Emmy Award-winning host MJ Acosta got married to the love of her life, David Ruiz, in 2020 amid the pandemic. The long-term partners decided to elope as they had rescheduled their wedding multiple times. Ruiz, a US marine, proposed MJ during the Superbowl weekend, the someplace where they had first met.
The couple tied the holy knot in Los Cabos, Mexico, one of the pair's favorite go-to spots, as MJ said earlier. "I can't picture having done it anywhere else," says Acosta. Due to the restrictions caused by the ongoing pandemic, there was almost no one to attend the wedding. However, as soon as the rituals were done, they rushed to meet their friends and close ones virtually via video calls. Also, they set an exemplary deed by not registering for gifts; instead, they said they were searching for local charitable organizations. Acosta said, "We are researching local organizations that help Black and Brown communities. We'll accept donations instead of gifts." We wish the pair everlasting happiness and joy.
