    Figure skating champ Johnny Weir has scored yet another big prize—this time it's a wedding ring!

    The three-time U.S. National Champion tied the knot with lawyer boyfriend Victor Voronov on New Year's Eve Eve.

    The flamboyant Olympic skater broke the news by tweeting: "I'm married! @vitya_zvesda ♥"

    The civil ceremony took place on Dec. 30 in a New York City courthouse, where the couple exchanged handwritten vows in front of their parents.

    Weir, 27, and Voronov, 28, will now take on a new surname, Weir-Voronov, though Johnny will continue to skate professionally under his more recognized nonhyphenated name.

    "I am so happy to have found my match," he said in a statement. "Finding someone to share your life with is one of the most important things a human can do and was preached to me by my mother. Victor is the epitome of a gentleman, as handsome as he is clever and loving.

    "Our road to marriage has been a fast one, but one I never waivered on. I am honored to have been married in the great state of New York and I hope more states pass laws allowing all Americans to be united through love and marriage."

    "Marrying Victor has been the greatest moment in my life and I will work very hard to make him proud and happy. As an added benefit to all this joy, marriage gives your skin an amazing glow."

    As for when the lovebirds will celebrate their union in front of friends and family with what could only be a lavish wedding?

    The Olympian revealed to friend and former Real Housewife Jill Zarin: "Wedding in summer! But all the official stuff is done now! No more livin' in sin!"

    His rep later confirmed that a larger ceremony will take place this July.

    Of course, we can't wait to see what America's most fashionable ice skater will wear—congrats!
