At 93, Legendary Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Marries His ’’Longtime Love’’ and He Chose a Special Day to Do It

In 1969, Buzz Aldrin made history as the second man ever to touch the surface of the moon. And today, this legendary astronaut is still living his life to the fullest. On his 93rd birthday, Buzz married his longtime girlfriend who is 30 years his junior, proving that when 2 hearts are deeply connected, there is no age limit or age gap that can stop their love.

Born Edwin Aldrin, the retired astronaut has been married 3 times previously and is a father to 3 children. He also has 4 grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

His new bride is 63-year-old Dr. Anca Faur. Anca has a PhD in chemical engineering and has been working as the Executive Vice President of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC since 2019.

The retired astronaut announced the big news on his Twitter, sharing 2 photos of the happy day. He wore a tuxedo, while his bride wore a long-sleeved glittering dress. Buzz tweeted, ’’On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation, I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot.’’

He added, ’’We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers.’’


In another tweet that followed the first one, Buzz thanked his fans for all their birthday wishes and sweet messages. The 93-year-old moon walker wrote, ’’It means a lot and I hope to continue serving a greater cause for many more revolutions around the sun.’’

Seeing this inspiring couple reminds us that life is an exciting journey that doesn’t have to be slowed down by age. We wish these lovebirds all the best, and we’re ’’over the moon’’ to see them so in love.

What do you think of this lovely couple? Do you agree that it is never too late to be in love and even to tie the knot?
