Three years ago — and after ten years of dating — she landed a marriage proposal from her long-time boyfriend Janne Grönroos.
And on Monday Eurovision 2013 star Krista Siegfrids revealed that she had finally tied the knot with Janne at a private wedding ceremony.
“DiNG DoNG!!!” the 31-year-old wrote on Facebook. “I wanna tell the world that I finally married Janne, the love of my life! I know that you have been waiting since 2013 😉 We got married in my beautiful hometown Kaskinen and it was PERFECT! It was the best day of my life and I’m so grateful and happy.”
“I did everything for him that I sang in Marry Me… except for one little thing… I did not change my last name!”
As you’d expect, the telegenic star looked absolutely stunning.
Walking down the aisle she turned heads in a white, floor-sweeping gown with plenty of lace and organza.
Illusion cutouts on the arms and chest gave a tantalising hint of what lay beneath, while also forming stunning outlines of flowers.
We pity the bridesmaids who had to follow her out of the church!
The last time we saw Krista in a wedding dress was at Eurovision 2013, when she sang her frothy Eurovision entry “Marry Me” and pleaded for her beloved to pop the question: “Baby I feel like a sinner/ Skipping dinner to get thinner/ Where is my proposal?”
But the gender-neutral lyrics never revealed the sex of her imaginary partner, who only came into focus at the very last moment when Krista kissed a female backing vocalist.
Krista, a straight ally, deemed the move a public protest over Finland’s failure to extend equal rights — including same-sex marriage — to gay people.
Her advocacy work was more than enough to justify my decision to feature her in Billboard magazine over the summer. She’s a singer — but she’s also a woman with a very big heart and even bigger convictions!
The wedding has been a long time coming.
Krista announced her engagement way back in October 2014. Her answer to his proposal? “HELL YEAH!”
DIIING DOOONG! ???? He proposed… I said HELL YEAH!!! ?????? #love #marryme #dingdong
Krista reprised her Eurovision entry at the Wiwi Jam — our two-night blowout at EuroClub in Kyiv last May.
We are over the moon for Krista and are pretty sure you are too. Do you have a message for the Finnish beauty? Any tips for a happy marriage you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments box below!
