Al Horford has officially tied the knot with ex-Miss Universe Amelia Vega, cementing the Dominican singer/ beauty queen in the WAG Hall of Fame for all of eternity.

According to Fox News Latino, the two were wed on Saturday during a surprise wedding in Santo Domingo.

Kim Kardashian may be a jersey chaser whose time in the spotlight has made her the most widely recognized WAG, but she can't compete with one of the most beautiful women in the world.

Horford scored here. His wife is the ultimate catch and those who were upset about not being able to see Eva Longoria at NBA games anymore are going to be blessed with a huge upgrade.

It's not very often that a professional athlete finds himself way out of his league, but that's clearly the case here. It's impossible to hate on Horford though, as he has to be commended for pulling in such a catch.

Horford is an asset to the Hawks and a fairly well recognized player in the league, but his celebrity just increased tenfold.

He's now not just Al Horford, he's Al Horford—Amelia Vega's husband.

It's hard to imagine he's upset that he's going to be most well-known for getting hitched to Vega. After all, there are far worse things one could be identified with.
