephanie joked to the Seattle Times that Steve's rookie season was nothing more than a lovely five month honeymoon in Regina, Canada.
After hanging up the spikes, the coaching carousel began. Steve began as the quarterbacks coach at El Camino College before three seasons at USC. He went to the NFL for one season as the Raiders QB coach before coming back to USC in 2005. Finally in 2008, Sarkisian took a head coaching gig at the University of Washington.
The family has been along for the ride. The 39 year old Steve and his wife Stephanie have three children: two daughters Ashley and Taylor and a son, Brady. As a quarterbacks coach from southern California, I wonder who the inspiration for his son's name was....
