It’s a big year for Joaquin Castro

As his first year of tenure in the House of Representative comes to a close, the 39-year-old Texas politician entered a new stage in his life when he married fiancee Anna Flores in a private ceremony on Saturday, the Associated Press reports.

Over the summer, the Representative’s twin brother and Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro announced the couple’s engagement in a Facebook post.

“Congratulations to my brother, Joaquin Castro, and Anna Flores on their engagement! They've been together three years and have been great friends for five. May they have a blessed future together.”

Months later, Joaquin announced they were expecting a daughter in December. The Texas Rep. said the couple plans to hold a larger Catholic ceremony next summer.

“Anna and I have had an eventful and very blessed year,” Joaquin Castro said about his recent wedding, according to the Associated Press. “We are excited to embark on our journey together as a family.”
