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.
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.”
