"We are thrilled and so excited and thank everyone for their good wishes," Champion shared in a statement.

The pair got to know one another a few years ago in Miami after being introduced by mutual friends. (Brazil native Robierb is a professional fine-arts photographer who travels between Miami, Atlanta, New York and Santa Monica). Rubem and Champion plan to exchange vows later this year.
