Congratulations are in order for #TheHerahs! Jamaican Olympian athlete, Elaine Thompson and beau, former athlete and coach Deron Herah tied the knot on Saturday, November 2.

The Loop Lifestyle team caught wind of the nuptials over the weekend via the Instagram page of @sparkiebabyofficial, who congratulated the newly-weds with this post on Sunday…

And early Tuesday morning, the track star confirmed that she is in fact married and tied the knot recently. She shared a charming note about her husband and their relationship with this message...

"I have a best friend as a husband, and he is my number one supporter. He’s a family man, and he’s always giving back to God. That is what makes him a beautiful man. We’re not perfect by any means, but that makes us beautiful as well. We’re not afraid to say we’re not perfect. We have our disagreements, but that comes along with marriage."

Photographer Leo Hudson captured the nuptials beautifully, event planner Aiesha Panton handled décor details, and her "brother", Olympic hurdler Omar McLeod was on hand to serenade his "sister from another mister".
