Alexa Vega Marries Carlos Pena JrBy: Jerrica Tisdale - January 5, 2014
Former Spy Kids star Alexa Vega, 25, married fiancé Carlos Pena Jr, 24, on January 4, 2014. Pena Jr stars in the Nickelodeon hit show Big Time Rush. Four months ago, the couple became engaged, which they revealed on Twitter and Instagram. Vega posted a picture on her Instagram of Pena Jr with the caption “Hello fiancé.”
This is Vega’s second marriage, she married producer Sean Covel in 2010. Their marriage lasted for two years. The pair cited “irreconcilable differences” for their 2012 divorce, but Vega claims that the two still remain friends.
In September, she told People Magazine this about falling for Pena:
“When I met Carlos, I had never dated a Latin guy… I don’t know if it’s because all of my family is like a Latin crazy family, but I’ve only dated tall, lanky white guys – everybody has been over 6-foot-3 and white. Meanwhile, Carlos is 5-foot-7, very Latin and he’s an actor and I always said no actors – so, he was everything I wasn’t looking for, but everything I needed. He is truly incredible!”
At the time of the interview, Vega told the magazine that she had not started planning their wedding.
Before exchanging vows, Vega announced her wedding on Twitter by tweeting about her nerves.
The pair’s destination wedding took place at the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. After their vows were done, Vega made one more tweet that night/early morning:
It appears these celebrities want to start their year off memorable by making the ultimate vow of commitment. Congrats to all the new married couples. May their 2014 bring them lots of marriage prosperity.
