Tennis legend Martina Navratilova
married her girlfriend Julia Lemigova in New York on Monday.
The 58-year-old Navratilova proposed at
the US Open in September.
She popped the question during a break
from her commenting duties for the Tennis Channel, presenting her
longtime girlfriend with a three carat diamond engagement ring, the
New York Post's Page Six reported at the time.
“I'm 58 years old. I got married for
the first time,” Navratilova told the
BBC shortly after the ceremony. “It's about time. Growing up
as a gay woman you just don't ever think about that.”
“And then, about ten years ago, I
thought, 'You know, I think within 10 years gay marriage will be
legal.' And here we are 10 years [later], making it legal.”
Lemigova, a former beauty queen, has
two children from a previous marriage and is the founder and CEO of
luxury skincare line Russie Blance.
