Greg Louganis Marries Partner
October 13, 2013
Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis married his partner Johnny Chaillot during a ceremony Saturday in Malibu.
"Last night was magical! I am so blessed!" the 53-year-old gold medal-winner and recent "Dive Master" coach for the ABC celebrity diving show Splash announced on Twitter. "Johnny Chaillot walked down the aisle by his sisters, and me by my coach," he revealed.
Louganis met his 52-year-old husband last year and the two dated for about a year before getting engaged last April.
The grooms stood before about 160 guests in matching white suits alongside a wedding party that included Chaillot's four sisters and Louganis' Olympic coach, Ron O'Brien, People magazine reported. Celebrity guests included actors Barbara Eden and French Stewart, as well as comedian Bruce Vilanch and fellow Olympians Janet Evans and Nadia Comaneci.
"It was amazing because I have so many people from all facets of my life here tonight and they are all here and celebrating it is all wonderful," Louganis told People after the ceremony, which was held at sunset. "I already feel different. The ceremony was so reflective and representative of who we are."
