It is always said that the person who comes second is not remembered in the long run. For example, we all know Neil Armstrong was the first man to step on the moon on July 20, 1969. But who was the second? One might forget the name. However, that is not the case with Buzz Aldrin. Aldrin and Armstrong took their first steps out of the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle to be the first humans to land on the moon. The former astronaut is now 93 years old, and he has married once again… for the FOURTH time!

Buzz Aldrin retired from NASA in 1971 and logged 289 hours and 53 minutes in space. Aldrin has been married thrice before this – Joan Archer (m. 1954–1974), Beverly Van Zile (m. 1975–1978), and Lois Driggs Cannon (m. 1988–2012). Now, after a decade, he has married the 63-year-old Dr. Anca Faur, who was also his longtime girlfriend. Apart from their romantic relationship, the two share a personal relationship as well. Faur is also listed as the Executive Vice President of Buzz Aldrin Ventures LLC.

Buzz Aldrin marries for the FOURTH time

Aldrin took to his Twitter to share a heartfelt statement. He writes, “On my 93rd birthday & the day I will also be honored by Living Legends of Aviation I am pleased to announce that my longtime love Dr. Anca Faur & I have tied the knot. We were joined in holy matrimony in a small private ceremony in Los Angeles & are as excited as eloping teenagers.”

Dr. Buzz Aldrin also thanked his well-wishers. He wrote, “Thank you for all of the Happy Birthday wishes and heartfelt goodwill! It means a lot and I hope to continue serving a greater cause for many more revolutions around the sun!! Onward and upward and best wishes to all of you as well!”
