At the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 he sang “Amar pelos dois”, winning over Europe with his tale of “love for two”.
And all the while Salvador Sobral knew exactly what he was talking about, as he was involved in a long-term relationship with girlfriend — the French actress Jenna Thiam.
Well today we were pleased to confirm that his girlfriend is now his wife, as Salvador and Jenna tied the knot on December 29th. That was just one day after he turned 29. Talk about a gift that will keep on giving!
As Portuguese publication Impala reported, the pair wed in Praça do Braço de Prata, a former factory that is now an alternative cultural centre.
It’s known for countless musical events and frequently hosts jazz performances, which suggests the Eurovision 2017 winner felt right at home.
According to Impala, the wedding was celebrated in both Portuguese and French to honour both sides of their union.
Jenna, who is a year younger than Salvador, was also born in December. Born in Brussels, she modelled as a teenager before giving it up to pursue acting full-time.
According to Grazia, she turned down a role in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, so that she could finish her acting degree at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts of Paris.
During Eurovision 2017, Jenna was seen supporting Salvador on-the-ground in Kyiv. She was with him prior to his heart troubles, and stayed with him through the difficult and uncertain period of his transplant. Having already survived that mammoth ordeal — and his celebrity post-Eurovision — it seems their romance really will stand the test of time.
