"I'm married!" Weir tweeted. "No more livin' in sin!"

"Johnny Weir, 27, married Georgetown Law graduate, 28, in an early morning civil ceremony at the New York City Courthouse on Friday, Dec. 30, 2011," said Weir's rep, according to People. "The couple exchanged handwritten vows in the company of loving parents, Tony and Lili Voronov and Patti and John Weir. The couple has taken the new surname, Weir-Voronov, but professionally, Johnny will continue to be known as Johnny Weir."

Weir added in a statement, "I am so happy to have found my match. Finding someone to share your life with is one of the most important things a human can do and was preached to me by my mother.
