Wedding bells

The nephew of Singapore’s prime minister just married his boyfriend

Li Huanwu is the nephew of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, and grandson of the country’s first prime minister, Lee Kuan. This week, he married his partner, Heng Yirui, in a private ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa.

The guys made the big announcement on their social media pages.

Yirui, who works as a veterinarian, posted a photo himself and Huanwu wearing matching khaki pants and white button downs with an elephant standing in the background, along with the caption: “Today I marry my soul mate. Looking forward to a lifetime of moments like this with @hero.unit.”

Because everyone should be photographed on their wedding day with an elephant standing in the background!

Meanwhile, Huanwu took to Facebook to share the exciting news, posting several pictures of the couple enjoying their time together at Mana Pools National Park.

Happy couple

In a Facebook post, Yirui wrote: “Today I marry my soul mate,” Yirui wrote. “The journey has been a great one with the love and support of friends and family.”

“Here’s to a lifetime of loving companionship and good cheer!”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
