Beauty queen Laura Lehmann surprised many by announcing that she has secretly married her partner Von Pessumal in a low-key ceremony.

On 23 May, the Miss World-Philippines 2017 shared a photo of her and the professional basketball player at the City Hall, and started her post with the word “Eloped.”

“Quietly got married earlier this year. And now, I want to spend the rest of my life making you as happy as you make me. I love you so much [Von]. This was the best day of my life & I will elope with you any time, any place… even in a small room behind city hall I’m so, so happy to be your wife,” she expressed.

We’re married!

As for the San Miguel guard, he wrote, “Some time ago, my now wife [Laura] and I quietly got married. We decided to keep it to ourselves for a while. The thing is, when you are with someone who shares the same Vision and Passion for success as yourself, matters such as Marriage simply become more of a legality than a drastic lifestyle change.”

“Having you in my life has been nothing short of perfection. It’s honestly like playing with a great point guard; if I do my job well I know my team will win. I will love you everyday and always.”

Lehmann and Pessumal announced their engagement in May 2020, having been together since they were students at the Ateneo de Manila University.
