Rep. Joaquin Castro is now a married man.

ITK hears the Texas Democrat tied the knot with his fiancé, Anna Flores, in a private ceremony Saturday in his home state.

The congressman’s twin brother, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro (D), handed the groom the ring during the intimate affair.

While the weekend San Antonio nuptials were attended by family members, Castro and his new bride are planning a Catholic ceremony next summer to celebrate with their pals.

Getting hitched is one of many life changes for Castro: He’s also about to be a new dad. Flores is expecting the couple’s first child, a girl, next month.

Castro said in a statement, “Anna and I have had an eventful and very blessed year. We are excited to embark on our journey together as a family.” 

Castro, 39, revealed to ITK earlier this fall that Flores reserved naming rights for the child if they were to have a daughter.

He quipped at the time, “Negotiating the final name with [Anna] has been tougher than negotiating with Republicans on Capitol Hill.”
