Romania tennis star Simona Halep got married in her home town in September. She was surrounded by friends and family, but who is Simona Halep’s husband, Toni Iuruc?

On Wednesday 15 September 2021, Simona Halep married her boyfriend Toni Iuruc.

The couple tied the knot in a civil ceremony in Halep’s home town of Constanta, Romania.

It's a Wimbledon Thing

Halep posted a series of videos to social media of her wedding day.

One included a Mark Twain quote which read: “Give every day the chance to become the most beautiful day of your life.”

Halep only shared news of her wedding recently

The 29-year-old only confirmed she was getting married after this year’s US Open.

Halep, a former French Open and Wimbledon winner, reached the round of 16 in New York where she lost to Elina Svitolina.

She spoke to Romanian reporters about her upcoming wedding.

She told them: “I am emotional. These are different emotions than winning a Grand Slam, it’s the personal part, tennis remains tennis. This is an extremely important step, and I’m happy it’s happening.”
