Dominican Ex-Miss Universe Amelia Vega to Marry NBA Star

SANTO DOMINGO – The Dominican singer and former Miss Universe Amelia Vega is getting married Saturday to compatriot and NBA player Al Horford, according to online editions of local newspapers.

The reports say that the civil ceremony will be held at the home of the artist’s uncle, the award-winning Dominican singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra, and his wife Nora Vega.

The marriage will be the first for the singer and the Atlanta Hawks forward-center, who was an All-Star in the previous two NBA seasons.

The press also said that the wedding will be on Saturday since the NBA’s 2011-2012 season begins on Sunday after being shortened due to a lengthy lockout.

In 2003 the model Amelia Vega became the first Dominican to win the Miss Universe crown, which she did months before turning 19.

After passing the title on to her successor, the Dominican living in Miami opened two exclusive clothing stores there, hosted television programs and this year launched her first album, “Agua Dulce” (Fresh Water).

Horford, 25, has played his three NBA seasons with the Hawks, where he averaged 12 points and 9.6 rebounds per game.

Before turning professional, the Dominican player led the University of Florida to two NCAA titles in 2006 y 2007.
